FOR SALE - Lexus IS-F 5.0l V8

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

After an initial bit of interest I've decided to sell my IS-F. This has been an awesome car but I've owned it for a few years and it's time to move on.

2008 Lexus IS-F 5.0 V8

Slate Grey/Black Leather

93,000 miles (car in daily use)

Full Lexus Service History

Over 1 year Lexus Warranty remaining

Item Condition:

The car is in excellent condition with no dents or dings, only the odd stone chip that you'd expect for a car of this age. (please see photo's)

It was previously owned by a forum member who had it for 4 years. I will have owned it for 2 years in February and bought it from a specialist near Hemel Hempstead, Boss Motors.

I put a refurbished set of original IS-F wheels on it 3 months ago but still have the original set of genuine wheels which I'll throw in if I get the asking price (these are rare and usually expensive when they come up for sale).

In my time it’s had new discs and pads all round, tyres 9 months ago (Continentals), a new water pump, a new headlight and gearbox oil cooler under warranty. The headlight filled with water and the cooler and water pump had a slight leak, all common issues I believe.

MOT is due in March and next service due August. It had the big 100k service last year so this should be a small one.

Being really honest there's some slight curbing on the wheels on the left hand side but I've touched this up (see photo's, it's barely noticeable), and the exhaust tips are a little loose on the passenger side, again a common issue.

I don’t like modifying my cars but the only thing I have added is an HPS intake elbow and genuine Lexus F-Sport carbon fibre gear knob. I still have the originals which will come with the car.

Private plate NOT INCLUDED

Price and price conditions:

£15,000

Please bear in mind it has the Warranty which you can't get from Lexus on this age of car anymore plus I'm willing to throw in a full set of genuine IS-F wheels.

Extra Info:

The car was an ex press car and was the actual car used on Top Gear (GU08 VSN)

I also found this Pistonheads review by the previous owner:

Thanks! It’s been a joy to own and I’ve loved the Lexus ownership experience. Absolutely fantastic cars!

Saw this the other day and it's an absolute stunner! Unfortunately I'm just not in the position to buy it yet, otherwise I'd have had it there and then. 

Good luck with the sale Ben, let me know how it goes 👍

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
