Closest thing to a motorcycle no wind
By OD on


2008 Lexus IS F 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 8A)


Very tightly built 4 door sports car. Amazing engine sound over 4000 RPM. Very strong engine performance at high RPM. Very smooth gearbox at normal driving. 1500 RPM at 60 MPH. Fun to use puddles usable even in D and amazingly effective 8 gear shifting. Extreme snappy in M. Drifts easily and naturally without special effort even with VDIM on. Hard to use navigation with Mark Levinson sounding poor compared to Bose and navigation on M45 on Infiniti. Very good seats including passenger. Rear OK, but only accommodate 4. Ride is VERY tight bordering on harsh so not for use on rough roads. 15 MPG city, 20 MPG light foot hwy.

Best Features

Closest thing to a mototrcycle without bugs in your teeth. Very stealth most people can tell it's anything special. Engine sound over 4000 RPM is fantastic. Slides easily, neutrally and safely.

Worst Features

adjustable suspention with sport and regular modes
