Lexus IS 500 F Sport Performance – V8 still in vogue (PHOTO)

The Japanese manufacturer offered customers its smallest sedan with a powerful 5.0 V8 engine.

Lexus has introduced an extreme version of the IS model in the US market, which has a powerful eight-cylinder engine under the hood.

It is an atmospheric 5.0-liter V8 that produces 479 hp (352 kW) at 7,100 rpm and develops a maximum torque of 535.5 Nm of 4,800 rpm.

The engine is exclusively paired with an 8-speed automatic.

That’s enough for a 1,765kg car to accelerate from 0 to 96km / h (0-60 mph) in 4.5 seconds.

By comparison, this result is 0.4 s worse than the base version of the rival BMW M3.

The Lexus IS 500 F Sport Performance will arrive in American showrooms during the fall, when the price will be known.
