This was a quick spin in the new Lexus IS-F at the Lexus Driving School at Atlanta Motor Speedway infield course. These cars are awesome. Even after 4 hours of pedal (and brakes) to the metal, they continued to perform superbly! Now if I could only afford one. I asked what they were going to do with these 20 or so cars - as this was the last Driving School - and they said they would be crushed, brakes, motor, leather interior and all! I walked away with a tear in my eye....

To join the conversation with owners and fans on our social channels,
Appearing as though it is precision machined from a single sheet of metal,
the Lexus NX will certainly turn heads when out on the roads. This premium
compact crossover is a first for Lexus; its blend of edgy styling and
world-leading technology making it a desirable addition to the range. The
Lexus NX incorporates a choice of petrol and hybrid powertrains culminating
in the highly efficient full hybrid NX 300h, and is offered in five trim
levels, ranging from the entry-level S, up through SE and Luxury to the
driver-focused F Sport model, and culminating in the range-topping Premier.
Technology abounds on the NX, aiding both safety and convenience and making
the Lexus a great place to be.

FIRST DRIVE! 2015 Lexus RC F
After a 15 year absence from having a coupe in their lineup, Lexus launches
the 2015 RC F, High-Performance Sport Coupe, to rival the BMW M4, Audi RS5
and Mercedes-Benz C63. With 467 horsepower, this V8-powered
track-ready car is poised and ready to make an impact.
2014 Lexus IS F Sedan
2014 Lexus IS F sedan: Say bye-bye to the brutally quick IS F
The good: The 2014 Lexus IS F's V-8 is a total hoot and pairs nicely with
the eight-speed, close ratio automatic transmission. The dated tech holds
up surprisingly well to modern standards.
The bad: Despite its advanced transmission, the engine is pretty old tech.
Fuel economy will dip into the single digits, if you're not careful.
The bottom line: The terrifically impractical 2014 Lexus IS F is the most
un-Lexus model in the lineup, but it's an absolute thriller.
Largely unchanged since its 2008 debut, the IS F is sort of the black sheep
of Lexus' lineup. With its big, inefficient V-8 and boisterous character,
it's the most un-Lexus model the automaker builds. So, I was equal parts
surprised and pleased to see that the automaker was still producing it this
late into the generation transition.
You see, the IS F sedan and the IS C convertible are the last of the
second-generation IS models, the sedans that make up the bulk of sales have
already moved on to the third-generation's awkwardly styled sheet metal.
But this will be the last year that Lexus builds this beastly brute. So, as
the 2014 IS F sedan left the Car Tech garage this week, I was bidding
farewell to the Mighty F in more ways than one.

This is the most powerful car that Lexus have ever created' the IS-F. The F
stands for Fuji Speedway. It's Lexus's equivalent of Mercedes' AMG or BMW's
Motorsport. This IS is completely transformed.

2015 New Lexus IS F .. Tom's New Aero Kit Previews How the Next Lexus IS F Might Look
Everyone is eager to see how the next Lexus IS F will look and feel. The
current sleeper-looking model is on sale up until the end of the year,
after which the next generation has to step on the scene.
The luxury automaker said nothing clear about its development, but this
won't stop us thinking about how the next Lexus performance sedan will be.
It most certainly will inherit the new RC F's V8 that puts out over 450 hp
(yes, Lexus still hasn't put an official exact power output), get an
8-speed direct-shift automatic gearbox and a torque vectoring differential.
But how will it look?
Well, regarding at how similar the old IS F was with the standard version,
we think the tradition will continue to the new generation two. The IS
fitted with the F Sport packis already an astounding looking sedan, so
don't expect to see a major style change on the F.
Japanese tuner Tom's just revealed a new body kit for the 2014 Lexus IS F
Sport, which might show us the way the F version will probably head. I
mean, don't look for beefed fenders and redesigned bumpers. Just some lower
lips, the classic oblique double-barrel Exhausts and maybe a hood vent along with a set
of new rims.
Things you can already see offered by Tom's kit here. Hilariously though,
the kit is applied on the least powerful IS 300h version. Still, it looks

The Lexus IS is a series of entry-level luxury cars
/ compact executive cars sold by Lexus since 1998. The IS was introduced as
an entry-level sport model slotted below the ES in the Lexus lineup (and
outside of North America, the Lexus GS). The IS was originally sold under
the Toyota Altezza nameplate in Japan (the word "altezza" is Italian for
"highness") until the introduction of the Lexus brand and the second
generation Lexus IS design in 2006. The Altezza name is still used at times
to refer to chromed car taillights like those fitted to the first
generation model, known as 'Altezza lights' or 'Lexus-style' lights.
The first-generation Altezza (codename XE10) was
launched in Japan in October 1998, while the Lexus IS 200 (GXE10) made its
debut in Europe in 1999 and in North America as the IS 300 (JCE10) in 2000.
The first-generation, inline-6-powered IS featured sedan and wagon
variants. The second-generation IS (codename XE20) was launched globally in
2005 with V6-powered IS 250 (GSE20) and IS 350 (GSE21) sedan models,
followed by a high-performance V8 sedan version, the IS F, in 2007, and
hardtop convertible versions, the IS 250 C and IS 350 C, in 2008. The
third-generation Lexus IS premiered in January 2013 and includes the
V6-powered IS 350 and IS 250, hybrid IS 300h, and performance-tuned F Sport
variants. The IS designation stands for Intelligent Sport.
