Lexus IS 350 F SPORT Named Esquire Car of the Year

2014 Lexus IS 350 F SPORT

The 2014 Lexus IS 350 F SPORT has been named the Esquire Car of the Year:

This is a deeply Japanese machine in the best way, a hypersensitive steamroller of a car that has as much in common with a German autobahn weapon as a Gundam suit does with a Walther P38. The industry has never been more concerned with green, but it’s also never been a better time to buy an honest, gutsy, fast set of wheels. The IS 350 F Sport is all that. And it’s the Esquire Car of the Year.

Regardless of how much value you place on a car award from Esquire, the magazine chose the IS F SPORT over every other vehicle released in the last year. It’s also worth noting that the person writing for Esquire is Sam Smith, the executive editor of Road & Track.

What do you think, is this just the start of the awards for the new Lexus sports sedan?
