Stripped out IS-F revealed at the Tokyo Auto Salon
18 January 2010

Lexus has revealed a stripped-out clubsport version on the Lexus IS-F at the Tokyo Auto Salon.

The Lexus IS-F Circuit Club Sports features carbonfibre in place of many of the regular IS-F’s steel panels. Carbonfibre has been used on the bonnet, roof, boot, front wings, side skirts and rear diffuser.

The Club Sports’ interior also gets a carbonfibre makeover, although it hasn’t been revealed how much weight has been saved overall.

Lexus hasn’t made many changes under the bonnet, with the only major change being the addition of a new lightweight exhaust system, which boosts the V8’s power to 422bhp.

Our Verdict

Lexus IS 2005-2013

The Lexus IS is a sleek junior exec that makes for an interesting alternative but lacks a decent diesel option
