If you check out Lexus’s website you will see that the asking price for an IS-F is just under $57,000. Topspeed has already reported that the Japanese luxury car maker is preparing an even more high tech version of the V8 powered, eight speed shifting IS sedan that will be known as the IS-F Evolution.

Initial speculation estimated the price to be around $200,000. If that sounds like a lot for a carbon fiber IS-F, what about $250,000? At almost $200,000 more than the already high performance version of the Lexus IS the Evolution should be packing some pretty serious heat if Lexus plans on selling all 500 examples.

Set to be released in the summer of 2010, the IS-F Evolution will be powered by a V8 engine delivering 423 HP, up from the 416 HP in the standard model. The weight of the vehicle will be reduced to only 1550 kilograms and will feature supercar parts like carbon ceramic brakes, carbon fiber interior and even bolder blistered fenders made from the woven black stuff.

bimmerman, i don’t think they will need a supercharger to bring the output from 416 to 423hp.

If 1550 is the light version, whats the stock one weigh?

This car evolution must be something. with the supercharged V8 engine that is something for a Japanese car. We hope to see the final touches that will be done to this car.

Japanese would like to buy their car more expensive, does it mean they have more dollars to buy it, not really but of course, it’s most of them who will be buying their own cars.

This 25K is not for US market anyways. Most of this evolution will be sold in Japan. So don’t worry with this price it will not cross the US coast.

That is right. 250K for evolution? I would think twice for this baby. I might get an LF-A instead. But we can never tell what the Lexus group have in mind.

Agreed. 250k for 423hp is a ripoff. But it could also be a sign that Lexus is planning the LF-A for production and don’t want the IS-F Evolution to steal the spotlight.

But then its also stupid to price this car the same as a supercar. 250k is the probable price of the LF-A.
