If you are in need of a couple more reasons to look into the new Lexus IS-F I think we have a couple for you. The videos below are from a track day with 3 IS-F’s roaming the track and grinding some rubber into the road beneath them. It is just one demonstration of what the 5.0 liter V8 engine can do with its 400-hp and 350 ft-lbs of torque.
Take a look for yourself.
It seems a bit strange watching that thick sedan body screaming down the track. The exhaust note however has a throaty, rally feel and would certainly put the driver of the car into a racey mood.
I hope you enjoyed the show. Stay tuned for more on the Lexus IS-F and for some up-close picks from the Detroit Auto Show in January.
