Rumormill: The Lexus IS-F Evo Strikes Again


Lexus IS-F Revolution

JDM blog 7tune has pushed out a rumor that the Lexus IS-F Evolution, the unconfirmed, carbon-fiber-covered editon of the IS-F, will be limited to 500 units and will cost a staggering $250,000USD. From the source:

Focus has not changed much either with previous reports of the new body losing 140kg all round and dropping to a total weight of 1550kg still holding true. All other specs such as the 423ps V8, carbon brakes, carbon interior and updated front/rear+blistered fenders have also been confirmed…the car will now only be limited to a special production run of just 500 units worldwide!…the IS-F will come in at US$250,000, a cool $50,000 higher than first expected.

The idea that Lexus would take the IS-F, add 7 hp, cut 300lbs, and then boost the price up $200,000 is just plain ludicrous. The extremely small production run does make it slightly less fantastical, considering it would practically be a collectible off the factory floor and there’s certainly always a market for rarity.

Very little chance of this rumor being accurate, though.

  1. They’re crazy!
    Is this supposed to be some sort of LFA in disguise but still with some flashy exterior that isn’t really the best?

  2. they are’nt crazy. think about it. all car companies have made at least one exotic and rare one of a kind car that costs thousands more just because it’s limited. the Lambo Reventon. $1.2 million, but why?; because it is limited and will never be made again. the Porsche Carrera GT1, the SL65AMG Black Series, the Z8…and if Lexus does it, heck why not? all the better. and i like those new exhausts.
    PS to Krew; good job on the profile images LOL

  3. Did you notice the new header image? smile

  4. Can’t possibly be that much more expensive. Should be a great car if priced reasonably.
