Fox Marketing/Artisan Lexus IS-F

This year at the Specialty Equipment Market Association Show, Japanese manufacturer Lexus is presenting new project cars like the IS F high performance sedan and the F-Sport products. Five Axis has turned its attention to the Lexus GS 460. Project GS will debut inside the Lexus SEMA booth on Tuesday, on the 4th of November. The project also returns to SEMA with a newly modified V8 engine filling the engine bay. Four unique IS F project cars created by these independent builders will be on display at the Lexus space. Each team is taking their own performance and design approach, with some focused on increased track performance and others making sure their rides are even more fun on the street, as well as the track. The carmaker will also present the LX 570 developed by ICON 4x4 Design. This concept actually brings a stealthy and function look augmented by several performance upgrades. For the interior, the carmaker has offered air conditioning and a lot of other accessories. The IS 350 is equipped with F-Sport accessories and concept body kit. The track will be open to Lexus cars during normal show hours beginning Wednesday, on the 5th of November at 9.00 am. It will close on Thursday. Following on the booth, we can see Lexus strapping an IS F to a chassis dyno for full throttle runs through a simulated 1/4 mile. The model uses an 8-speed Sport Direct Shift transmission to transfer all the output to the wheels. So that you know, the IS F video racing simulators where drivers can pit themselves against one another is something that you should not miss. Here, helmets are optional. These are all the details on the even so far.
