Click above for gallery of the Wald IS-F

The extrovert of the entire Lexus lineup, the IS-F isn't light on visual or actual horsepower. Japan's Wald Tuning hasn't let that fact get in their way of releasing the Sports Line Black Bison bodykit. Wald's setup adds some visual aggression through an increase in the number of strakes and vents, as well as a trunklid spoiler. Doubtless, this get-up will add weight, possibly offering contradictory real-world performance from a vehicle that certainly looks like it should be fast. The amped-up visuals also help distract from the controversial fender gills, and the Black Bison package for the IS-F manages tack-on without being overly tacky. Well, maybe just a little tacky.

      Christ, it's like that girl with the smokin body but kinda odd facial features got headgear and then took up hockey. Blegh.

      Ya, it needs some extra tackiness to match the fake tailpipes is what you must mean Torrent.

      This car had potential to be real good but they blew it.
        • 6 Years Ago
        .....Ok anyways I'm trying to say the IS-F doesn't look aggressive enough to be a M3 ,C63, or RS4 Competitor, but this one does....Dang, so quick to judge......

      Uh, how do I say tired and ugly? How about "tired and ugly"?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Because if there was anything the IS-F was missing, it's more giant vents. What, no speed holes?

      Amateurs...

      i like it in a way. but i must say this is an odd step from Wald considering most of their stuff is subtle VIP style
      • 6 Years Ago
      Wow, they took a riced out car and made it even more ricey! Just look at those front chin spoilers and rear bumper vents.. and a wing?

      I'm pretty sure no Toyota fanboy (and I'm not one of 'em) would ever want to get caught driving one of those.

      Good Gawd that thang is uglier than a toot.

      autoblog: "The amped-up visuals also help distract from the controversial fender gills"

      Did you say "distract"?
      • 6 Years Ago
      I've got to say, this looks like a photochop and a half. Looks like crap... or more so, like the "Choose a Color" picture from the Lexus website.
        • 6 Years Ago
        It is a chop - these images are shown on the "Next Concept" portion of the Wald Japan website... It's a product that Wald is looking to release after they get around to making it...
      • 6 Years Ago
      wow...it actually CAN get uglier...
        • 6 Years Ago
        I agree. I normally like stuff that most people would consider 'riced out' but this thing just looks awful.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yeah, the car already had visual issues. This compounds them.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I agree. It's even more hideous than before. By the way, what does the F stand for? Fast and Furious??
        • 6 Years Ago
        +1 Wow an to make matters worst they do this. Not a fan of Lexus in general and this does not help even if the kit is not from them....Dam lol lol
      • 6 Years Ago
      HaHa, Looks like somthing they would use in Fast in the Furious now.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Conor,

        The purple paint on the FNF2 eclipse may draw attention away from that horrid spoiler, but I think I'd rather look at the spoiler than at the paint.
        • 6 Years Ago
        But somehow even uglier. I think the paint distracts you from the terrible body mods in F&F...

      All right stop collaborate and listen
      RICE is back with my brand new invention
      Something grabs a hold of me tightly
      Flow like a harpoon daily and nightly
      Will it ever stop yo I don't know
      Turn off the lights and I'll glow
      To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal
      Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle
      Dance go rush to the speaker that booms
      I'm killing your brain like a poisonous mushroom
      Deadly when I play a dope melody
      Anything less than the best is a felony
      Love it or leave it you better gain weight
      You better hit bull's eye the kid don't play
      If there was a problem yo I'll solve it
      Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it

      RICE RICE baby
