SEMA 2008: 0-60 Magazine’s Lexus IS-F

Lexus’ official car guide for SEMA 2008 was released today, and showcases six newly modified Lexus vehicles — and rather than post them all up in a lump, I’m going to take it one at a time, starting with 0-60 Magazine’s Modifed IS-F:

With track performance a common theme among IS F builders, 0-60 Magazine ups the ante on their IS F project with a supercharger to tease out another load of horses from the big V8.  Carbon fiber body components reduce weight while lowering the center of gravity and a custom roll cage adds stiffness and protection.  A beefy brake-upgrade kit was added to balance the performance equation.

  1. looks all right, except the CF parts are made by Seibon (don’t need to elaborate on their quality, except that they aren’t at the same caliber as Lexus).
