     Beautiful. The custom-built “IS 250C” was commissioned by Lexus and built by 0-60 and Design Craft Fabrication.

    It’s based on the standard 2-door convertible model. And it’s something you could build yourself. We like that idea…

    Note the nicely subtle “0-60” decal on the leading edge of the hood.

    The only thing that would have made this even better, and more exclusive, would be to incorporate the IS-F powertrain.

    Very nice seats and door panels, although we’re surprised they didn’t incorporate a power rack.

    We would hope the roll hoop behind the drivers seat is something more substantial – and structural – than the tin-and-plastic poseur bars favored by Mustang enthusiasts.
