Lexus building only 1,000 IS-F for U.S. market

For those of you looking to get your hands on one of the unholy organic IS-F sedans, you'd better act soon, as Lexus has decided to limit production of its 400-hp sports saloon to a paltry 1,000 units, or so says AutoWeek.

Autoweek reported the news in two issues back, although production numbers weren't mentioned in the Lexus press release when the IS-F debuted in Detroit.

As a reminder, the Lexus IS-F sedan is powered by a 5.0-liter V8, matched to an eight-speed, paddle-shifted transmission, good for sprints to 60 in a tic under five seconds. We've already discussed the aesthetic, um, challenges that the IS-F presents, but if BMW doesn't decide to offer a four-door version of its new M3, enthusiasts will at least have another option.
