Fuji Speedway is the IS F's home circuit, and the shape of its turn one inspired the F logo design.
The IS F was the first Lexus to wear the brand's "F" marque when it was introduced for the 2008 model year. This high performance sport sedan now shares the “F” badge with the LFA supercar. The fun-to-drive IS F brings an exhilarating experience to the line-up with its high performance 5.0-liter V8 and deep, throaty exhaust note.

The AMG 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine generates a peak output of 621 hp and a maximum torque of 738 lb-ft. The use of an all-aluminum body-in-white delivers a drastic weight reduction as the MY13 SL65 AMG is 254 pounds lighter than before. The distinctive front end is dominated by the new "twin-blade" grille with two blade-shaped fins and the lower horizontal bar in the front skirt in high-gloss chrome.
The new 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG luxury convertible

The new 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet luxury convertible
Porsche is doubling the driving fun to be had from the new 911 Carrera by putting a Cabriolet alongside the Coupé.
The debut of the new generation of the sports car classic is being followed only a few months later by the open-top models of the 911 Carrera and 911 Carrera S in the new 911 design.
What the Coupé began with the new aluminium-steel body, the Cabriolet continues with the all-new, unique hood: As a result, the typical 911 roof line is initially retained in its entirety. Even when closed up, the Cabriolet cuts a fine figure. Intelligent lightweight design, even including the use of magnesium in the hood, ensures less weight and more sportiness, lower fuel consumption and greater comfort. With the open-top 911s as well, Porsche has managed to reverse the weight spiral and make the new Cabrio models significantly lighter than its predecessors.
The new 2012 Porsche Panamera GTS 4-door sports car
Porsche has added a number of bells and whistles to the already rather zippy 4-door Panamera Gran Turismo to bring into the world the zippier 2012 Porsche Panamera Gran Turismo Sport, an even-higher performance, sportier version.
Power has been boosted from the 300 hp of the Panamera base version's 3.6L V6 to a distinctly gutsy 430 hp, generated by a 4.8L naturally aspirated V8. This tops the Panamera GTS's sister models, the Panamera S and Panamera 4S, by 30 hp, which will be handy if you ever happen to pull up alongside one at a stoplight. Ha, ha, you shall chortle as you leave them in the dust. Max torque is upped to 520 Nm from 500 Nm.
2012 Audi R8 (Audi R8, Audi R8 Spyder, Audi R8 GT and Audi R8 GT Spyder) review - pictures, features, specs
The new 2012 Audi R8 supercar
The R8, the high-performance sports car from Audi, is a high-tech work of art with the formidable power of its engines, the quattro permanent all-wheel drive and its lightweight Audi Space Frame (ASF) body made of aluminum.
The good everyday practicality and top quality typical of Audi complete the profile of this model athlete.
Body and interior
The forward-thrust cockpit and the engine compartment behind it are key to the proportions of the R8. Large wheel wells and hungry air inlets visualize its potential, while the upright sideblade structures the flank. LED headlights are standard in ten-cylinder R8 models and available as an option for the eight-cylinder version.
