TORONTO, Sept. 4 /CNW/ - Jaw-dropping power, acceleration and handling
proven on some of the most challenging race courses the world has to offer,
including Fuji Speedway - the track that inspired its unique badge. The
2009 Lexus IS F combines high performance, high technology and high style in a
luxury sport sedan that delivers a uniquely Lexus interpretation of driving
excitement and authentic performance.
"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'
Built upon the very solid foundation of the Lexus IS series of luxury
sport sedans, the IS F was extensively tested on tracks around the world. In
addition to Fuji Speedway, the IS F proved itself on tracks including
Germany's legendary Nurburgring Nordschleife, Circuit Paul Richard in France,
Circuit Zolder in Belgium and California's Laguna Seca Raceway.
"Over the past two decades, Lexus has firmly established itself as a
luxury leader. Along the way, our vision of contemporary luxury and L-finesse
design has redefined luxury motoring," Mr. Wearing continued. "When we
launched the IS F earlier this year, this impressive beast and the new F
series marque it wears expanded the Lexus brand's scope by offering our guests
a uniquely Lexus interpretation of driving excitement and authentic
performance. That same thrill is back again, for the 2009 model year. The
pursuit of perfection has never been so exhilarating."
The 2009 Lexus IS F is now on sale across Canada. The suggested retail
price starts at $64,450.
