Lexus IS F CCS-R Race Car
Car Trends
Lexus has reveals the IS F CCS-R race car, ahead of its debut at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on July 8, 2012
The Pikes Peak Hill Climb is an annual automobile and motorcycle hillclimb to the top of the Pikes Peak mountain in Colorado. The track measures 12.42 miles with over 156 turns and climbs 4,720 feet.
The car overall weight is 693 lbs. lighter than the stock model thanks to lightweight doors, exterior and interior carbon fiber parts, lightweight bucket seats and other .
the Pikes Peak version is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine developing 416 hp and 371 lb-ft of torque, connected to an eight-speed transmission and a limited-slip diff at the back. That combined with the lightweight body should make it a helluva lot faster than the base car.
Inside, the car is also stripped down to cut weight. The dashboard is replaced with carbon fiber, and there are lightweight seats. In total, it weighs in at 3,087 lbs, which is 693 fewer than the production version.
