2010 Lexus IS 350C F-Sport Special Edition priced at $58,375

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2010

Pricing for Lexus' limited edition IS 350C F-Sport convertible has been revealed. At a base price of $58,375 (including a destination charge of $875), the car is priced $3,600 more than a fully-loaded IS 350C. The F-Sport model's performance was raised with the help of parts taken from Lexus' F-Sport catalog.

The model rides on new 19-inch forged aluminum wheels that are similar to those used on the IS-F. These wheels are wrapped in high-performance Michelin Pilot Sport rubber.

A revised suspension supports new rolling stock. The car has new springs that lower the car about one inch, while it also gets upgraded Bilstein shocks and new sway bars.

The car also features an upgraded brake kit and a unique grille insert. The IS 350C is available in Obsidian Black or Tungsten Pearl. 

All IS 350C F-Sport models get black leather seating with blue contrast stitching, heated and ventilated front seats, Bi-Xenon HID headlamps, and a hard-drive-based navigation system.

The F-sport logo can also been seen prominently on the unique embroidered floor mats, and the leather-wrapped shift knob. Emblems adorn the car's exterior.

The F-Sport convertibles are expected to arrive at dealerships later this month. But since only 100 examples will be made of this model, it's bound to run out pretty quickly.
