レクサス「IS F」の紹介動画後編では、実際にIS Fに乗り込み、勾配の激しいワインディングロードにてテストドライブ。改良が加わったサスペンションと路面追従性が向上したシャシーにより、持ち前のシャープな操舵感はそのままに、安心して攻めの走りが楽しめるスポーティな仕上がりに。レクサスらしい上質さにダイナミックな走りがプラスされ、ますます進化を続ける新しいIS Fを試乗インプレッション！
Roadfly.com - 2011 Lexus IS-F Road Test & Review
The 2011 Lexus IS-F may not look so different than IS-Fs of the past four years, but thorough re-tuning of its suspension has finally transformed it into a complete sports sedan.
This isn't your mother's Lexus! The IS-F scorches the tarmac with 416 hp from its 5.0L Yamaha-tuned V8. The redline is 6800rpm, but you can tell the motor wants to pull to 8k and beyond.
It produces 371 lb.-ft. of torque at 5200 rpm, and at around 4000 rpm you can hear a noticeable cam phase, like that of a Honda VTEC motor or any of Yamaha's other high-performance street-car motors found in Ford and Toyota products over the years.
That somewhat peaky powerband gives the car a very racy feeling, and the 8-speed automatic does a commendable job of getting the power down. The IS-F rockets to 60mph in 4.2 seconds, yet the 8 speeds allow it to achieve decent fuel economy (16/23) and dodge the gas guzzler tax.
The addition of a Torsen limited-slip differential, as well as the suspension upgrades, combined to knock off around 8 seconds from the car's lap time at VIR, putting it nearly equal with the vaunted BMW M3. It also equals or bests our tester M3's equipment levels while costing nearly $7000 less.
Well done, Lexus.

2007 Audi RS4 vs. 2008 Lexus IS-F by Edmunds' Inside Line
With the introduction of the 2009 Lexus IS-F, it's supposed to be 1989 all over again.
That was the year that Toyota dared to take on the established German luxury carmakers with its brand-new luxury division, Lexus. And it was also the year that the Lexus LS 400 sedan's immediate success embarrassed those German luxury carmakers into dramatically improving their quality, their customer service and even their prices.
Lexus would like you to believe that the 416-horsepower IS-F will have a similar impact on the market for over-endowed hot-rod sedans that is dominated by (you guessed it) the Germans. The "F" suffix for this new variant of the IS is a nod to the early days of Lexus, when "F1" became the code designation for the LS 400 prototype.
