Japanese luxury brand Lexus is getting into the high-performance game with a new moniker, F. The F designation will be added to the IS sports sedan first. The IS-F will be unveiled at the Detroit auto show in January along with a separate Lexus exotic sports concept.

Lexus is following the pattern of BMW’s M and Mercedes-Benz’s AMG models by adding significant performance upgrades to their biggest sellers. The rumored power plant for the IS-F is a 400+ hp V-8 borrowed from the upcoming Lexus LS 600 Hybrid. We’ll let you know as soon as we get more information.
