Who said hybrids have to be boring? Lexus heats up the CT200h

Lexus has exhaled its performance enhancing breath over its not so inspiring CT200h and given it a few tweaks to create the CT200h F-Sport and turn the clean and frugal commuter into a dab hand through the twisties.

In some respects the CT200h is no stranger to a bit of spirited driving though. Ok, so we're talking about the Japanese firm's Nurburgring 24 hour challenger but still, it shows what the Compact Touring (that's what the CT stands for) 200 hybrid is capable of.
