While aerodynamic styling gives the IS F a signature look, more importantly, it
results in a balanced reduction of lift to help produce increased control at
By recognizing the unique secure code transmitted from your key fob, the SmartAccess
system allows you to unlock and open your vehicle's door and trunk without having to remove your key from your pocket or
handbag. The system also activates an entry lighting feature that helps to illuminate your path of entry.
Puddle lamps, door handle, cabin interior and push button start/stop all
illuminate sequentially for ease of entry.
The SmartAccess system may interfere with some pacemakers or cardiac defibrillators. If you have one of these medical devices, please talk to your doctor to see if you should deactivate this system.
The engine immobilizer is a state-of-the-art anti-theft system. When you
insert your key into the ignition switch or bring a SmartAccess fob into the
vehicle, the key transmits and electronic code to the vehicle. The engine
will only start if the code in the transponder chip inside the key or
SmartAccess fob matches the code in the vehicle's immobilizer. Because the
transponder chip is embedded in the key or SmartAccess fob, it can be costly to
replace. If you lose a key or SmartAccess fob, your Lexus dealer can help.
Alternatively, you can find a qualified independent locksmith to perform high-secruity
key services by consulting your local Yellow Pages or by contacting
Intuitive Parking Assist
The available Intuitive Parking Assist can help the driver navigate the vehicle into tight parking spaces. Ultrasonic sensors located on the front and rear bumpers are designed to detect objects nearby. Audible and visual cues help the driver know when the vehicle is getting closer to the object, including many that may not otherwise be seen.
Bi-Xenon™ High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps are brighter than
conventional halogen headlamps, use less energy and last significantly longer.
In addition, an auto-leveling feature helps to ensure that the headlamps remain
pointed at the proper angle. These headlamps also include LED daytime
running lights, which use less energy while adding a dramatic air. For
additional safety, the IS F comes with LED brake lights. Since they
illuminate faster than standard bulbs, they can help give the driver behind you
more time to respond in emergency situations.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
A millimeter-wave radar sensor allows the available Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
to maintain your selected speed. This system also enables you to follow the vehicle in front of you at the same pre-set speed. A car icon on the information display shows the selected following distance.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is designed to assist the driver and is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving practices. Please see your Owner's Manual for important cautions and instructions.
Wide front fenders and 19-inch forged alloy wheels
an aggressive DTM-style racing look to the IS F.
19-in performance tires are expected to experience greater tire wear than conventional tires. Tire life may be sustantially less than 15,000 miles, depending upon driving conditions.
BBS® 19-inch forged aluminum wheels
 are both stronger and lighter than equivalent cast wheels
and help to improve handling and acceleration via reduced unsprung weight and
rotational inertia. BBS forged wheels are found on top-level racing cars around
the world, including Formula One®.
19-in performance tires are expected to experience greater tire wear than
conventional tires. Tire life may be substantially less than 15,000 miles,
depending upon driving conditions.
Stainless-steel exhaust manifolds with integrated catalysts help improve
durability and minimize the exhaust system's weight.
