If you like the look of the IS-F, but can do without the grunt, this is the Lexus for you!

Revealed at Australiaís Sydney Motor Show, itís called the IS250 Sports Concept. And itís much closer to a production reality than its name suggests. The newcomer is based around the standard IS250, and it retains that modelís 2.5-litre V6 petrol powerplant. But just about everything else has been tweaked.

A new braking package is fitted, adding larger cross-drilled discs all-round for improved stopping power. The suspension is also upgraded to include Bilstein dampers and springs, while body flex is reduced thanks to anti-roll bars stiffening up the chassis.

A performance air intake and a sports exhaust help up power to 210bhp, while other modifications include a harder-wearing clutch and a short-shift kit for the manual gearbox. And to make it look more like the V8-engined IS-F, Lexus has added front and rear lip spoilers, chunky side skirts and 19-inch graphite grey alloys.

Bosses say the IS Sports Concept is designed to attract younger customers to the brand Ė but sadly not in the UK. For the moment at least, Lexus plans to release the saloon only in the US and Australia.

We need the IS350. The IS250 is only a competitor to the 325i really, and the IS220d is a competitor to the 320d. I reckon theyd sell more with an IS200 320i competitor and an IS350 330i/335i competitor.
