Lexus UK has unveiled the 2010 spec Lexus IS F, which is claimed to have sharper handling, new tech updates and an all-white interior.
As announced at last year’s Frankfurt motor show, Lexus’ M3 rival gets a new limited slip differential, improving traction and stability in high-speed cornering. The Torsen unit handles the 505 Nm delivered by the IS F’s 5.0-litre V8 engine, automatically directing drive torque to the rear wheel with the most grip. Out-and-out performance is unchanged, with the IS F capable of 0-100 km/h in 4.8 seconds and a limited top speed of 270 km/h. However, the LSD improves the car’s lap time around the Fuji International Speedway by a full two seconds.
The super saloon also ships with a new satellite navigation system powered by a 40GB hard disk drive, with full-map coverage across Europe. 10GB of the HDD’s capacity is dedicated to a “sound library” function. The IS F’s 14-speaker Mark Levinson 5.1 surround sound system has also been upgraded to receive DAB digital broadcasts and a USB port has been added.
The IS F can be ordered with a new white leather interior in place of the standard black and mesh-design 19-inch alloy wheels instead of the standard 10-spoke design. Both are no-cost options for the £55,995 car. More images after the jump.
