On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago pilots the 2012 Lexus IS F at the
test track and on the winding road. The IS F may have ushered in the
rebirth of sporty, fun-to-drive cars for Toyota, but how does it stack up
today against formidable competitors like the BMW M3 and Mercedes-Benz C63?

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
Well done, Lexus.

I had the opportunity to drive the brand new Lexus RC 350, RC 350 F-Sport
and the RC F on and off the track. Because of the limited amount of time I
had with the car this video doesn't have my full battery of ratings and
tests so stay tuned for that in the coming months.
