    On 6 December 2006, Lexus officially confirmed the existence of the vehicle which they called IS-F in the press release.[12] The IS-F sedan premiered at the 2007 North American International Auto Show on 8 January 2007 as the launch product of Lexus' F-Series lineup of performance-focused vehicles.[13] A 5.0 L direct-injected V8 producing over 400 hp and 350 ft-lb powers the new IS-F. The engine also features a two-stage intake system, engine oil and transmission fluid coolers and an oil pump designed for high-speed cornering. Images were leaked a couple of hours before the official announcement.[14]

    At its press debut, Lexus revealed that a separate "skunk works" team designed the IS-F in a manner distinct from typical Lexus engineering efforts. The IS-F promises 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration under 4.9 seconds.[15] The vehicle featured an 8-speed automatic transmission, a new sport version of Lexus' electronic stability control system (Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management, or VDIM, featuring three distinct on-off modes), and was equipped with Brembo brakes stamped with the Lexus emblem.[16] Other design features included a four-passenger cabin with carbon-fiber panels, steering wheel paddle shifters, and 19-inch BBS forged aluminum alloy wheels. The vehicle body was lowered by 1 cm (0.5 inches) compared to the standard IS.[17] Noticeable about the IS-F's design are its quad exhaust tailpipes comprised of two vertically stacked dual exhaust pipes on the left and right rear.
