Track performance is a widespread subject among IS-F builders, and due to this 0-60 Magazine raised the stake on their Lexus IS-F venture with a supercharger to squeeze out more horse power from the enormous V8 engine found under the hood.
Carbon fiber body parts reduce weight while lowering the center of gravity and a custom roll cage adds strength and protection. A powerful brake enhancement kit was integrated to balance the performance equation.
It is a fact that the 0-60 crew knows how to drive, so it's not a shocker that the buff book's IS F mixes the right amount of power with the proper dose of stick.
Even though they haven't provided the figures for the output for the Greddy-supercharged bent-eight, the educated estimate puts it somewhere close to 550 hp.
That extra power and the carbon fiber body panels should improve on the IS F's weight problem. And with a custom roll cage, TEIN suspension, improved brakes and a set of Yokohama Advan RZ wheels wrapped in Hankook Ventus EVO V12 rubber, this is the first IS F that you'd actually want to drive.
