Altezza RS200 Z Edition 6 Speed.
Silver (Colour code 1CO)
The Altezza RS 200 Z Edition is a Japan only version of the Lexus is200. With a 4 cylinder 16 Valve 2.0 litre variable valve timing BEAMS engine, it produces 210 bhp, as opposed to the European model’s 6 cylinder engine – which makes only 170 bhp. The gearbox in the manual version is 6 speed – with close ratios to allow maximum use of the higher revs on which this engine thrives. The main difference between the RS 200 Z Edition and European versions, however – is in the handling. With the Yamaha designed 3S Beams engine being significantly shorter and mounted well back in the engine bay, there’s excellent weight distribution, making this a car that handles very well for a 4 door family Saloon. Combined with Toyota / Lexus build quality and excellent value, this is a car that’s hard to beat as an all rounder.
