Since its launch last year, the Lexus IS350--particularly in F Sport trim--has gotten its fair share of attention because of the Japanese luxury brand's newfound sporty approach. Some of the technologies found on the LFA supercar have trickled down to the IS, and the compact sedan has the looks to match the new aggressive attitude.
Producing Japanese vehicles is the norm for Tomica, so the IS350 F Sport was to be expected sooner rather than later. It is now, in fact, locally available and comes in trademark colors White Nova and Blue Metallic, although the shade of blue is darker than the actual factory color. Details worth scrutinizing are the F Sport honeycomb spindle grille, the separated daytime running lights, and the F Sport badge. When you take a closer look at both cars, you'll see that the execution of the window trim and taillights on the blue version is cleaner. The 1KN wheels enhance this Lexus toy car's sporty appearance.
These new Tomica releases are priced at P200 each and now come in sealed boxes.
