Hot on the heels of the official production debut of the next-generation 2014 Lexus IS sport sedan, the inevitable even hotter IS-F high-performance variant has been spotted by CarPix in full camouflage. But here’s the completely unexpected best part: the new IS-F is a two-door, hardtop coupe, a body style Lexus has never offered before on any of its models save for the six-figure, ultra-exclusive LFA supercar.

The 2011 Lexus IS 350C F Sport Special Edition (we know) will be available for a starting price of $55,120. In its ode to exclusivity, the new Lex has hereby challenged BMW’s venerable Z4 sDrive35is to an all-out suffix smack-down. But unlike the Bimmer, it will only be limited to 175 units. For the entire United States.
The Special Edition will feature a bevy of F Sport accessories, including beautiful 19-inch forged dark graphite wheels shod with sticky Michelin Pilot Sport tires. The suspension will feature taut lowering springs (1.0 inch lower than stock) coupled with upgraded dampers developed by Bilstein. Additionally, a larger diameter rear sway bar will also be implemented to reduce unwanted body roll, which will kee the IS350C nice and flat in high-speed turns.
Interior details will feature black and red semi-aniline leather-trimmed seats with high-contrast [read: cool] stitching.
Two distinct exterior colors will be offered: Starfire Pearl (white) or Obsidian (black).
The 2011 Lexus IS350C F-Sport Special Edition will be available next month (March 2011). Our guess is that they will be sold out by then.
