Lexus Announces the 2010 IS 350C F-Sport Special Edition

Lexus IS 350C F-Sport

Lexus just announced details about the new limited edition IS 350C F-Sport. With only 100 being produced, Lexus pulls a Scion Release Series-type move and makes a few changes to the stock IS 350C Convertible. So, what’s changed?

First up, it’s only available in two colors – Tungsten Pearl and Obsidian (not the cool orange color you see above, sadly.) That’s black and silver, respectively. You’d think being an F-Sport model would allow for some more exciting colors. Next up – it gets new 19-inch alloy wheels with high performance tires. Aesthetically, the IS 350C F-Sport gets a new F-Sport grille, a one-inch lowered ride height, and exterior badging.

Regarding performance – the special edition IS 350C gets firmer brakes, new sport shocks, and a sway bar. You could also consider the lowered ride height in the performance department.

Inside, the car gets embroidered floor mats, leather-wrapped shift knob, a numbered badge on the center console, and black leather-trimmed seats with blue stitching. The special edition also gets some options as standard.

Price comes in at $57,500, or $12,610 higher than the base IS 350C. To be one of the 100 folks getting this special edition, give your Lexus dealer a call for delivery later this month.

Hi! I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way
