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
video! For more info on this vehicle as well as others visit

2008 Lexus IS F Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
Lexus IS F. Luxury, comfort and craftsmanship are words often associated
with Lexus. Any car maker would be happy to elicit such descriptions but
Lexus wants more. Toyotas luxury division would love to add one more word
to that list: Excitement. And the Lexus IS-F is the first step in making
that a reality.
Welcome to our comprehensive Kelley Blue Book review of the Lexus IS-F.
Think of the regular Lexus IS as the automotive equivalent of Clark Kent -
mild-mannered and pleasant but a ittle light in terms of excitement. Like
Kents alter ego Superman, the IS is transformed into superhero IS-F by way
of a flashier outfit, quicker moves and a surplus of raw power. The result
might not be faster than a
speeding bullet, but it is a fast sedan that Lexus hopes will win over
performance fans like the Man of Steel won over Lois Lane. For more new car

2013 Lexus IS-F - WR TV POV Test Drive
Read our thoughts on the IS-F here:
For the best video experience, we recommend wearing a good set of
headphones for the POV Test Drive at 3:20. The audio in this video was
recorded with binaural microphones that, when played back through
headphones, give the feel of 3D sound. Trick stuff.
