Lexus displayed five tuned and modified cars at the Tokyo Auto Salon that were clearly aimed at highlighting the sporting side of the brand. At the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan, Lexus gave visitors the chance to view the IS-F Club Circuit Sports Racer (CCS-R), the IS-F Club Performance Accessory, the Gazoo Racing Lexus LFA, the CT200h F Sport, and a new interpretation of the LS 460 limousine.

The new CT 200h was given a special F-Sport guise that had a series of sporting accessories including alloy wheels, a body kit by Modellista and Recaro sports seats.

Meanwhile, the CCS-R received carbon fiber body panels, including front and rear spoilers, bonnet and boot lid, and a new frameless construction roll cage and polycarbonate windows. The inside of the vehicle had carbon fiber as well.

The material was used for the dashboard, centre console and door trims. The racing details included a six-point safety harness and short-diameter steering wheel with paddle shifts.

When it comes to performance, the CCS-R was fitted with racing suspension, brakes, cooling and exhaust, together with a mechanical limited-slip differential and forged alloys shod with slick tires.

TRD (Toyota Racing Department) developed the IS-F Club Performance Accessory, lending a bolder look to the most powerful member of the IS family with front and rear spoilers, a rear diffuser and a carbon fiber hood.

Furthermore, the cabin features the use of more carbon fiber material. Also installed was a set of sports seats finished in bright orange. The package also includes sports suspension and brakes, a titanium exhaust, magnesium wheels and a mechanical LSD.
