Once again Lexus has decided to give a revival to one of its sedans. This is the IS F, but under a different platform. This is the 2022 model and it would be just 500 of them in the world, and the world means here the US.
The new car by Lexus is IS 500 F Sport Performance. As it’s a very exclusive offer, this edition is going to be finished in Incognito. This is a new brand exterior color just for Lexus lineup. Then on every each of these 500 units a serialized badge is appointed to highlight their exclusivity.
Have the money and waiting for the arrival? So, wait till this fall. It is scheduled to see them on the Us market. The IS 500 F Sport Performance Launch Edition has matte-black lightweight wheels in the guise of 19-inch forged alloys from BBS. Inside the cabin are two-tone Ultrasuede upholstery for the front and rear seats, door cards, and the center console waiting for you. The steering wheel is decorated with leather-wrapped rim, heating, silver ash wood, and F Sport Performance badging.
We can name this new Sedan as the most powerful IS of Lexus. Its engine produces 472 hp at 7,100 rpm and 536 Nm at 4,800 rpm. The latest record of power among the IS’s, it was for the all-alloy V8 with Yamaha know-how and D4-S tech was rated at 417 horsepower and 372 pound-feet (505 Nm) of torque. Maybe the IS 500 would be the last of Sedan species with free-breathing V8. Even BMW is using now straight-six engines on its sedan’s, AMG is shrinking the engine and Audi is saying goodbye to the combustion engines.
This IS 500 hits 100k/h in just 4.5 seconds and burns 9.8 liters of benzine per 100 kilometers while the BMW M3 s its competitor burns 10.2 liters.
