The Lexus IS 300 (also known as Toyota Altezza in Japan) is a mid-class four-door saloon/sedan from Lexus, which was offered with a 3.0L inline-six engine (2JZ-GE) and produced between 1998 and 2005 for the North American market.

The IS 300 was the fastest model of the XE10 series. For the Japanese market, the 3.0 litre inline-six was only available in Toyota branded Gita estate/wagon models.

Need for Speed: Most WantedEdit

The Lexus IS 300 appears in Need for Speed: Most Wanted with a price tag of 27,000 and is unlocked from the beginning of the title.

The IS 300 has the best handling of all initial career cars but lacks in terms of speed. It is still a good candidate for Junkman performance parts due to a low weight and its consequently great handling.

A dark gold IS 300 is driven by Blacklist Racer # 14 - Taz. It features a widened body kit and a pronounced flame vinyl colour scheme. Players can obtain it via a pink slip marker.

Need for Speed: CarbonEdit

The Lexus IS 300 appears in Need for Speed: Carbon as a Tier 1 Tuner class car and can be only unlocked through a reward card. It is featured as a stock and modified variant. Both are only available in Quick Race and multiplayer.

In the PlayStation 2 release, it is only drivable in the bronze tier Canyon Duel of the Challenge Series.

Need for Speed: WorldEdit

The Lexus IS 300 was made available in Need for Speed: World on August 14th, 2012 as a Tier 1 car. Since August 22nd, 20120, it has been featured as a D class car.

Compared to the Lexus IS 350, it has a worse handling and top speed (127 mph/205 kmh), but compensates these traits with a significantly stronger nitrous boost. It also has a weak acceleration, comparable to that of the Toyota Corolla GT-S and good pursuit durability.
