In addition to the 2022 Lexus IS 500 project vehicle with body kit the Japanese also have a very special one IS 350 F Sport taken to the SEMA Auto Show 2021. He calls himself "DSPORT & SCOTT PRUETT TRACK PERFORMANCE IS 350“And of course the name plays a role Scott Pruett at. He's not just a legendary racing driver and a member of the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America, he's also an ambassador for the Lexus brand. And so it is not surprising that the IS 350 F Sport, which incidentally works in cooperation with the DSPORT magazine was created, has been transformed into a real racer. And what you see here is probably just that the first phase of the project, as it is currently almost exclusively optical modifications acts. Because the cool racing stripes certainly do not provide more overall performance of the 3,5-liter V6 naturally aspirated engine. But that is still to come.
Performance improvement is still pending
The team states that the IS is more than the current output of 315 hp double will. But that will probably only be shown at SEMA 2022. So at the moment we can only talk about the unique foiling and talk about a few other details. The slide is from Troy Lee design and is inspired by Scott Pruett's helmet design. There was a special one under the vinyl dress bodykitmade by the Japanese company Artisan spirits comes and creates the necessary width so that the extended track fits well. The show car also has an adjustable landing gear installed and one Carbon-ceramic brakes. Specially designed for the racetrack were 19 inch rims in black (from ADVAN Racing), but currently it is on one set Rotiform KPS rims in matt copper and in 20 inch format.
the cabin has also changed massively
And inside? There is a complete one Roll bar and Carbon / Kevlar racing seats with 5-point sports harness from SPARCO. As mentioned earlier, the vehicle is not finished yet, so let's see if we can hear more from Lexus in the coming months. And what does Lexus actually want to say with the vehicle? The “fast all modifications can be purchased individually and configured according to customer requirements". If we get more information about the changes, there will of course be an update for this report. You will be informed of this if you simply take ours Feed subscribe to.
