Lexus shows off factory tuned metal at Tokyo Auto Salon

Lexus shows off factory tuned metal at Tokyo Auto Salon

Toyota’s luxury brand Lexus has been winning new fans at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Salon with a number of factory custom models. It’s good news for Toyota fans because both Toyota and Lexus are looking to gather more attention from tuners and the aftermarket industry for its latest models.

The custom Lexus vehicles shown in Toyko include the Lexus CT200h F Sport, Gazoo Racing’s Lexus LFA, the Lexus IS F Club Circuit Sports Racer and an IS F Club Performance Accessory range.

The most interesting and distinctive model was undoubtedly the Lexus IS F Club Circuit Sports Racer, or CCS-R, which is essentially a stripped out version of the regular performance sedan, with a number of its body panels being replaced by lighter carbon fibre pieces, and new front and rear spoilers fitted, as well as a frameless construction roll cage and polycarbonate windows. In the cabin more weight has been shaved off with a carbon fibre dashboard, centre console and door trims.

Mechanical modifications on the IS F CCS-R include a racing suspension set-up, upgraded brakes, cooling system and exhaust. There’s also a new LSD and forged alloys wrapped in slicks.

The IS F CCS-R is one mean track demon, no doubt. Check out images of all the Lexus vehicles on display in the gallery below.
