Created for the bold pursuit of performance and geared for maximum exhilaration, the Lexus IS line encompasses an impressive range of premium performance models, each with its own unique personality. In addition to the original race-inspired IS 250 and IS 350 luxury sport sedans, there’s also the irresistibly mischievous IS C hardtop convertible and the aggressive “take-no-prisoners” IS F. And, with an equally soul-stirring selection of accessories to personalize your vehicle, you can create an IS that is distinctively yours.
F-Sport Performance Perfection
Designed with the true performance enthusiast in mind, Lexus F Sport Performance accessories intensify the IS experience through proving ground and track-tested components that enhance performance, handling, braking performance and agility. Not to mention that extra rush of adrenaline that comes from taking your IS to the next level.
The F Sport Performance Air Intake, available for IS sedans and the IS convertible, enables your engine to breathe easier, courtesy of a specially designed low-restriction intake and filter assembly that produces a deeper, more powerful engine sound, along with a slight increase in power at the pedal. Also, unlike many aftermarket intakes, the assembly is fully compatible with stock engine controls; plus, it’s emission-legal in all 50 states.
Music to Your Ears
Enthusiasts will also appreciate the F Sport Performance Exhaust, which infuses IS sedans with a powerful voice via a sport-tuned exhaust sound that complements the vehicle’s entire power range. Constructed entirely of stainless steel, this dual exhaust system includes polished mufflers, double-wall polished tips that feature the F Sport logo—and a decidedly more aggressive vehicle appearance.
How Low Can You Go?
F Sport Lowering Springs are precisely engineered to deliver the lowered ride height that performance aficionados crave, while also enhancing overall handling. When equipped with this set of four springs, IS sedans are lowered approximately one inch in the front and rear. And, because lowering the center of gravity helps reduce body lean during maneuvering—especially during cornering and evasive maneuvers—IS drivers enjoy quicker steering response and a crisper road feel.
What’s Stopping You?
For high-performance braking power, the F Sport Front and Rear Brake Upgrades for the IS sedans and IS Convertible provide improved stopping performance, along with pedal feel that’s firmer and more positive. These upgrades also improve fade resistance during repeated, demanding use. Featuring a six-piston opposed fixed caliper design in front and a four-piston opposed fixed caliper design in the rear including drilled cast iron rotors, the upgrade kits are e-coated for superior corrosion resistance and include low-dust performance brake pads. Finished in F Sport blue and featuring white F Sport logos, upgraded brakes also impart an aggressive visual appearance. (The F Sport Rear Brake Upgrade may only be used when equipped with the F Sport Front Brake Upgrade.)
The Advantage of Quick Engagements
Whether you’re looking for smooth shifts in stop-and-go traffic or want a clutch that can handle quick shifts all the way to the finish line, the F Sport Performance Clutch Set delivers. With an increased clamping force of approximately 15 percent, the clutch set yields higher torque capacity and quicker, more positive engagement. Available for IS sedans, the set features a high-capacity F Sport pressure plate that’s heat-treated for increased strength and stiffness, as well as greater load capacity.
Speaking of shifting, there’s also an F Sport Quickshifter Kit for IS sedans and the IS Convertible to further enhance shift feel, while decreasing shift throw by approximately 30 percent. The result is a more solid shifting experience. Precisely engineered and machined from aircraft-quality billet aluminum to change the shift lever’s pivot point, the kit makes possible quicker gear changes and heightens the manual transmission driving experience.
Forging Ahead, With Style
Forging transforms a solid piece of aluminum into an ultra-strong, lightweight wheel. And, in the case of the F Sport Forged Alloy Wheels, the result is a dramatic transformation for IS sedans (18-inch/all-wheel drive, 19-inch/rear-wheel drive)1, 2 and the IS Convertible (18-inch)1, lending a strong visual impact, by way of a distinctive 10-spoke design and eye-catching Dark Graphite finish. However, the true benefit of these stunning wheels lies in their performance, which is enhanced by a hub-centric design that virtually eliminates vibration, plus low aspect ratio tires that sport stiffer sidewalls to help enhance handling and deliver a firmer ride.
Sharing these same attributes are the F Sport 19-inch Full Face Wheels2, which feature a high-gloss Liquid Silver finish and availability for the entire IS line.
More Accessories, Greater Convenience
If keeping your cargo area organized is a challenge, the Envelope Cargo Net is an ideal solution for securing gear, groceries, tools and more. Crafted from durable, stain-resistant elastic-mesh netting, it attaches to existing points in your cargo area and folds flat for storage when not in use.
A Quick Fix for Flats
Whether you’re navigating city streets or out on the highway, repairing a flat tire on your IS will be quick and easy with the F Sport Onboard Tire Repair System. Designed to temporarily repair punctures in the tread area of up to 1/4-inch in diameter and get you back on the road, this clever kit features a lighted pressure gauge, plus an integrated tire sealant cartridge and compressor in one simple to use unit powered by any 12-volt outlet in the vehicle. And it all fits in a compact canvas case embroidered with the F Sport logo.
High Performance Protection for Your IS
Sun, wind, rain and debris can take their toll on the paint finish of your IS. But with a Genuine Lexus Car Cover, you’re assured of high performance protection from the elements. Constructed from ultra-thin, lightweight WeatherShield fabric that glides effortlessly over your vehicle, a unique encapsulation process integrates protective polymers within the fabric to shed water, dust, bird droppings, tree sap and industrial pollutants. The cover also features a heat-resistant patch around the exhaust pipe, license plate window and side mirror pockets for a precise fit.
The Carpet Cargo Mat is yet another way to help protect your IS. Tailored for an exact fit to your cargo area, the mat helps preserve the beauty of your original carpet and keep it free from premature wear and stains. Made of thick, heavy duty carpet to cushion your cargo, the mat features a non-skid backing to keep it from shifting and is easily removed for cleaning.
If you’re looking to make your IS stand out from the crowd, these racing-circuit-inspired G-Spider 18-inch alloy wheels1 may be exactly what you’re searching for. Featuring distinctive Y-spoke styling and a stunning dark gray finish, the wheels’ hub-centric design delivers superior balance and a silky smooth ride.
