In-depth Look at Seibon Carbon’s Lexus IS350 F Sport
After giving you an exclusive look at our SEMA booth in the previous post, it’s time to give you the full scoop on our Lexus IS350 F Sport.
From the moment Seibon Carbon partnered up with Lexus USA and VIP Auto Salon it was evident what the theme of this build would be: tasteful and exhilarating. What exactly does tasteful and exhilarating mean? It meant building an attainable vehicle that not only looks good, but is also exciting to drive on any given day.
After weeks and weeks of planning, Seibon Carbon’s Lexus IS350 F Sport was ready to make its debut at SEMA 2013.
Every single carbon fiber piece, from front to rear end, was designed by Seibon Carbon with performance and elegant styling as a priority.
As an example, take the IS’ BT-style hood that features modest dual side heat release vents.
Other hood styles are also in production so look out for those!
Things start to get even more exciting when it comes to the carbon fiber lip kit. The lip kit is composed of Seibon Carbon’s OP-style front lip, TP-style side skirts, and RF-style rear lip. All of these pieces are light-weight and designed to flow with the IS’ lines.
For the rear end, Seibon Carbon decided to do something special to go along with the IS’ powerful front end. In the rear end, the IS350 featured our OEM-style trunk lid and SM-style rear spoiler. Most of the rear spoiler was painted white and the top left carbon fiber for an aggressive yet subtle look.
Our wheels of choice for this build were Volk Racing G27 Wheels by Rays. Pictures don’t give these wheels enough justice!
Carbon fiber heaven doesn’t end at the exterior. The IS featured a Seibon Carbon glove compartment trim, carbon fiber wrist rest, and carbon fiber window control cover! Other interior pieces like rear view mirror, carbon fiber shift knob, and GT Spec Pedals were provided by RAZO/ Carmate.
