SEMA patrons will have one more tricked-out vehicle to feast their collective eyes on this year, with American tuner Fox Marketing and Artisan (FMA) busily working on one of the numerous modified Lexus IS-Fs, expected to make an appearance at this year's show.
While the visuals are certainly eye-catching, the stand-out feature for many will be what's under the hood, with FMA expecting a scintillating 600hp (478kWs) at the wheels from the finished project.
The 5.0-litre V8 has been kitted out with JE pistons, Crower rods, an FMA exhaust and a suitable amount of boost from a custom made twin-turbo setup. A Mishimoto radiator will take care of cooling duties, while the team work on tuning the IS-F are en-route to an expected 600 ponies at the wheels.
The striking visuals are largely due to the fitment of a custom body kit, featuring new front and rear bumpers, integrated side skirts and impressively smooth flared rear guards. Massive 20-inch wheels, wrapped in equally monstrous Toyo T1R tyres, 255/35R20 front and 305/30R20 rear, compliment the Glasurit Sunset Orange paintwork to give the IS-F a highly distinctive persona.
The SEMA show traditionally features a plethora of highly modified vehicles, and despite the enormous competition, we expect the Fox Marketing and Artisan Lexus IS-F to attract its share of admirers - and who could blame them?
