Following the launch of IS 350C F-Sport in America, Lexus has also announced the MSRP for the IS F-Sport sedan for the British market as it becomes available to order. This model is based on the IS 250 and 220d and comes with a F-Sport body kit like that on the high performance IS-F model, probably for those who want one but can’t afford it!
Main features of the F-Sport kit include sporty bumpers, new grille, boot lid spoiler, lowered suspension and 18-inch wheels. Mind you some of the options are exclusive to the petrol-powered model and won’t come with the diesel. Inside, you get aluminium sports pedals, IS F-style sports seats, steering wheel and gear knob as well as leather/alcantara upholstery.
This model is also better equipped than the regular versions and come with rain-sensing wipers, HID headlights with AFS, 13-speaker audio system and memory settings for the front seats and door mirrors, plus a high-end touch screen navigation/multimedia system with a 40 GB hard disc which also can be used to store music.
