Debuting along side the production GS350 F-Sport today at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas is a wildly modified version of the very same car, built by long-time Lexus tuning partner Five Axis. Painted Glacier White it’s in stark contrast to the subtle silver-gray of the factory F-Sport model on display. The real drama, however,… Continue Reading...
With plenty of dressed-up tuner cars on display at the Lexus booth at this year’s SEMA Show, the real star is the GS350 F-Sport. It might not have any power adders, but with 306-hp and a 0-60 time of 5.7 seconds it doesn’t really need any anyway. More than just bolt-on styling components (although it… Continue Reading...
As promised Lexus will debut its new F-Sport GS350 model at the upcoming SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

Included in the package are 19-inch F-sport wheels measuring 8-inches up front and 9-inches in the rear… Continue Reading...
Hot on the heels of their Tokyo Auto Salon showing, Wald International has released a Black Bison Edition styling package for one of Japan’s top luxury sedans, the LS series from Lexus.

Lexus is a brand desperate to grow its appeal among younger buyers and while the new CT200h hybrid hatchback might be more of a European-targeted vehicle, apart from the IS series, it’s easily the most attractive car to the Gen-X and Gen-Y crowd from the Toyota luxury brand here in North America. To help convey… Continue Reading...

You know the saying, “as American as apple pie”? Well, in Qatar they say, “as Qatar-ian(?) as a modified SUV.” OK, maybe not, but wealthy Middle-Easterners really know how to blow their oil-soaked money: like on the Invader L60. Japanese tuning house Invader recently unveiled its new L60 truck at the Qatar Motor Show, based… Continue Reading...
While Lexus does already offer a selection of F-Sport branded TRD bits for the IS-F, the automaker now seems poised to deliver a selection of track-focused goodies for those who want to take their 5.0-liter V8 sedan around the track. Looking nearly identical to the IS-F Club Circuit Sport concept from last yea’s Tokyo Auto… Continue Reading...
If the SEMA Show stands for anything, it’s that the aftermarket industry is as much about style as it is about performance. That being said, Lexus has decided to showcase its lineup of hybrid models at the world’s largest aftermarket expo next week. Several tuners will will take part, including Fox Marketing, EST Styling and… Continue Reading...
Fox Marketing has built some impressive Lexus projects in the past for SEMA, including their IS350C from last year’s show, and they teased us with their luxury sedan LS600hL project earlier this year. Now we’ve got some sexy snaps of the car ahead of its SEMA reveal. On the exterior, the luxury Japanese sedan sports… Continue Reading...
For the first time ever, Lexus will offer a selection of F-Sport performance accessories for a hybrid model – the CT200h.

There are a few names in the aftermarket industry known for building impressive show vehicles and one of the best-known is Fox Marketing.

This weekend is Formula Drift’s Round 3 event at Wall Speedway in Wall, New Jersey. So naturally people are already sneaking in photos from what’s being unloaded in the pits. One of the new vehicles uncovered is Ryuji Miki’s new drift Lexus SC430. And while we’re surprised by how physically unappealing it is, we’re excited… Continue Reading...
Lexus is looking to build up their F-Sport lineup in a similar manner to how AMG and the M Division add a performance boost to Mercedes and BMW.

Tucked away towards the back of Toyota’s booth at the 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon was this IS-F CCS Concept that looks to be a lightweight version of the performance-minded sedan. Not much details could be found on this CCS Concept, but we definitely fell in love with the bright orange shade and carbon fiber accents…. Continue Reading...

Lexus shipped out three IS Cs to different shops and organizations, letting them be as creative as they liked. A fourth IS C was built by Lexus’s in-house F-sport performance division. First… Continue Reading...

Making about as much power as two LFA’s, Huang has dubbed the car the IS1000, due to its… Continue Reading...
Unlike the past two years, Lexus will have a more low-key presence at the SEMA Show for 2009.

Last year the automaker distributed four of its IS-F sedans to four different companies (Fox Marketing/Artisan Performance, MotorworldHype,… Continue Reading...
Fox Marketing is back up to its old tricks again, as the company is now part-way through building a turbocharged, wide body Lexus IS350C for the 2009 SEMA Show. Fox built a burn copper IS-F for SEMA 2008 and so this new model gets a metallic green pain job called Carizzma Foxy Green. Once completed,… Continue Reading...
Mercedes tuner Lorinser has just announced that it is now tuning Lexus vehicles and the first of the Japanese Mercs to get a German makeover is the flagship LS sedan.
