Lexus IS F To Drive At Speed World Challenge

Written by tonks on July 21, 2008

Lexus IS FDRC Motorsports has produced their own IS-F racecars – which they will use to compete in the GT class of the SPEED World Challenge. The newly re-named IS GTF will be powered by a V8 4.7 liter engine that will be able to push out 510 horsepower. This engine will be connected to a six-speed transmission.

The first of these cars will make its official entrance during the Mid Ohio with Jeff Altenburg weekend and will have last year’s SWC Touring Car champion behind the wheel. The second car will be driven by Robb Holland and will be making its maiden run after the race at Road America.

Both cars are scheduled to run the remainder of the race season. If you want to watch the new IS GTF in action, SPEED will be airing the race on Thursday, July 24 at 1:00pm (EDT) following the Touring Car race.
