L99 vs Lexus IS-F

So my buddy pulled the trigger on the Lexus - , I was worried he would get a CTS-V then it would be hopless for me ........still, I think the Camaro would edge out the IS-F, at least in a straight line. What do you think?

IS-F

0-60 in 4.8

1/4 mile in 13.2

Looks like a drivers race, but how much did he pay for it?

Expected Pricing: $57,000

Lol you could get an Hennessy for that price

Check some other sources fow 1/4 mile times. The Stock IS-F is capable of trappping ~114mph, meaning high 12's will be the norm. Stock L99 has it's work cut out for it....

According to Insideline, the LS3 camaro has the edge by the track numbers. Every other site however has the IS-F in the lead.

The L99 has cut high 12s, which leads me to believe it would be a drivers race.

Driver's race, but the lexus definitely has the upper-hand.

Not really. They both seem to be on average mid-low 13 second cars.

The below are just average test times. Hero runs for the IS-F are much lower....

IS-F:

Motortrend: 12.7 sec @ 113.4
http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...fications.html
Car-Driver: 12.7 sec @ 114 mph
http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...take_road_test
Road\Track: 12.8 @ 113.3 mph

http://www.roadandtrack.com/tests/ca...us_is_f_page_3


Fastest trap speed I have seen for an L99 = 108.7...

Mod UP!

Oh I see. I got like two sources saying like low 13s. Apparently the IS-F is a little quicker.

yeah, IS-F is a bit quicker but the difference can be made up with a couple bolt-ons, or a mistake on his part (assuming you have a perfect run)

Must be the shorter gearing or something - they put out 417 HP and 371 LB-FT. They also have skinnier 255's out back........but then again there is that 8-speed transmission.

What would it take for an L99 to gain the edge? Im thinking full exhaust, intake, tune......should that suffice?

I've driven both, obviously both very fast... IS-F takes off quick and gets up to speed fast, but you'll never use that 8th gear. Camaro has a better seat-of-the-pants thrill when you accelerate- not sure why as the IS-F has 16hp over the L99.

I liked the IS-F alot. It feels taught and fast, and even sounds respectable, but Camaro feels faster and sounds better

Even if I wasn't a Camaro fan, it would still be the Camaro every time. Same power, twice the soul, half the price.


And that's my impartial opinion.

I just looked at Lexus's website and their own claim is 0-60 in 4.6, 1/4 in 13.0 ... same as what GM gives for the Camaro.

It weighs a bit less (~150 lbs), and it does have a bit more aggressive gearing. But it also has less torque and skinnier tires. My gut tells me those factors should essentially cancel out. It also looks like the tranny is a dual clutch auto, that might account for its edge over the Camaro.

I think he meant used, he bought a 2008 for $43k...sounds about right.

Well, IMO he is driving a 'Chick' car anyway.

But, if you guys were to race 100 straight times, all things being equal, I think he beats you 75 of them.

Just put a few simple bolt-ons and you turn those tides.
