Because the all-new RC F is just around the corner.
There’s no doubting that the Lexus IS F is a fantastic high-performance sports sedan that’s on par with the likes of the previous generation BMW M3. The key words to take from that previous sentence are "previous generation BMW M3." You see, there’s an all-new M3/M4 in town and when compared to them, the IS F is definitely an aging model. Fortunately for Lexus, a successor will debut at Detroit next month, the RC F.
Until then, the IS F remains the fastest production car in the Lexus lineup. Watch as pro race driver Justin Bell takes the IS F for a day and nighttime spin around Willow Springs. And to make things interesting, he's given an extra challenge for his night excursion.
