Lexus LFA and IS-F

Since its inception in 2000, the hand-built Lexus LFA has continuously set a new standard for the F Performance lineup as the first Lexus supercar. The 4.8 liter, V10 engine demonstrates its breathtaking performance and the clean, muscular style of a truly desired vehicle. Designed with elements of Japanese influence, the impressive style is modeled by pure, incisive simplicity, intriguing elegance, and flawless expectations in mind. The relentless power and Lexus finesse makes the LFA a world class supercar. CEC’s staggered (9”x21” Front, 11” x 21” Rear) c882 Forged is the ultimate wheel to compliment the light weight carbon fiber body of the LFA. The ultra lightweight monoblock build of the c882 Forged is designed specifically for exotic vehicles including the LFA. The sleek split five spoke design will accentuate every curve and angle of the LFA.

Lexus F logo is inspired by the prominent Fuji Speedway, which offers one of the longest straight-aways measuring at almost a mile of the total 2.84 mile track. Both the LFA and the IS-F are said to be born in the Fuji International Speedway. The vehicles who wear the Lexus F badge indicate genuine capabilities of a true performance vehicle.

After rigorous testing on the Nurburgring and the Fuji Speedway, the Lexus IS-F model has become the first production model to earn the F badge. It seems that badge is the only similarity between the Lexus IS-F and LFA models. Made to compete with the best of class in Europe, this high-performance sedan provides the perfect balance of power and control.

With track speeds up to 170 mph, the 5.0 liter, V8 engine displays Lexus durability, innovation, and luxury making it a true performance vehicle. To match the performance of the Lexus IS-F, the staggered (8.5”x 20” Front, 10”x20” Rear) c882 is the ideal wheel. Made to replicate the styling of the c882 Forged, the c882 will add to the bold, aggressive style of the IS-F.

With the CEC c882 and c882 forged, the LFA and IS-F have bypassed the expectations of the Lexus performance line, leading the way for upcoming performance vehicles to come.
