Lexus IS F TRD CCS Concept performance kit available to order

August 26, 2011

Lexus has revealed that it will be releasing the Lexus IS F TRD Circuit Club Sport Concept bodykit onto the market, at least in Japan. The aggressive kit was first revealed on the Lexus IS F at the 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon.

Apart from the bright orange paintwork and the rear wing, the Lexus IS F CCS Concept on show featured a subtle yet sporty performance aero kit with various carbon fibre trimming details and downforce-aiding enhancements. TRD is now offering the kit for the production Lexus IS F.

It features a carbon fibre front spoiler with additional corner extensions, new air intakes in a revised front bumper bar, and a lighter weight bonnet (whether it is made from carbon hasn’t been confirmed) with unique black heat-extracting vents.

The Lexus IS F TRD CCS kit also comes with a huge carbon fibre rear wing and an aggressive new rear diffuser setup in between the traditional double stacked, quad outlet exhaust tips.

Since most of the revisions are made from carbon fibre, TRD also fits a new set of dark ‘shadow’ forged aluminium or magnesium wheels.

The Lexus IS F TRD CCS kit doesn’t only add cosmetic changes, it also includes the option of two suspension kits – one giving user adjustability options – as well as a titanium exhaust muffler. Carbon fibre interior trimming can also be specified.

Perhaps without the rear wing it could go for that more discreet aero look, and be marketed as a Lexus IS F ‘competition pack’ to go up against the BMW M3 Competition. What do you think?

Stay tuned for updates as to whether the Lexus IS F TRD kit will be made available Down Under, and if so, at what cost.
