Car and Driver Full Test: 2008 Lexus IS F
Lexus should affix a badge on the door jamb reading: WARNING—Tympanic membrane may become addicted to wide-open throttle and assume control of right foot. It’s not the typical coffee-can kazoo exhaust found on other Japanese hot rods, and this F has the punch to back up the aural hullabaloo. The newest M3 is only quicker than the IS F in the 0-to-150-mph sprint. Give Lexus three more generations to enhance this F, and you’ll be accusing us of being on Toyota’s payroll instead of BMW’s.
