The 2006 Lexus IS 350 is a mid-class four-door saloon which was in production between 2005 and 2013, and was only sold in Japan and North America.
The second generation IS models didn't feature an estate body type but did feature a series of 4-door models and a 2-door hardtop convertible model. The IS 350 went on sale alongside the 250 model.
The 350 model features larger brake discs and callipers that are also used on the 430 model of the GS line. It is powered by a 3.5L V6 producing more than 300 horsepower. The IS 350 can be ordered with an all-wheel drive system.
Need for Speed: ProStreet
It is a decent tier 2 car, with manageable steering through corners, but might be difficult to control during hard cornering.
The engine of the IS 350 produces a decent amount of power and does not prevent the player from keeping up with other tier 2 cars. Its performance is best suited to Grip, thanks to its controllability.
Need for Speed: World
It accelerates significantly slower than most cars such as the Nissan 350Z and needs a longer time to reach its top speed, considering its nitrous only provides a moderate speed boost. With performance parts better than that of the Race series, this problem can be shrunk.
It is a good allround car, which is suitable for both racing and police chases. The Mazda MX-5 however, has a better handling and is a better car for race events.
