2013 Lexus IS-F Cabrio Spied With Very Little Disguise - Or Is It The New 2014 IS?

Lexus IS-F Cabrio has been spotted testing near company’s technical center in Germany. The hot IS-F Cabrio wears just very little disguise on the front bumper, hiding huge air intakes.

At the back is a big fixed rear spoiler and typical IS-F twin exhaust pipes on both sides. Just like the standard IS Cabrio, the high-performance IS-F Cabrio has the retractable hard top.

Under the bonnet is a high-revving 5.0 litre V8 engine that packs 416bhp and is mated to an eight-speed gearbox.

Update! Looking closely at one of the pictures taken inside the garage you will notice in fact the next-generation Lexus IS hiding beneath the hot IS-F Cabrio.

What gives it away is the all-new visible rear suspension. This new rear suspension is a revised version of the one found under the new 2013 Lexus GS. So instead of the hot IS-F Cabrio we are looking at first test mules for the next-generation IS series…
