Lexus has unveiled its revised IS-F at the Paris motor show.
The model has been given a tweaked 5.0-litre V8 for 2011 to ensure it complies with the Euro 5 emissions regulations.
Power in the updated performance model will remain unchanged at 417bhp. As with the current model, the IS-F will accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds before going on to a limited top speed of 168mph.
The revised flagship model gains revised headlamps with LED daytime running lights and a new optional finish named ‘Starlight Black GF’.
Inside, the IS-F gets a new instrument panel design in which the rev-counter, speedometer and gearshift indicator are repositioned.
The speedometer and rev-counter are the same size in the current model, but the facelifted version will see the rev-counter take pride of place in the centre of the instrument panel.
Further changes include new dark-silver fibre inserts, revised front seat design for improved driver support and blue instead of white stitching for the leather upholstery.
The 2011 IS-F will make its debut at the Paris motor show this month and will go on sale in Europe soon after. See all the latest Lexus reviews, news and video
