The Lexus IS 500 F Sport Performance Launch Edition Is Limited to Just 500 Units
Last month, luxury Japanese manufacturer Lexus unveiled the 2022 IS 500 F Sport Performance, and now the marque has given North America a good more special version of this anticipated hot saloon — the Launch Edition model.
While it’s name could also be longwinded — IS 500 F Sport Performance Launch Edition — the facts, stats, and numbers are straight to the purpose . Underneath the hood may be a five-liter V8 producing 472 HP and 395 lb.-ft. of torque, which is that the same as standard, but the facility isn’t what’s special about this Launch Edition version.
Instead, Lexus has put attention on exclusivity. Only 500 of those models are going to be built for the North American market, each featuring a singular serialized Launch Edition badge inside and an exterior that’s finished within the brand-new shade of “Incognito.” Additionally, a group of 19-inch split seven-spoke forged alloy “Matte Black” BBS wheels from the IS F SPORT Dynamic Handling Package are fitted as standard, while back inside you’ll find a number of latest treatments.
The interior is roofed in two-tone black and grey Ultrasuede that trims the seats, door accents, and center console. A leather-wrapped heated wheel has been customized with tree wood details and a black F SPORT Performance badge, while a replacement Launch Edition startup animation on the instrument meter also will be displayed upon starting the car up.
For now, Lexus has not divulged pricing but you’ll expect it cost a good chunk quite the quality IS 500 F Sport Performance model. The Launch Edition is predicted to reach dealers in North America this fall.
