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.

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
