Under the radar
By j_az on


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


This car is just amazing! The Engine is fierce, 420hp from a normally aspirated 5 liter V8. I love this car because only a handful of people know what this car is and everyone else just assumes it's just another Lexus, that's fine with me because it keeps me under the radar, but when the occasional person in the know sees the car, jaws drop! The exhaust note is also intoxicating. 8 spd tranny is fantastic. I have owned Audis and VWs with their dual clutch trannys which i can say honestly are the best I have ever driven, but the Lexus does not come up short here. Interior is well designed. Steering wheel feels a tad thin for me and the leather is just too soft.

Best Features

Engine, Styling, transmission and reliability.

Worst Features

Tougher leather, Thicker steering wheel, a bit more bass from ML sub and a little bit more HP.
