Thumbs up Toyota LExus IS-F - Love at first sight

Highlights

Its 5.0-liter direct-injected V8 engine delivers over 350 lb-ft of torque, 400 HP
0-to-60 time below 4.9 seconds
World’s first eight-speed direct sport-shift transmission with paddle shifters that snaps quickly and crisply between gears, upshifting within a tenth of a second.
new torque converter lockup control allows the engine’s power to be directly relayed to the transmission
High-performance Brembo brakes
19-inch forged aluminum alloy wheels
quad exhaust tips.

Looks like it shared BMW's design facility. And how do they proclaim to use that 8-speeder during normal use?
