It is set at 390 hp.
Where did you hear that ? Most publication I have read said anywhere between 400 to 450 Hp. Considering that the smaller engine in the Lexus LS460 produce 380 hp, the 5.0 liter engine in the IS-F could easily produce 450 hp without much of a sweat.

I read that somewhere on the net. Now I'm seeing the 450 and 500 hp number throwin' around again.

The 2009' CTS-V will probably be this segments benchmark as far as sedans go.
#128 of 151 IS-F Arrival at dealership

So Lexus has given us a bone and told us to look out for the IS-F at the Dealerships ( Northern Virginia, Lexus Eastcoast) on or about 14 January 2008 ( give or take 7 Days)!!!! Along with this great news they also told us there will be 6 exterior color to choose from, 3 interior colors, and a Basic, Middle and Ultra Option Package available. They also told us that we don't know if we'll get all the colors, or interior colors, or Option Package's in this area ............ more to come on this later. They also told us to get our orders in order as fast as possible since the first Year production will be a Limited number and the "first come first served" allocation process will be in effect. So if you have your order in great!!!! If you don't then you might want to think about it quickly.
Oh yea and lastly the boy's from Lexus said it would be around $60 to $64K +TTP to take one of these home.......
Stay tuned and I'll post whatever information I can when I recieve it.

Is the IS-F available as an AWD?
#130 of 151 IS-F in AWD????
Jun 11, 2007 (12:21 pm)
The best sources at Lexus say "NO" ....... it's simply a question of Performance!!!! At 400+ HP an AWD platform would be counter productive, In simpler terms it can't handle the Horses..... we'de have to tune down the Horses and that would be counter productive to the Performance aspects of the IS-F..........
Sorry, the 2008 IS 250 will still be offered as a AWD Model.

Tell that to Lamborghini, Porsche and Audi. They seem to put a great deal of horses into AWD just fine.
