While Lexus is celebrating its 25th anniversary in the U.S., the brand will be 10 years old in Japan in August 2015. To mark the occasion, Lexus has introduced a series of new F SPORT X Line models for the Japanese market that go on sale at Lexus dealers throughout Japan starting today. Lexus says these models “embody the ideals of the super sports car LFA and Lexus Sport RC F “F” concept.”
F SPORT X Line editions are offered on Lexus LS (shown above and below), GS, IS and CT models. While specific equipment varies, the overall theme is enhanced with sparkling white paint on the exterior highlighted by black spindle grilles, black fog lamp bezels, F SPORT alloy wheels and F SPORT rear bumper.
Interiors are fitted with sport seats accented with black and scarlet upholstery, F SPORT dimpled leather steering wheels and shift knobs.
Other features include pre-crash safety systems with millimeter-wave radar, cruise control with all-speed tracking function and brake control. Additional details are available on the Lexus consumer website in Japan.
