Alyc Keith here, once again, for Car of the Week. As you can see, we’re outside the Halloween store. Tomorrow is Halloween and we need a costume, so that’s why we’re down here. Thanks for tuning in last week. We had 3,500 views. And Cody Hewitt, congratulations, you’ll be coming down here next week to meet Mr. [inaudible [00:00:49] during our shoot of Car of the Week.

Today, we have a 2013 Lexus IS F Series 2, and we know this car inside and out. It has been bought and serviced by Lexus of Calgary. It is a great color combination, white on black. Let’s take a look under the hood.

You’re looking at a 5-liter V-8 engine that produces 416 horsepower with 371 pounds of torque. It’s an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Let’s go take it out for a little drive.

All right, we just looked under the hood and saw the 416-horsepower engine. Let’s have a listen. This thing has some get-up-and-go. Wow, it’s awesome. Just the handling of the car, it handles really well. The pickup is there. And let’s have a little listen to the Mark Levinson sound system, shall we?

I hope that camera picked that up because the stereo pounds. And the odometer is 76,932 kilometers. This car is in great shape. I want you to take a look at the interior when we stop. The black suede that’s on these seats is just phenomenal.

So, when this package first came out, the Series 2, it was a $75,000 package. That was, as I mentioned before, the Mark Levinson system,19-inch wheels, and the navigation system, or the big add-ons to the package. Car proof, as we always talk about, accident-free, one-owner car.

That wraps up our Car of the Week episode this week. There’s really not a lot of these for sale in Western Canada, so I’m sure it’s not going to last very long. I hope everyone has a very safe and happy Halloween. I’ll see you next week.
