Rumor: Lexus IS-F Evolution coming in summer 2010, pricing to start at $250,000

Participants from a recent Lexus IS-F event confirmed that the harder, lightweight IS-F Evolution will make its debut in the summer of 2010 with prices starting around $250,000.

Sources say that the IS-F has gone through a serious weight-reduction program with extensive use of carbon-fiber. Total weight has been reduced by 308 pounds for a total of 3,410 pounds. The Lexus IS-F Evolution will also feature a 417-hp V8, carbon brakes, carbon interior and an upgraded aggressive front and rear.

The Lexus IS-F Evolution will see a limited production of just 500 units most of which will be sold in Japan. No word on how many units will be allocated for the international markets.
