Sports cars automakers have ascended the auto industry’s ladder to become some of the most popular and consumer friendly in the whole world.

Us roads are filled with mainly compact sedans and big bulky pick ups, trucks and SUVs. That's what's mainstream right now in the US, your daily commuter for the average person. A car that would go A to B just fine. But many of us want something with style and the power to go, we prefer cars with a character. Something that will reflect a part of our personality. A machine that is worth remembering for days to come. Lexus is a manufacturer that provides the three key ingredients for the perfect combination - power, style, reliability.  We organized the fastest models and packages that rolled out with the LEXUS logo on their bonnet, Here's our list of :

"The Fastest 9 LEXUS cars !" 

2007 Lexus IS F 80 000$

423 bhp / 5.0L / 0-62 mph in 4.8 seconds / 168mph / 1690kg

The Lexus IS is a series of entry-level luxury cars sold by Lexus since 1998. The IS was introduced as an entry-level sport model slotted below the ES in the Lexus lineup (and outside of North America, the Lexus GS). The IS was originally sold under the Toyota Altezza nameplate in Japan (the word "altezza" is Italian for "highness") until the introduction of the Lexus brand and the second-generation Lexus IS design in 2006. The Altezza name is still used at times to refer to chromed car taillights like those fitted to the first-generation model, known as 'Altezza lights'

For its first F (there’ll be more, rest assured) Lexus presents a V-8 sledgehammer that hurls to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds—fleeter by 0.1 second than an ’08 M3 coupe - is still straining the reins at its 172-mph speed governor, stops from 70 mph in 159 feet, and generates 0.92 g on the skidpad. It also keeps us grinning through hard track laps, even though the frequent fill-ups of premium were necessitated by street-driving economy of 16 miles per. We’ll see what the young ’uns say after March 2008 when the IS F goes on sale at a price not expected to leave much change from $59,000.

Popular lore at Toyota—plus an adventurous company press release—says the IS F owes its existence to its chief engineer, Yukihiko Yaguchi, a 30-year Toyota salt who ramrodded the project through by surreptitiously assigning rogue engineers without company approval. Yaguchi downplays his role, even though the press release specifically uses the terms “ramrod” and “rogue.” What is certain is that the diminutive IS250/350 platform wasn’t designed from the outset to bolt up with the LS600hL hybrid’s 389-hp, 5.0-liter 2UR-FSE V-8, even sans hybrid gear.
