“The IS F is the next-generation high-output thrill ride that serious drivers across Canada were waiting for,” said Tony Wearing, Managing Director, Lexus in Canada. “With the IS F, we have created a new breed of performance machine, the product of an entirely new design and engineering process at Lexus. It’s already proven itself worthy of its unique marque, the ‘F’ series.”
The IS F was extensively tested on tracks around the world, including Japan’s Fuji Speedway, Germany’s Nurburgring Nordschleife, Circuit Paul Richard in France, Circuit Zolder in Belgium and California’s Laguna Seca Raceway.
