Top-of-the-range Lexus gets a limited slip diff, plus other improvements

A series of improvements has been rolled out across the Lexus IS range, and the halo model IS-F gets a Torsen limited slip diff. Despite the fact that the 417bhp 5-litre V8 remains unchanged, the revised car gets around the Fuji International Speedway 2sec a lap quicker than the previous car according to Lexus’s own figures.
Lesser cars in the range can get the IS-F look with a new range of F-Sport packages, which are similar to Audi’s S-Line accessories. Upgrades include bodykits, interior upgrades and 18in alloy wheels.
