The Japanese based automaker Lexus had some negative advertising after the IS-F model has been crashed during the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon.
Our statement which said that where ever there will be exotic / powerful or new cars there will also be some crashes too is once again highlighted by this incident which took place at the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon. A Lexus IS-F has been crashed during a demonstration at the Japanese automotive event, and even if the damages brought to the vehicle weren’t that significant, the incident itself was enough to hit the web as news. Details on how the crash happened are limited but it seems that the driver of the IS-F has hit the gas by mistake and made his ride stop into row barriers.
As a reminder, the Lexus IS-F is powered by a 5.0 liter V8 engine which is allowing the Japanese vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds, before reaching a limited top speed of 270 km/h. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission (SPDS – Sport Direct Shift), which is allowing the gear change to be made in just 0.1 seconds. The average fuel consumption of the Lexus IS-F is 11.4 liters every 100 km and the CO2 emissions stand at 270 g/km.
