SEMA 2009: Lexus Rocks It Old School With 1,000-hp IS300

Looking more like something we might have seen at SEMA in 2002, Lexus has decided to showcase David Huang’s wild IS300 along with its collection of custom IS Cs, a TRD GS and the new LFA Supercar. Making about as much power as two LFA’s, Huang has dubbed the car the IS1000, due to its supposed 1,000-hp output. The modifications list would no doubt be as long as a dictionary but this gist of it is a 2JZ-GTE engine (from a Supra or Aristo) with just one massive turbo. Other modifications include some stunning 20-inch Work VS-XX wheels, Endless brakes, Zeal coilovers and a selection on Kansai and HKS goodies.

Owner David Huang has poured over $100,000 into this IS300, to transform it into the quintessential SEMA show car.
