Lexus IS 500 F Sport Performance

Lexus launches its F Sport Performance Line with a new V8-powered IS 500. Offering a more muscular option than the V6 of IS 350, the new IS 500 F Sport Performance produces 472 hp and 395 lb-ft of torque, making its way from 0-60 in 4.5 seconds while still managing to achieve an estimated 24 mpg. All that power is paired to an eight-speed automatic Direct Shift transmission and they've also packed a Dynamic Handling Package, Adaptive Variable Suspension, Torsen limited slip differential, and a Yamaha rear performance damper. 

The exterior also receives a number of updates that include a hood that has been raised by almost two inches and the bumpers and fenders have been lengthened to make room for the V8. Each car will come standard with 19-inch Enkei alloy wheels, a revised lower rear diffuser accent, dark chrome window trim, a black F Sport rear lip spoiler, and black F Sport Performance badging. 

The 2022 IS 500 F Sport Performance will be available later this fall.
