The sporty, stylish and high performance Lexus is here. The 2012 Lexus IS will wear the ‘F’ designation to denote its powerful engine and specialized parts. At the heart of the car is a tuned IS F 5.0-liter V8 delivering 416hp and 371 lb.ft. of torque. Power is tamed by an eight-speed Sport Direct Shift transmission which lets the driver select between manual shifting for speed or automatic for convenience. Everything on the car basically has been revised, and it’s now being offered with more luxury options to compete with similarly-sized German saloons. $TBD.
