Lexus IS 250 Sports Concept: The poor man’s IS-F

Lexus of Australia showed a sports-inspired IS 250 at the 2008 Australian International Motor Show this past week. Based on the IS 250, the Sports Concept gets a number of visual enhancements that give the IS 250 a more aggressive appeal along with features that enhance driving dynamics.

The list of enhancements include new high-performance breaks, Bilstein shock absorbers and springs, sway bars, chassis braces, air intakes, clutch, short shift kit, a new exhaust, 19-inch wheels and an engine cover and spoilers.

According to John Toca, CEO of Lexus Australia, the accessories are currently being considered for sale in Australia to attract “younger buyers to the Lexus brand – and give Lexus a vehicle that aspiring IS F customers could step into.”
