JDM Lexus IS Now Available With F Sport Mode Black III Visual Package

Founded in 1989, the Lexus brand sells the most vehicles in the U.S. market. Its parent company introduced Lexus to the Japanese market in 2005, but nevertheless, the premium- and luxury-oriented market sells much fewer vehicles in the Land of the Rising Sun. However, that hasn’t stopped Lexus from rolling out two special editions for the IS for 2023.
