Lexus Debuts New F-Sport Accessories for GS, IS AW and IS C

While several other automakers used the 2009 Chicago Auto Show to introduce new and so-called “revolutionary” models, Lexus prefer to roll out a new line of F-Sport accessories for GS, IS AWD and IS Convertible. Most parts are especially aimed for overall performance (count here air intakes, suspension systems, exhausts and brake upgrades) and come with a 12-month warranty if installed by an authorized dealership.

"F-Sport Accessories offer Lexus owners the ability to customize their vehicles to the next level of performance," said Brian Bolain, Lexus national manager of marketing and lifecycle strategy. "Following last year's successful launch of accessories for the IS 250 and 350 sport sedans, it was natural to expand the F-Sport accessories lineup to other Lexus performance models."

Here are all the accessories along with a short description as provided by Lexus:

F-Sport 18 and 19-inch Forged Alloy Wheels - exclusively designed in a dark graphite finish, not only add an aggressive look to the exterior, but help enhance performance through increased strength and decreased weight
F-Sport Front Brake Upgrade - features six-piston fixed calipers and drilled cast-iron rotors with a patented internal-fin design mounted on anodized aluminum hubs
F-Sport Rear Brake Upgrade - uses four-piston fixed calipers and drilled cast-iron rotors
F-Sport Shock Absorber Set - offers sport-tuned suspension dampening without sacrificing ride quality
F-Sport Lowering Spring Set - lowers the vehicle approximately one inch in the front and rear for a more aggressive appearance and a lower center of gravity
F-Sport Sway Bar Set - includes larger diameter replacement front-and-rear sway bars that reduce body sway and flatten cornering
F-Sport Performance Exhaust System - features all stainless-steel construction with fully polished mufflers and double-wall exhaust tips
F-Sport Performance Air Intake - fully compatible with stock engine controls and is emission legal in all 50 states.
F-Sport Carbon Fiber Engine Cover - provides a high-tech appearance under the hood; it is a direct replacement for the original cover
F-Sport Performance ClutchSet - increases clamping force approximately 16 percent to handle higher torque capacity and provide improved feel
