Lexus has unveiled an aerodynamic and mechanical upgrade for Lexus IS-F called the Circuit Club Sport Package.
The Lexus IS-F Circuit Club Sport is developed in collaboration with the engineers from the Toyota Racing Department and inspired by the concept car displayed at the 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon.
The IS-F received a new front spoiler, rear diffuser and bonnet, all made from weight saving carbon fiber. To improve the downforce the Japanese installed a large rear wing. The IS-F is fitted with lightweight forged aluminium wheels, although a set of magnesium wheels is also available. The package comes also with a performance damper kit which offers two different settings that independently adjust the compression.

The Toyota Racing Development also installed a new limited-slip differential and braking kit. The engine of the aerodynamic and mechanical upgraded version of the Lexus IS-F has not been tweaked. The Lexus IS-F is powered by a 5.0 liter V8 which provides 423 horsepower and 505Nm of torque. The power is transfered to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The standard IS-F is able to accelerate from standstill to 100km/h in 4.7 seconds, and the electronically limited top speed is 270km/h. Details about the performance of the Circuit Club Sport has not been revealed.
