ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

Lexus will roll out the IS 350C F Sport in the next few weeks, announcing pricing for the performance-oriented convertible Friday. The luxury brand says that the ultra-exclusive convertible will start at $55,995 including destination – a whopping $9,300 above a regular IS 350C. But the IS350 C F Sport is no regular model.

Lexus says the IS350C F Sport will be extremely exclusive, with just 175 units slated to be built – not even enough for each dealer to get one. While F Sport versions of the IS 250 and IS 350 sedan will be relatively common, it's unlikely that two IS 350C F Sport owners will ever pass by one another on the road.

But it's not just exclusivity that helps the IS 350C F Sport justify its high price of admission. Upgrades over the standard IS 350C include Bilstein shocks to help improve handling, lowered suspension for a more aggressive look, larger wheels, and a sway bar to reduce body roll. Plus, the IS 350C F Sport is loaded, coming with a laundry list of standard features from a navigation system, Bluetooth, XM and a reversing camera to high-intensity Xenon headlights and LED running lights.

"The F Sport Special Edition builds on the IS 350C and takes the fun of the convertible up another notch," said Mark Templin, Lexus division group vice president and general manager. "The racing-inspired F Sport accessories on this car were precision-engineered specifically for this vehicle, allowing us to provide performance without compromise."

Only available in white or black, the IS 350C F Sport will wear a special 2011 badge signifying its exclusivity. Inside, all models will feature two-tone black and red leather upholstery with red stitching. Lexus says that unlike the sedan, it has no plans to build an IS 250C F Sport, meaning that all F Sport convertibles will carry the model's muscular 306-horsepower 3.5-liter V6.
