The Lexus IS 300 F Sport will become available in a new special edition called Black Line. Limited to 900 units for 2019, it entered production earlier this month and will arrive at dealers in March.
The Black Line treatment can be applied to both the rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions of the IS 300 F Sport. The first one is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo-four, with 241 hp (244 PS / 180 kW) and an eight-speed auto, while the second one uses a 260 hp (264 PS / 194 kW) 3.5-liter V6 and a six-speed automatic gearbox.
Subtle styling changes on the outside include the black side mirror casings and 18-inch split spoke wheels, with the 'black vapor chrome’ finish, a technology shared with the larger LS. Also, clients will have to choose between three exterior colors called Ultra White, Atomic Silver and Obsidian.

Toyota’s luxury car brand is offering the IS 300 F Sport Black Line with the red-accented black Nuluxe seats. Other interior features include red stitching on the seats, central console and armrests, as well as more red accents on each side of the center stack. Also part of the package is the black wood-trimmed steering wheel with distinctive black shades – said to have been created by a Japanese calligraphy shop.
Contributing to the wide list of standard equipment are the triple beam LED headlights and navigation system.
Pricing details haven’t been announced yet, but expect the Black Line models to cost more than the regular IS 300 F Sport, which starts from $41,605 with rear-wheel drive and $43,655 in AWD spec.
