Hennessey to Tune Lexus IS-F

2008 Lexus IS-F

Best known for for their insanely souped-up Dodge Vipers, Hennessey Performance Engineering will be turning their attention on the Lexus IS-F:

In an interview with Inside Line, John Hennessey dropped some broad hints as to his next project: “We have a new IS-F coming in next week. Our plan with that car is to test some headers, exhaust and air induction items first. Then maybe a blower.”

This information is confirmed on the Hennessey website, which promises “Air Induction Kits, Stainless Headers & Exhaust Systems, Ported Cylinder Heads, Supercharger Systems & More.” All of this adds up to over-the-top, genuinely ridiculous speed, which I find entirely questionable. Does the IS-F really need more power?
