IS 500!

In the new Road and Track magazine, they have a picture of the new IS 500. They are saying that it will be going up right against the new M3, with a 400 hp V-8 engine. Not a whole lot of info but still something new to look at!!

I guess we'll have to wait and see but it would AMAZE me if lexus could even come close to the M3 in all around performance. I would guess it would be much closer to one of the similar sized Mercedes AMG models. I'm no expert though, so we'll see.

I honestly dont like the body of the IS 350 nor the IS500, but i think it will be nice to see another car company try and take the crown from BMW and its M3.

In the R&T magazine, they are stating that it will be using a tuned down version of the New Supra's engine.

if anything it looks like a g35 in shape....it's cool, but it will never beat the m3 in all around performance.

I like it minus the exhaust. Its hard to say what it is better or worse than at this point since it doesn't even exist yet but I like the look.
