March 15, 2010

TORRANCE, CA - Lexus announced the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $57,500 for the 2010 IS 350C F-Sport Special Edition which will arrive at dealerships later this month. The MSRP does not include a delivery, processing and handling fee of $875.

"The F-Sport Special Edition builds on the IS 350C and takes the fun of the convertible up another notch," said Mark Templin, Lexus Division group vice president and general manager.  "The F-Sport accessories on this car were precision engineered specifically for this vehicle, allowing us to provide sport-tuned performance without sacrificing ride quality."

This 2010 IS 350C Special Edition was designed to engage driving enthusiasts with the performance and styling enhancements from the F-Sport accessories line.  This IS 350C, only available in two colors, Tungsten Pearl or Obsidian, can be distinguished from other IS convertibles by the following F-Sport equipment:

  • Newly designed 19-inch forged alloy wheels with a wheel lock set and Michelin Pilot Sport 225/35ZR19 tires in the front and 255/35ZR19 tires in the rear;
  • Front and rear brake upgrade for a firmer pedal feel and enhanced fade resistance;
  • New and unique F-Sport grille not previously available;
  • Shock set developed in cooperation with Bilstein;
  • Lowering springs that reduce the ride height approximately one-inch in the front and rear;
  • Sway bar set that helps reduce body roll and provide flatter cornering;
  • Embroidered floor mats with F-Sport logo;
  • Leather-wrapped shift knob with F-Sport logo;
  • And exterior badging and an individually numbered badge on the center console complete the uniqueness of this vehicle.
