Well the IS-F is something that gets the blood flowing. A 5.0L DOHC engine dont right. 400hp is nice, but the factory suspension, brakes, and styling is pure sex. I like to see this car trigger a GM to kick it up with a GXP G8 to make it interesting. But if the car is in the 40k range, ill be surprised. Every IS series car ive built on the lexus website lands in the 40k area. Im thinking a 60k car. But then again, its a lexus, with lexus pricing, luxury, quality, and precision. If a GXP G8 was to be released with a Ls3 and upgraded equipment; its still prolly wouldnt be in this IS-F's league (handling and luxy feel).
As for the LF-A, that car prolly be in the 100k range. I do find it unusual that toyota/lexus is playing the game with N/A larger displacement engines. I was expecting V6s with S/C or turbo induction, like most japanese companies are doing. It seems in the last part of this decade that all automakers are trying to get in the big three's ball game.
