2012 Lexus IS F Information

2012 Lexus IS-F

Next up in the 2012 announcements is the Lexus IS F, which has received yet another suspension update, with stronger stabilizer bars, new bearings and a slightly revised suspension — giving the chassis better low-speed ride quality and less overall body roll.

Also part of the revision is a new red leather interior option (replacing the current Orange/Black option), along with new BBS 19″ 14-spoke alloy wheels (Front tires are 19 x 8.5J, with 225/40R19 tires and 19 x 9.5J in the rear, with 265/35R19 tires) — here are the only two photos I could find:

This marks the third update to the IS F in three years — which makes it perhaps the best example of Lexus’ Kaizen commitment to continuous improvement.

Note: So far, only Australia & Europe are confirmed to be getting the new suspension update — I’ll update once I get a definitive answer for North America.

Update: Turns out Europe & the USA will be getting 10-spoke alloy wheels and not 14-spoke, and they look similar to the original IS F design:
