Default 2008 IS500 preview

A preview on the new 420bhp high-performance IS500 model from Lexus. It gives a detailed insight on the features and performance of the 60.000$ car, the competition it will have to take (against BMW M3 (E90), Audi RS4, Mercedes C55 AMG), as well as a bit of Lexus IS history.

A nice gallery of high-res photos and artist's impressions accompany the article, make sure you check them out



"The new high-performance Lexus will be called IS500, will equip a 420 bhp V8 engine [...] will probably feature a detuned version of the 5.0L V8 currently in development for the LF-A supercar production version [...]"
