Lexus's Answer to the GTS

http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...s-concept.html

Quote:
Looking at the IS-F CCS Concept, we can’t help but think of the equally-orange BMW M3 GTS
I kinda lol'd.

Lexus saw fit to upgrade the power a bit, too. The engine is untweaked, but a new exhaust system reportedly adds a dozen ponies, raising the 5.0-liter V8's output to 428. It's hard to say for certain from just the photos, but those brakes also appear to be carbon ceramic, too. All in all, the mods probably save around 125 pounds. That'll certainly help out on the track, though an additional 125 lbs. on top of that would be even better. Also, the odds of the IS F CCS making it to a Lexus dealer near you are zero.
Lexus knows wassup w/ the brake game.

maybe if floormats or gas pedal was made out of carbon ceramic wouldn't cause them to recall 9 million cars at cost of over $2billion.than they can realistically price the LFA with the savings.

Unpainted CF hood and trunk? Orange seatbacks and a blue steering wheel? Seriously? Does Toyota have a 13 year old designing the IS-F?

I don't think it's that bad. + the blue stitching on the wheel adds more hp than the ///M stitching on BMW steering wheels.

I'm still wondering why there's no ceramic brake kit on the M3 GTS let alone the regular M3.
