While the idea that the Lexus IS-F could be a better car than the R35 Nissan GT-R may not be a universally held one, it certainly seems to be the case for the boys at AutoWeek. Is this merely an attempt to grab some attention? At risk of their credibility; not likely.
Interesting that the same car that has received mixed reviews?some extremely positive and others not so?could not only be straight up brilliant, but also more kingly than the current media darling, the GT-R. While the reviewer recognises the GT-R as the faster car, he describes the IS-F as a more satisfying drive. It's been a generally agreed upon opinion that the IS-F is a harsh ride, so that's an interesting new perspective.
