Lexus IS F is updating

Lexus's top of the range IS F is updating.

We are led to believe that the firm is about to launch a new generation model called the IS F Evolution. The saloon promises to be over 100kg lighter than the regular IS F due to the extensive use of carbon fibre in the body panels and interior.

The 411bhp 5.0-litre V8 will benefit froma boost in power with fade-free carbon ceramic brakes to reign in the extra performance. The new Lexus IS F Evolution is likely to debut at October's Tokyo Motor Show and arrive in Summer 2010, but you will need to be quick as production will be limited to only 500 units worldwide and attract a premium price over and above the current IS F price of £53,000.
