With summer here, this all-new Lexus is the perfect toy. Power, luxury and topless are the words to describe this incredible machine from the carmaker whose focus is quality, style and speed.
With a 3.5-liter, 60-inch V6 that nets 306 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque, this vehicle is powerful in all ways. Fuel economy is 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway, which helps to justify the practicality of this hardtop/no-top sports car. The three-piece retractable hardtop operates with numerous electric motors and sensors to ease the transition, making this truly convertible. When the top is up, the car is as airtight as the IS sedan; when down, it is aerodynamic bliss at all speeds. Performance is what distinguishes the F Sport, with its optimized steering system and a special sport-tuned suspension that exhilarates any driver on any road.
The styling is stellar, with an F Sport grille, aggressive 18-inch wheels and a number of exclusive body colors to choose from. The interior is Lexus at its best, with uncompromised use of design for space and even a spacious back-seat area. Front-seat comfort is also about performance, surrounded with wood trim, leather appointments and technology and sound that impresses. The navigation system, with its 7-inch high-resolution multimedia display, means everything is at the driver’s fingertips. From communication and audio to navigation and climate, this fully equipped topless cabin is a comfort zone that travels.
This top-of-the-line model (there is also a 250 version) has many options available to bolster appearance and performance, but the F Sport package is meant to perform. With split-five-spoke alloy wheels with the dark Superchrome finish and the sports suspension and EPS tuning, taking curves and looking good come together. The heated and ventilated front seats means leave the top down on cool or hot days. Design features make this model stand out, with the F Sport front seats, steering wheel, shift knob and the front fender badge. A front-lip spoiler, silver metallic interior trim and aluminum sport pedals and paddles bring this all together and truly define this as a sports car.
