Lexus IS-F Evolution priced at $250k
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.
