The 2008 Lexus IS-F revealed at the 2007 North American International
Auto Show in Detroit is the top spec model in the Lexus IS range.
The all-new 2008 Lexus IS-F produces more than 400 horsepower
and 350 ft-lbs of torque from a 5.0-liter V8 engine mated to
an 8-speed sport-shift automatic transmission with steering
wheel mounted paddles.
The high performance figures achieved by the Lexus IS-F requires
it be equipped with heavy-duty Brembo brakes designed to the
specifications of the Lexus engineering team. Huge, 14.2-inch
cross-drilled front discs are gripped by rigid, powerful six-piston
aluminum calipers, while 13.6-inch rear cross-drilled discs
feature two-piston calipers. High-friction brake pads are equipped
on all four wheels. The brakes are finished with the Lexus name
displayed on the calipers, a first for a Lexus production vehicle.
The wheels of the IS-F are 19 inch forged alloy units form BBS.
Like the exterior, the interior of the Lexus IS-F receives unique
styling with aluminized composite trim and special surface treatments.
The instrument panel includes an oil-temperature gauge and shift
indicator-lights, while the "F" logo is showcased
on the steering wheel and rear-center console.
