2007 Lexus IS 350 3.5 petrol from North America
Dragster from Lexus
Extremely underrated car.
It looks fantastic, very well built, top reliability, well designed cabin. Performance is incredible, blows anything classified as 'fast' into oblivion. Instant power on tap - nearly electric-like. Caution required even in the dry with RWD, as you can spin the wheels very easily. Terrible in the snow, but that's expected of any RWD car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Man, I couldn't agree with you more. Automatic; throttle response is fantastic. Granted, have only rode it 2x, just got it, but that was a main point. Cannot believe only 204hp, acceleration off the on-ramp was so cool I had an ear-to-ear grin. Sound was right on, then on the highway, making an additional acceleration to 65+, I could hardly hear the engine. The anti-noise quality of my car is great, to me. I did not like the 2006 noise level. My choice that day was an Acura RL/Lexus IS 250 AWD. I chose the IS.

If you thought the IS250 was fast, it's nothing compared to the IS350!
It'll eat you alive with fuel expenses, but save you the repairs you'd usually put into a BMW.
