2008 SEMA Show: Lexus IS-F by MotorworldHype.com

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2008

Lexus has decided that its participation at SEMA should rotate around its most tuner-friendly versions, particularly its series of IS sedans.

So besides the Five Axis IS-F that has been making the appearance beginning late last year, Lexus has struck some prominent names in tuning, along with a few publications, to produce a handful of bespoke cars to fill its booth. But the IS350 and four adjusted IS-Fs be on their own.

They will be coupled by another Five Axis production built from the cues of the GS 460, together with an LX570 SUV produced by the crew at Icon 4x4 Design.

MotorworldHype has taken a less aggressive path, yet more easily reachable for the regular consumer. Loads of carbon fiber to diminish some excess weight and a complete package of suspension, brake, engine and external changes provide sharper responses in all directions.

Interior: Blue Alcantara seat inserts Engine - Custom air intake system
