2011 Lexus IS- F Club Circuit Sports Racer

Filed under:

One of the most impressive vehicles displayed at the Tokyo Auto Salon was the Lexus IS F Circuit Club Sports Racer (CCS-R), and if anyone thinks it looks a bit familiar then they would be right. Seen as a concept at last year s Tokyo Auto Salon, the CCS-R is making its comeback in a more production ready form.

The Lexus IS-F Circuit Club Sports Racer upgrades the standard sports car by changing all of its major components like the exterior, interior, and engine. It has been given the full on carbon fiber treatment and has also received a power boost to boot! Since no racer is complete without an additional racing overhaul, Lexus has made sure that the IS-F received all of the necessary components to keep the vehicle safely on the track, including a unique frame-less construction roll cage.

All in all, this version of the Lexus IS-F Circuit Club Sports Racer hasn t changed all that much from the concept that was shown last year, but we still can t help but ogle it just as we did last year.

Exterior and Interior

For the exterior, the CCS-R adds a arbon hood, trunk lid, front fender, front and rear spoiler, roof ventilator, and polycarbonate window.

The interior also received an impressive update. It gets a carbon fiber dash, center console, door trim, and package tray trim, as well as a six point seat belt and a short diameter steering wheel with paddle shift.

The car is performance-engineered, too, with a racing suspension, brakes, cooling and exhaust, plus a mechanical limited-slip differential and forged alloys shod with slick tires. And finally there is a unique frameless construction roll cage. And if you add that impressive orange exterior pain combined with the black carbon hood you will surely get an IS-F that has never been seen before.

Well, except for the concept displayed at last year s Tokyo show of course.

The Lexus IS-F CCS-R carries the same engine as in the standard sports car — a 5.0 Liter V8 to be exact — but thanks to the added carbon fiber, the car now only weighs 3,086lbs. This weight reduction allows the car to produce 417hp and 373 lb-ft of torque.

When Can I Get One

Considering this is the second year the Lexus IS-F CCS-R has been featured at the Tokyo Motor Show, we would bet money that a racing version of the IS-F is somewhere along Lexus future. Heck, considering not much changed from last year to this year, we wouldn t be surprised if this exact setup made it to the track. Here s to hoping!
