Yeah, seems like the IS-F updates brought it right neck and neck with the M3.

Though, I am not a fan of the IS-F especially the 8 speed auto, but looks like Lexus overall is on a roll. Their absolutely stunning first supercar LFA's 4.8 Liter V10 beat the Ferrari 4.5 Liter V8, GTR V6, LP570-4 & R8 V10, SLS AMG V8, GT3 & GT2 RS flat-6 etc. for "Evo UK best engine of the year".

There is nothing in the world like the Lexus LFA. It is more special and intriguing than the 458 and demonstrates an extraordinary level of passion and commitment. Bespoke and limited edition, it is also a genuine supercar that can scare the pants off you. This is mainly thanks to it's extraordinary 552bhp 4.8-litre V10 that does everything a Carrera GT's does and then goes completely mad as it closes in on 9500rpm. Its uncompromising ride adds to the challenge, and it was generally agreed that it would have been a bit of a handful up on the moors,
but we were beguiled. "It's a beautiful thing, all the details, and it has the integrity and functionality of a Lexus. Feels like a step up from everything else here," said Meaden. "Very, very special," said Metcalfe. Thank you, Lexus.
