Written by tonks on October 2, 2007

Lexus IS-F ‘Special Build’Lexus is known for spreading some holiday cheer by giving the gift of special edition cars. Of course they want you to buy that gift for yourself or as a gift to others. This year is no different they have teamed up with Neiman Marcus and created the Lexus IS-F ‘Special Build’.

The IS F is the fastest production car Lexus has ever built. It’s so fast that the Neiman Marcus Special Build Sedan includes a personalized half-day of pro-driver training compliments of the Skip Barber Racing School. Owners will have the chance to take the high-performance vehicle to the limit learning real racing skills and experiencing what the IS F can do on and off the road.

Delivering more than 400 horsepower from its 5.0-liter V8, the IS F can go from 0 to 60 in under 4.9 seconds. It has the world’s first eight-speed Sport Direct Shift gearbox and a specially engineered Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) system featuring a high-performance sport mode. They also come with an Obsidian black paint job, perforated leather seats with white stitching and an “F” logo embossed into the headrests.

There will only be 50 of these exclusive ‘Special Builds’ made and because of that you can naturally assume that they will come at a steep price. Those who pay $68,000 for this sweet ride also get a chance to attend a complimentary course from Skip Barber(travel and lodging is included in that deal). So on October 18th get ready to buy the perfect gift and don’t forget to top it with a bow.
