>> Lexus has been the Germans worst headache for a while now and getting more so, now that the company will go after the vaunted Mercedes AMG, BMW M and Audi S cars. Lexis will call their hot rods the F cars and the first one will be this, the ISF, the engine is a 5 liter V-8 putting out 400 horse power in 350 foot pounds related to but not quite the same engine as in the big LS. Unfortunately shoehorning that engine under the hood of the smaller car left a rather ungainly proboscis on the top of the hood. The transmission is an eight speed direct sports shift manumatic [assumed spelling] it's all new although the number of gears may make you think it came out of the LS, it's a different transmission. Zero to 60 comes up in less than five seconds. There will be a new three mode vehicle dynamics control that lets you decide how bad you want to scare yourself you for it kicks in. You'll be able to order an ISF in early 2008.
