Taking a "HOT LAP" with professional race car driver, Chris Mitchum. We drove in a 2008 Lexus IS-F, around a race car track in Summit Point, West Virginia. We spent the day in WV, at this event known as Lexus Performance Driving Academy.
Lexus IS F Hot Laps
One lap with a professional driver in a Lexus IS F at Summit Point Race Track.
ISF track at Race City
Aug 15 2009. 1st time tracking the ISF and 1st time on this particular track. I was pushing about 50-60%. Almost spun out on last lap. Stock PS2's were giving out at the end of the day. It was close but I had fun.
My first lap in Lexus IS F at Las Vegas Speedway
My first lap around the road course at LV Speedway in IS F. Neutral handling, incredible power and Brembo brakes. 8-speed direct shift auto transmission changes gears in .1sec. Even though I love manual gearbox there is no argument that for shaving the last fraction of a second from your lap time this is the way to go. Shifts are direct, immediate and smooth, no waiting. Downshifts are just as quick with the "blip" perfectly mimmicking well executed heel-and-toe. SMG and dual-clutch trans don't compare. Plus, this is a Lexus, street ride is smooth and quiet.
2008 Lexus IS-F Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
Well ever since I did the video on the 2011 IS-F I have been on a search for the famous ultrasonic blue mica that had been featured in all the original press releases for the IS-F upon it's release. Plus I wanted a more smooth orchestrated video that taught viewers a little more about the history behind the car, my search is over and I hope everyone enjoys! In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2008 Lexus IS-F. This car is also part of the vast hendrick performance collection. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
Thanks a lot to Hendrick BMW of Charlotte, NC for allowing me to film this video! For more info on this vehicle as well as others visit www.hendrickbmw.com

2013 Lexus GS350 F-Sport Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth look at the all new 2013 Lexus GS350 F-Sport. Quite the impressive redesign from the previous model packed with new styling, luxury and great build quality. The F-sport package is Lexus' answer to the BMW M-sport package and features altered body styling, a sporty interior and performance upgrades. While the exterior is quite unique, the interior takes the best from BMW's center stack design by incorporating a 12.3" multimedia interface with a unique controller in the center console. There's lots and lots of tech demos towards the middle for those gadget minded people, took a while to explain. I highly recommend checking it out in person, as there's many trim levels and options to suit your needs as I showed towards the end of the video. I, personally, am looking forward to seeing the rest of the lexus fleet adapt to this new generation styling. During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world, presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960 Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new, exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's Seat of YouTube!
