Lexus tells us the 2014 IS 350 F SPORT AWD can go from 0-60 in 5.7 seconds and top out at 131 mph, but what's its 1/4-mile performance like on the mile-high Bandimere Speedway drag strip?

The IS 350 was taken on three runs using different driving modes each time. Here are the results:

  • Normal Mode: 15.78 seconds @ 92 mph
  • Sport Plus Mode (TC off): 15.64 seconds @ 93 mph
  • Sport Plus Mode (TC on & no brake-torquing): 16.00 seconds @ 93 mph

There's the data ... now for the entertainment. Click on the video below to see that LFA-inspired tachometer needle swing as the IS 350 makes its 1/4-mile runs.
