As the rival of BMW M3, the Lexus IS-F is constantly adjusting itself to become better and better in hope that some day it’ll be able to match the Bavarian in all aspects.
The car has a good recipe, so when it comes to updating it Lexus just tweak it. For the new year, they have made a couple of minor changes.
The most important change is that the car now complies with Euro5 standard, without compromise on power. The 5.9 liter V8 in the IS-F chucks out 416 hp and it’s mated to an eight-speed gearbox which takes the car form zero to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 168 mph.
Other upgrades include new LED daytime running lights, addition of a limited slip differential, revised coilover suspension for ride comfort, and a new dark silver carbon fibre-style trim.
The pricing for 2011 Lexus IS-F starts from £57,105.
