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.
