Lexus stuns with next generation LF-LC hybrid supercar

Lexus has lifted the covers on the second version of its LF-LC sports coupe concept at the Sydney Motor Show and hinted that it may go into production in some form.

The car, finished in a stunning Opal Blue - to match the natural base colour of the Australian gemstone, updates the first concept, revealed at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year.

Lexus is using many of the lessons learnt in its high-tech LFA supercar's construction, particularly merging carbon fibre and alloys to create a strong but extremely light body, and as we all know with our experience with the amazing Toyota 86, light kerbweight equals superb handling and performance.

It also features the next-generation of its Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain, imaginatively named Advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive, but making up for it with a smaller high-energy battery pack that helps combines with petrol power to make 372kW, and 500bhp, that's 60bhp more than the LS600h, making it the most powerful Lexus Hybrid in existance.

Bowater Honda plants more trees at Tahunanui's Back Beach

Today Bowater Honda held another successful Honda TreeFund tree planting day at the back beach of Tahunanui Beach as a part of the council's sand dune recovery programme.

To date Bowater Honda has provided over $70,000 worth of funding for over 13,500 trees which have been planted on Tahunanui Beach, in Appleby, the Moutere and on Haulashore Island.
Today the team from Bowater Honda, along with some dedicated local customers, turned up at the "Raised Carpark" on the Back Beach Road  to literally plant a truck load of trees into the sand dunes to aid in the sand dune recovery.

As one of the local customers commented "it is a whole lot easier planting trees in the sand than in the Moutere clay!", referencing a previous Bowater Honda TreeFund Tree Planting Day.

The planting day is a result of Honda’s unique TreeFund initiative. Passionate about restoring bio-diversity, Honda developed TreeFund as an opportunity for customers to become involved in the greening of their own local community and to encourage the planting of native flora. With 13 native trees planted for every new car sold, Honda has been funding tree plantings nationally since 2004, and to date over half a million trees have been planted around the country.

Honda TreeFund Planting Day

We are very excited to announce that Bowater Honda are conducting another Honda TreeFund Planting Day on Wednesday 19th September from 10am - 12pm at the Raised Carpark at Tahunanui Beach.

This is the first carpark on the right as you drive past the Skating Rink on the way to the back beach. Just drive down the back Beach Road and look for the Nelmac trucks, and the Honda sign written vehicles. You don't need to bring anything other than a great attitude and a caring community spirit. If you have a favourite spade bring that along too!

The Raised Carpark is at the very north of this map - the car park from which the Kite Surfing is normally based. We would love to see as many community minded locals down here as we can get.
