IS-F Evolution Pricing Revealed
New rumors that the GT Killer IS-F from Lexus is out and about being tested have sprung up. Sources in the know say that at a recent test drive event put on by the maker, the IS-F was rapidly drawing closer to production and has been slated for a summer 2010 release.
Reports from participants on the day have confirmed previous reports of the car having undergone serious ‘carobonization’ and weight reduction all around. Focus has not changed much either with previous reports of the new body losing 140kg all round and dropping to a total weight of 1550kg still holding true. All other specs such as the 423ps V8, carbon brakes, carbon interior and updated front/rear+blistered fenders have also been confirmed. The big news is that the car will now only be limited to a special production run of just 500 units worldwide! Numbers for countries have yet to be decided but as with most Japanese makers, Japan will likely receive the lions share. The other big news? Lexus has apparently agreed upon and finalized the price. Don’t hold your breath, but the IS-F will come in at US$250,000, a cool $50,000 higher than first expected. Look out for this carbon monster next Summer or possibly Nuburgring in the not too distant future!
