Well according to the lexus website ...a is300 has 215 hp/218 tq and weighs 3255lbs ..runs a 0-60 in 6.8 sec

ludes are 200hp/156tq and weigh around 3000lbs..not sure about the 60 runs but i think i've heard 6.9-7.0 before...

i think it'll be a drivers race

Auto IS300 vs. Auto Lude - IS300 wins

Auto IS300 vs. 5spd Lude - Lude wins

5spd IS300 vs. 5spd Lude - IS300 wins

This is, of course, on a closed course with highly advanced robotic drivers that are programmed to drive identical to one another :hehe

lexus horsepower to weight ratio====15.13

Prelude horsepower to weight ratio==15.00


Lexus has alot more torque but Honda revs higher. Rwd will be an atvantage on the launch.

its definately a drivers race. id say its all in the launch. if the IS gets the lude off the line, the lude cant catch up. if the lude gets a perfect launch down, then he might be able to fend off the IS for a while.
