Lexus has long competed in the luxury car market, but traditionally it didn’t have much to offer consumers who wanted a vehicle with exceptionally high performance. That’s all changed, however, with the recent introduction of the Lexus IS-F. Based on the regular IS luxury sport sedan, the IS-F comes with a V8 engine, a track-tuned suspension, stronger brakes and special interior and exterior styling details. While it has some faults, the IS-F does indeed offer a serious, no-compromises driving experience for hard-core enthusiasts.

Under the IS-F’s hood is a 5.0-liter V8 engine tuned to produce a mighty respectable 416 horsepower and 371 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is an eight-speed automatic, controlled by paddle shifters on the steering wheel. Other high-performance features include engine oil and transmission fluid coolers, a mechanical limited-slip differential and an oil pump designed for high-speed cornering. The IS-F also features a performance-oriented version of Lexus’ electronic stability control system.

2012款车型,这可是一款416马力的高性能运动车。坐在IS F真皮包裹的三辐方向盘后面,不禁让我回忆起几年前我曾经试驾过的那辆08款车型。首先,那是一款市场上燃油经济性最高的高性能轿车之一。
