 Lexus IS-F: Wald Sports Line Black Bison Edition New Photos
Wald Lexus IS-F Sports Line Black Bison Edition

New crystal clear photos have emerged, featuring the much talked about Lexus IS-F Sports Line Black Bison Edition. Created by tuners Wald International, the car debuted at the Tokyo Auto Salon earlier this month.

As a stock vehicle, the IS-F is interesting even for people who don't like the brand. Lexus delivers the vehicle with a 5.0-liter V8 engine with 417 horsepower, and 317 ft-lb of torque. A two-stage air intake system lets the engine breathe, while the eight-speed sport direct-shif transmission allows manual upshifts in about one-tenth of a second. The new transmission even blips the throttle when the driver downshifts, giving solid control over the car. It is even designed to look a bit more sporty than most other vehicles under the luxe Toyota label.

Here is where Wald takes over. They built a custom body kit, comprised of a front spoiler, rear wing, and rear diffuser, all from a lacquered, wet-look carbon fiber. New side vents are also built in. Wheels are upgraded to Wald's very own Mahora 3-piece 20-inchers, in a dark, almost gun-metal finish. In the end, Wald wanted to show off a car that really looked like it had the power Lexus built into their IS-F.

Ummm, no. VW, Audi, BMW, Citroen, Peugeot and many more would probably all rather see their company's go up in flames before allowing an American corporation to own them.

You'd have to catch your breath mid way of telling someone what kind of car you own, assuming the other person didn't get bored listening to your ramblings and walk away before you finished.

I don't think saying that Lexus has no style would be accurate. Every car has a "style" some borrowed and some not, its just a matter of what an individual likes. If you don't like lexus that's fine sugar-ray but don't say "only americans are stupid enough to buy them" because not every american is rushing into dealerships for an IS let alone the IS-F.

Dont know why always people accuse Mercedes for "started to copy lexus", let me tell you something if i copyed billie jean by Michael Jackson, lets say in 1996, and sold platina, would Michael Jackson be copying me if he rereleased his track with modifications now? and yes ..lexus is ugly and no style or elegance whatsoever....only americans are stupid enough to buy them,

You're apparently stupid enough to make gross generalizations about specific nationalities.

Apart from being too low, this IS seems pissed off for some reason. Were the designers angry for some reason. But still a little overdone, but nice package

Looks nice, but it's way too low to be practical at all.
