DOUBLE-JOINT MULTILINK FRONT SUSPENSION
An entirely new double-joint multilink suspension system was required to maintain the vehicle's low profile and accommodate the available 21-inch wheels*—while delivering exceptional agility, accuracy and immediate steering response. A Lexus first, die-cast aluminum shock towers weigh almost half as much as steel and provide nearly double the rigidity. Forged aluminum upper and lower arms help reduce unsprung weight.
MAGNESIUM PADDLE SHIFTERS
Each detail of the steering wheel is crafted to help improve the feel, enhance grip and reduce driver fatigue. Large magnesium paddle shifters with a meticulously engineered "click" feedback and outboard placement contribute to an intuitive, track-inspired driving experience.
