    TAS 2010 : Lexus IS-F CCS Concept

    Tucked away towards the back of Toyota’s booth at the 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon was this IS-F CCS Concept that looks to be a lightweight version of the performance-minded sedan. Not much details could be found on this CCS Concept, but we definitely fell in love with the bright orange shade and carbon fiber accents. The hood, trunk, and spoiler were all constructed on carbon fiber while the front bumper and side skirts got a mild trim accent and the rear bumper its own carbon fiber diffuser. A slightly different exhaust system also appears to be a part of the package, as do the light weight wheels. It also doesn’t take an expert to see that this IS-F features a significantly lowered suspension.

    Looking at the IS-F CCS Concept, we can’t help but think of the equally-orange BMW M3 GTS, which debuted recently in Germany as a track-only club racer. Is Lexus thinking of offering a similar model, or perhaps a light-weight street legal version? We certainly hope so.

    High Demand for Lexus LF-A

    In the three months after its release the Lexus LF-A received a number of buyers interested in the purchase of the supercar greater than the limited production run of only 500 examples. Even despite its massive $375,000 price tag! For those people it is a waiting game up to mid-March. At that time stamp the 500 cars will be allocated across the 56 countries where they are on sale, with confirmed orders with deposits to be invited from the end of May.

    The LF-A is powered by a mid-front mounted 4.8 liter V10 engine that produces 552bhp for 0 to 62mph in just 3.7 seconds. Hand built in strong but ultra-lightweight carbon fibre material, it represents the pinnacle of advanced automotive design and engineering from a brand which never developed a supercar before.

    Something Wicked: Redux

    Remember the "Something wicked this way comes" GS ad campaign in the late 90's? Here's a car that pulls some of the most attractive dominant and recessive genes from the Lexus pool: hybrid power and sinister presence. Behold the all-new Lexus LF-Ch.

    As the latest concept hybrid vehicle from Lexus, the LF-Ch pairs driving enjoyment with a sustainable focus. It offers visually striking styling, premium features, an innovative drivetrain with low emissions and impressive fuel economy in a sporty yet versatile five-door package.

    The exterior of the LF-Ch concept exudes strength and simplicity with a wide stance, broad and high-shoulders as well as an arching roofline that flows into the rear spoiler. An aggressive grille with a wide front bumper and air dam gives the hybrid concept a powerful personality in keeping with its dynamic lines.

    Inside, designers created an elegant cabin that is contemporary and functional with metal and leather trim. The LF-Ch has four sport seats that feature trim lighting along the cushion's edge for cabin illumination. Rear passengers can enjoy headrest-mounted iPhone® docking capability for audio and video entertainment.
