Lexus has previewed the first of its SEMA-bound cars, created in collaboration with tuning partner Five Axis.
As the tuning world readies itself for SEMA 2012, modified machines are being previewed at increasingly regular intervals, with the latest announcement heralding from Lexus and its tuning partner Five Axis. This year's project is based on the 2013 Lexus LS 460 F Sport model, which gets an aggressive body kit that is an evolution of the striking kit revealed last year on the GS 350 F Sport. Five Axis has added new lines, large fender vents and a rear bumper with integrated slotted diffuser.
Finished in custom matte titanium with touches of pewter grey on the grille, aero aids and exhaust tips, the LS has been lowered, its suspension stiffened with an AirRunner TC-5 suspension kit, and it rides on a set of the tuner's own 22-inch alloys. No engine mods were noted so assume the 4.6-liter V8 is still good for 386 horsepower and 367 pound-feet of torque. Expect to hear more from Lexus over the coming days as SEMA 2012 is set to kick off on October 30.
