At the ongoing Australian Motor Show in Sydney, Lexus has unveiled a new version of its IS 250 sports sedan called the Sports Concept.

The Sports Concept is a go-fast version of the standard model made for the show. The car has been outfitted with 19″ wheels hiding cross-drilled two-piece rotors clamped by six-pot calipers up front and four-pots in the rear, painted trademark Lexus F blue. It also sports Billstein shocks and springs, sway bars and chassis braces, a larger air intake and cat-back exhaust, a new clutch and short-shift kit, a carbon fiber engine cover and an assortment of spoilers and skirts.

The revised breathing system draws out a 1.5 percent increase in output from the 2.5-liter V6 for a total of about 213hp. The additions are currently being considered by Lexus for the Australian and NZ markets.
