About Lexus IS-F
On January 8, 2007, the Lexus IS F made its first public appearance at the North American International Auto Show. The vehicle is equipped with a 5.0-liter direct-injected V8 that generates 416 SAE horsepower (423 PS, 311 kW) at 6,600 revolutions per minute (rpm), and its peak torque is 371 foot-pounds of force (503 Nm) at 5,200 rpm. In addition to these features, the engine has an intake system with two stages, coolers for the engine oil and the automatic transmission fluid, and an oil pump that is optimized for high-speed cornering. IS 350 has a 2GR-FSE V6 engine that produces 306 horsepower, while the IS F has a 2UR-GSE V8 engine that produces over 400 horsepower (300 kW).
The IS F was introduced to the public for the first time in Europe at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2007, and for the first time in Japan at the Fuji Speedway in October 2007. The first customers were able to purchase the automobile in Japan at the tail end of 2007, in the United States at the beginning of 2008, and in Europe in 2008.
The F designation was first used in 1989, when Lexus was first introduced to the world, as an internal code for the development of the company’s first flagship automobile.
At the end of 2006, Lexus submitted trademark applications for a “F” emblem, which led to rumors that the luxury brand was planning to launch a performance brand in the near future. At the time, some people speculated that the letter F stood for “Flagship” or “Fast.” The shape of the letter “F” is said to have been influenced by the first corner of the Fuji Speedway, which is referred to as “27R.” Later reports speculated that “F” referred to the Fuji Speedway. In previous years, representatives of the company have brought up the possibility of launching a performance brand to compete with the likes of BMW’s M division, Cadillac’s V-series, Audi’s S/RS, and Mercedes-AMG, Benz’s amongst other manufacturers’ high-end performance lines.
