The S65 is derived from the S85 V10 but a completely new casting / engine.

Still the S65 is derived from a good true M motor in the V10. The IS-F engine is derived from a luxo-barge.

If Lexus didn't bother developing a sporty motor, what other compromises did they make?

A motor with 420hp, 350lbs of torque and 0-60 in 4.2 secs is not sporty for you. This is what i mean when i said i know what you are trying to do. I get it and it's cool.
