Lexus IS-F from A to Z

Lexus has a new car out on the road and it is the IS-F, a sportier version of the already sporty IS class. Lexus claims the 416hp vehicle goes 0-60 in 4.6 while that is amazing, its not entirely amazing when compared to the 414 hp BMW M3 going 0-60 in low 4 seconds. Car has an amazing 8speed and also don’t forget the price tag of $56,000. While i’m not personally too crazy about lexus i think they did go up a level in creating this new IS-F but for the price and speed, one is better off going with the bmw M3 or audi S4 or RS4 for a real sports car. Below are specs of the car and also pictures and a video of the car accelerating which sounds very soft for a v-8 producing 416hp.[Source Lexus]
