LA 2007: Lexus IS-F gets FiveAxified

We’ve berated the styling of the Lexus IS-F at length, but throw the Southern California team over at FiveAxis into the mix and we’re ready to drive it out the front doors of the LA Auto Show. The combination of a custom six-inch wide body kit, Satin Black Pearl Paint and Satin Bronze accents make this IS-F a sports sedan we’d be happy to roll in. The installation of FiveAxis’ own custom 20-inch wheels (20×8.5 in front and 20×10.5 out back), swathed in the same bronze hue as the ducting, diffusers and exhausts, ties everything together, and the lowered ride height provided by the Tein adjustable coilovers brings it all down to earth, literally.

Performance is aided by a custom exhaust system and what FiveAxis is calling a “Stage 2” engine package. What that means is beyond us, but we’re sure it’s got potential. Slowing those undefined extra horses is a set of Brembos at all four corners: 380 mm discs with six-piston calipers up front and 345 mm plates grabbed by two-piston calipers in the rear.
