The high-performance IS is expected to put out more than 400 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque from its 5.0L V8. The engine is mated to the world’s first eight-speed “direct sport-shift” transmission that can be manually shifted by two paddle shifters. The IS-F should reach 0-60mph in less than 4.9 seconds.
A coupe version of the car is also expected.
