For those of you that share this author's disappointment that the <A HREF="http://www.ct200hforum.com/forum/lexus-ct200h-news-reviews/117358-lexus-darker-side-green-debate-cocktail-receptions.html">Lexus Darker Side of Green Debate / Cocktail Receptions</A> feature not an actual CT 200h but <A HREF="http://www.ct200hforum.com/forum/lexus-ct200h-news-reviews/117358-lexus-darker-side-green-debate-cocktail-receptions.html#post1629392">an abstract (though cool-looking) piece of art titled CT Umbra</A> in its place, fear not, for the real thing will follow soon enough.

Lexus revealed, on <A HREF="http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=139987362693535&ref=mf">a dedicated Facebook page</A> that you can be among the first in the world to experience the new CT 200h prototype at a location near you. This is a true insider experience: you’ll be able to see the vehicle, drive it and, most importantly, share your opinion on the still-in-development prototype with our engineers and designers. Attend an event to explore the CT 200h in a sophisticated virtual setting, learn about the Lexus brand, test drive the prototype vehicle and more. Become part of the inside story of this brand-new Lexus!
Given the nature of the two currently announced venues, this tour has the makings of being similar to previous Scion launches where the car is driven around the block in the vicinity of a hip boutique with an event employee riding shotgun. You must be 18 or over with a valid Driver’s License to drive.
And, for the terminally curious (like yours truly), the CT 200h World Preview Tour will depart for Australia after its final U.S. stops in Southern California and, from there, may proceed to Japan.
