Lexus IS-F

The Lexus IS-F is a high-performance variation of the IS line featuring a 5.0L V8 engine producing 416 horsepower. It is the first car produced by the sport-oriented F division of Lexus.

The IS-F is designed to compete with other sporty sedans such as the Audi RS4. BMW M3 and Cadillac CTS-V .

In 2012, Lexus updated the IS-F with a series of technical revisions including a limited-slip differential and redesigned exterior.


Need for Speed: Undercover Edit

The Lexus IS-F appears in Need for Speed: Undercover as a Tier 2 vehicle, that can be unlocked upon reaching wheelman level 9. It is purchaseable for $167,500.

The top speed of the IS-F with stock performance is 222 mph (358km/h) and is shared with the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4. The IS-F can reach this speed at an average time. It also turns surprisingly well for its size in corners and is durable in pursuits .

Need for Speed: World Edit

The Lexus IS-F has been featured since the seventh closed beta in Need for Speed: World. It initially appeared as a Tier 2 vehicle, although this rating was changed with a Class D rating on August 22nd, 2012. The Lexus is also available as a one-day rental and Beauty variant.

Players can purchase the IS-F with a Class D or B rating. The Class D variant has an overall rating of 379 and costs 500,000. The Class B variant costs 2,300 and is upgraded with Amerikon Speedsystems street tuned parts.

Its overall rating is measured by 506.

The IS-F reaches 158 mph (255 kmh) as top speed and is powered by a decent acceleration. However, it is also featured with several disadvantages; The nitrous of the IS-F produces poor speed boosts and its handling suffers from severe understeer. The steering has a vague precision, which forces the player to brake in most corners to avoid contact with the wall.

The handling of the IS-F is insufficient for competitive races, as many similarly ranging cars such as the Lexus IS 350 can easily outmatch it. The IS-F is more suited for Pursuit Outrun and Team Escape .

The Beauty style became available on February 8th, 2011 for SpeedBoost purchase as a celebration of Valentine’s Day. The Beauty is equipped with pink vinyls and a white body paint colour as well as added performance parts like its Beast counterpart – the Beast Corvette Z06. It emits pink sparkles and has a female driver model.

The Beauty Lexus IS-F was re-released with race tuned performance parts as part of the 2012 Valentine’s Day celebrations. It is currently retired from the dealership.

The Synthes variant is only available as one-day rental. It can be rented for 150 and includes performance upgrades, a body kit and other visual parts. It has a 423 overall rating and appears as a Class C vehicle.

Shift 2: Unleashed Edit

The Lexus IS-F appears in Shift 2: Unleashed as a Modern Road vehicle with a performance index rating of C 740 and handling rating of 3.10. It can be purchased for $45,000.

The V8 engine of the IS-F provides a lot of power and thus enables good acceleration times. It is capable of lower corner entry speeds than smaller two-door vehicles, but does feel controllable despite having a heavy mass.

By applying a Works upgrade on the car, the IS-F gets a massive increase in performance, like every other vehicle. If the player also swaps the V8 engine with the V10 of the Lexus LFA. the IS-F gets a very quick acceleration at the cost of handling, since it becomes more loose in corners.

Trivia Edit

Need for Speed: Undercover and Shift 2: Unleashed are the only games in the Need for Speed series to feature the IS-F with its original 8-speed gearbox. In every other instalment it has appeared in, the Lexus used only a 7-speed transmission. Before February 7th, 2012, the IS-F even had only six gears in Need for Speed: World.

In Need for Speed: Undercover, several black IS-Fs can be seen driven by Chau Wu ‘s henchmen. Within the same title, players can also unlock a special die-cast version by entering the code 0;6,2; at the cheat codes menu.
