  • Yeh, no more boring cars from a company that chose ES over GS that chose mass appeal over exclusivity and status. For a company that kicks ass in all kinds of racing that has the biggest number of patents among motor firms that is an innovation leader that can make most modern high budget engines like V35A-FTS (LS500) and most modern 10 speed Aisin transmission, Toyota makes very boring and outdated cars.

  • My buddy had a Lexus 300 in HS and drove it for years after graduating then one day he rolled it and totalled it. His dad, who was filthy rich from the multiple Burger Kings he owned, took the smashed roof 300 and completely rebuilt it back to showroom quality. New engine and all. It was such a waste of money too me. Guess not to him tho cause he still owns it and drives it to shows. He has a folder showing the cars life and how it was redone. Probably the most expensive stock 300 ever. Lol. Also that new Lexus looks and sounds amazing.

    Richard WhitrodRichard WhitrodMese fa
  • This was a good video. However, I wish there was more credit given to the ISF which was the base for this formula of smaller sedan with a V8 engine. Plus, the quad stack exhaust and bulging hood is the ISF's signature look. I think Lexus tried to send the message to the enthusiasts with the creation of the ISF, but due to its lack of interest initially based on retail sales the formula had to be dropped till now. This is our chance as enthusiasts to show that this is something we want so Lexus can continue to make motorsport inspired vehicles which in turn could capture the eyes of other manufacturers and create competition. If not, Lexus will be forced to follow the market and continue to drop performance (discontinuation of GSF and ISF) and sell SUV's. We've all but lost the manual, let's not lose performance too.

  • I think people hate naturally aspirated v8 vehicles because the name naturally aspirated sounds like a car with asthma or a disability of some kind . Natural ASPY just sounds like it skips PE with a note from the doctor . Meanwhile turbo and twin turbo sound like they are team captains . Little do they know good ol Natural ASPY is going to out live the popular turbo and twin turbo because it doesn’t do all this fancy blow witch is an expensive habit . Also turbo and twin turbo are secretly trying to get rid of Natral ASPY V8 because they mate with its sister natural ASPY V6 and can’t be seen in the same popular group !

  • Yes it is a great idea. Limited Edition and Production numbers are already a statement - value and rarity. Anyone who genuinely loves cars should know how special this machine is. But the real reason to buy one is for the personal satisfaction that comes from having something that truly delivers on the promise of driving enjoyment. Combining the bold styling of the new 2021 IS launched last year with this awesome V8 engine, the IS 500 is simply an enthusiast’s dream. Or in other words, those who get, get it.
