Lexus IS 250 Gets New Racing Exhaust From Vivid Racing

Even the low-spec Lexus IS 250 can be awesome if you know what to combine. The F Sport pack is a must if you want it to look cooler, while a performance exhaust will make sure you’ll make your presence felt even before arriving.

While Lexus will offer you the F Sport pack, you can check out Vivid Racing’s offer for a high performance exhaust. They recently built a catback from scratch for the IS 250, following to go into production soon.

Until then, you can check out the video bellow to see how the exhaust looks and how lively that V6 sounds after freeing up its tubes.

The IS 250 is powered by a 2.5-liter V6 making 204 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. The 0 to 60 mph is done in 7.7 seconds but that might get improved by mounting a sport exhaust, which may unleash around 5-7 horses more.

Whatever you do, keep enjoying Lexus’ smallest V6 while you can. The automaker recently revealed an inline-four turbocharged 2-liter which makes 238 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. And something tells us that the days of ye olde 2.5-liter are counted.
