Japanese-Spec 2014 Lexus IS F Sport Spiced Up With TRD Parts

When it comes to the 2014 Lexus IS, Japan is one step ahead of the U.S. Toyota Racing Development has announced that visual and performance parts are available to enhance the 2014 Lexus IS F Sport.

Japanese consumers can toughen up their sport sedan with a TRD body kit that adds new side skirts and aggressive air inlets on the front bumper. Out back, the rear bumper adds an integrated diffuser, rear spoiler, and quad sport exhaust tips. Forged aluminum wheels measuring 19 inches also add more pizzazz to the IS F Sport's visual appearance.

As for performance, a retuned suspension pack alters the Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) for more track-focused handling. Engine output remains the same. The TRD parts for customers in Japan add to what's already offered on the F Sport model, which includes a unique grille and bumper, sports seats, and an LFA-inspired instrument cluster. No word yet on if we'll ever see similar TRD parts available for the U.S.-spec IS F Sport, but a Lexus rep did tell us "accessories  for the 2014 IS are being studied."
