Lexus IS-F Racing Concept

Tucked away at the Tokyo tuner show, details on this track version of Lexus's M3 rival remain sketchy. All we know is that it looks truly mean.

The massive front aero kit and rear spoiler hint that the racing IS-F could compete in Germany's DTM series. But the word on the show floor is that the car is nothing more than the pet project of IS-F chief engineer Yukihiko Yaguchi. As pet projects go, it's a good 'un.

That's the same series the awesome GT-R racer we saw earlier this month will enter, although the IS-F will compete in the GT300 class, not the Nissan's GT500 division.

Best of all, the IS-F GT300 is likely to be mid-engined, a revelation that Super GT officials have described as 'crazy' and we describe as a thoroughly good idea.
