Last week we were graced with the first images and details of the facelifted 2011 Lexus IS range and today we have details for the high-performance IS-F model. Joining the rest of the IS range at next month’s 2010 Paris Auto Show, the new 2011 Lexus IS-F will feature subtle styling tweaks, a revised interior and a cleaner powerplant.
Peak output remains at 423 horsepower but the car’s 5.0-liter V-8 is now fully compliant with the latest Euro 5 emissions standards. Acceleration for the 0-62 mph sprint takes 4.7 seconds and top speed has been electronically limited to 168 mph.
The most obvious change is to the car’s styling, with new headlight and rear light designs, a revised front grille design, plus new exterior colors and alloy wheel designs. There are also new LED daytime running lights added to the headlights.
Inside, there are new seat designs with improved support for the driver, blue stitching for the leather upholstery and a revised instrument cluster with new positions for the tachometer, speedometer and shift indicator.
Stay tuned for more details following the 2011 Lexus IS-F’s debut at next month’s Paris event.
