The Lexus IS F is exclusively by a performance-tuned 5.0-liter V8 engine to an eight-speed Sport Direct transmission. The IS F engine produces 416 at 6,600 rpm and 371 lb.-ft. of peak at 5,200 rpm. The engine’s specific output (83.2 and high operating range RPM redline) reflect the thorough to detail underlying the core

The resulting performance character, quite responsive in low-speed provides a rush of power at engine speeds.

The forged features journals polished to a finish to minimize the friction between the connecting rods and the Forged sintered iron connecting rods ensure durability. High-flow cylinder designed by Yamaha have a valvetrain, including forged cam on hollow, chain-driven camshafts, the inside of the shafts serving as oil

technologies help to maximize and reduce emissions, including the SFI D-4 injection (direct-to-cylinder injection with secondary port and the Electronic Throttle Control with intelligence (ETCS-i). SFI D-4 integrates two types of fuel A direct-type high-pressure fuel system, which provides a effect in the cylinders and enables the compression ratio (11.8:1) to extract maximum energy the fuel; a set of low-pressure port injectors that help a precise burn to optimize and efficiency under light- and conditions.

A dual air-intake system a primary intake passage for low and engine speeds. In the higher speed range (above rpm), both the primary and passages are opened, helping high-rpm power.

With the IS F V8, Lexus made a leap in technology with the Variable Timing with intelligence and controlled intake cam (VVT-iE). An drive motor alters the camshaft phasing, which it possible to expand VVT operational to lower engine speeds, engine oil pressure is usually not enough to operate conventional The exhaust camshaft uses controlled variable valve

The world’s first eight-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission the performance characteristics of an automated transmission with the smoothness and of a planetary-type automatic transmission. As a the driver can choose between manual shifts for performance and smooth automatic shifts convenience is the top priority.

Eight allow gear ratios maximize torque up to the tire-grip in the lower ranges while efficiency. Intuitive powertrain optimally smoothes out off-the-line Artificial Intelligence-SHIFT (AI-SHIFT) the driver’s Sport switch by automatically adapting the shifting on road conditions and driver

The IS F transmission is also highly to uphill/downhill driving, always the best gear for power or braking.

The driver can shift using either the console or steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. New technology allows the IS F’s eight-speed Direct Shift transmission to on par with manual transmissions sacrificing the smoothness of a torque-converter Paddle-shifting operation is allowed in D or M modes, but shifts are quicker and direct in M mode.

In M mode, the will hold each to the 6,800-RPM redline, and upshifts are in just one-tenth of a second. At engine speeds, downshifts are by automated and precise throttle to match engine rpm to vehicle


The Lexus IS F is based on the IS platform, which was engineered the start to allow a high envelope. The stiff body and the rear subframe are connected several reinforcements. Much of the IS F took place at racetracks the world, including Germany’s Nurburgring Nordschleife, Circuit Ricard in France, Japan’s Speedway and the Higashi-Fuji Technical in Japan.

Fuji Speedway is the IS F’s circuit, and the shape of its turn one the F-logo design.

Although the basic double-wishbone front and multi-link rear suspension of the IS platform, the IS F features a multitude of modifications. The IS F sits an inch on its suspension than the standard IS which lowers the center of and helps provide a quicker response.

Spring and damper are increased, and larger-diameter stabilizer are used. The rear-suspension control are specific to the IS F to optimize geometry for the wheels. In addition, the monotube absorbers use a larger-diameter piston

As on other IS models, the sophisticated design utilizes multi-leaf control valves to help damping force, and rebound offer improved body without degrading ride

Subframe suspension mounts are than on other IS models to reduce sway and ensure under acceleration and braking. The mounts are also stiffer for a direct feel. Special stoppers on both the front and suspension come into early in the compression … to reduce the sway angle cornering and to reduce dive braking.

The Electric Power (EPS) system has been for improved steering response and while providing precise and excellent straight-line control.

The wheels are 19 x 8J, with 225/40R19 and 19 x 9J in the rear, with 255/35R19 Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 and Potenza tires were developed specifically for the 170-mph capability of the Lexus IS F. High-rigidity hub bearings are engineered for rigorous, g-force track driving.

The tire pressure monitoring allows two sets of tires to be giving the customer the benefit of a with a set of track tires or tires. The multi-information display the tire selector switch.

A calibrated version of Lexus’ Vehicle Dynamics Integrated (VDIM) system helps superior handling dynamics and control. Combining input a variety of sensors, VDIM is to anticipate the onset of a vehicle or slide and help correct the with a combination of braking, and throttle control in a way that is transparent to the driver. VDIM provides precise management for Vehicle Stability Control traction control (TRAC), the Braking System (ABS), Assist (BA), Electronic force Distribution (EBD), and torque (via the electronically throttle).

VDIM also an electronically controlled brake-based differential effect on the rear During cornering, VDIM any tendency for the inside wheel to transmitting more power to the wheel to help maintain and momentum. When braking on a surface, VDIM will steering assist in the direction will help provide the control.

Using a dashboard switch, the can select Normal, Sport or driving modes. In Sport VDIM allows higher thresholds before intervening and steering assist to increase feel. Sport mode provide excellent optimal control on a track in areas the skills of even top-level are challenged.

The experienced driver can VSC/TRAC by pressing and holding the button for more than seconds. Even with disengaged, however, the system provides the brake-based limited-slip effect and ABS. For 2010 year the IS F also has standard rear differential which provide additional traction in driving.

The PCS computer, taking sensor from vehicle speed, angle and yaw rate, is designed to whether a collision is unavoidable. In a situation, PCS preemptively retracts seat belts and pre-initializes BA so increased braking will be the instant the driver depresses the
