Lexus will be taking on two of its most coveted rivals, Mercedes C63, Audi RS4 and the BMW M3, with its all new IS-F performance sedan. This latest video shows the car going through some high-speed antics down at the Laguna Seca speedway, and, by the looks of things, IS-F owners will have nothing to worry about up against the more established German muscle cars. Heres the video: OLDER: We finally have images of Lexuss high-performance IS-F sedan. Set to go head-to-head with BMWs M3 and Audis RS4, the new Lexus will run a potent 5.0L V8 engine developing in excess of 400hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. The car also gets huge 19inch BBS alloys with six-pot aluminum Brembo calipers clamping 14.2inch cross-drilled discs. The drivetrain shares the eight-speed transmission from the LS sedan but comes with wheel-mounted paddle shifters that Lexus claims can change gears in a tenth of a second. Suspension upgrades sees the car ride almost an inch lower than the regular IS, while aluminum trim, a quad exhaust outlet and racing bucket-style seats allude to the cars true potential. Unlike its German rivals that tend to maintain subtle visual elements, Lexus have gone out and developed a garish aero package with huge side vents that detract from the classy look of the regular sedan. The kit resembles the cheap aftermarket bodykits so often seen on low priced imports. The F designation in the cars title denotes Lexus new performance arm, similar to BMWs M division or Mercedes AMG team. Its designers claim that the new IS-F is capable of completing the 0-60mph dash in less than 4.9 seconds but that the goal in creating the car was not to build a vehicle thats a competitor to other performance-sport sedans.
