Nice article with some interesting technical details:
- Tilted radiator
- Lexus-sourced Torsen differential. This is somewhat of a mistery since in the current lineup only the IS-F has a torsen, and that certainly would be overkill. Other option would be to use the old IS300 Torsen. This unit is 205mm vs 208mm for the IS-F, I guess well find out soon, but both should be pretty overengineered for a paltry 151lb-ft car.
- They mention the FA20 to be based in the FB, wich I no longer believe to be true, as Old Greg has mentioned its probably based on the FA16.
- 50 litre fuel tank!
