Had a Lexus put a hurtin on me

I'm not sure what kind of Lexus, but from the body lines it looked to be a newer model and it was a sedan. I was cruising out in the middle of RURAL Mississippi on my way to Memphis when this Lexus caught up to me. He slowed down when he caught up to me so I "jumped" the truck to let him know I was interested. He must have been waiting because as soon as I let off the gas to even up with him he took off. I chased but I couldn't even stop him from pulling. He got substantial lead on me and then he slowed back down. We got next to each other again and I gave him a thumbs up, he returned the gesture. We then slowed down to about 20 MPH he yelled, "hit it" so we took off agian. I shut down at 110 and his back bumper was about even with my front bumper. We didn't get a chance to try anything else because he turned off, but that little Lexus could move. I went into those expecting to win, but was handed a surprise.

The IS350 is pretty quick. They also have the "F" model with a small V8 stuffed in it.

My 08 Infiniti G35 sedan is pretty damn quick, switch off the VDC and it's really fun. Big change driving my F250 7.3 on 38's one day and then driving my G35 the next. Stock the G35 is 306 flywheel HP, and very quick.

It wasn't the IS, I'd recognize one of those. I didn't know they offered one with a V8 though, that's pretty slick.

I'm not 100%, but I Googled those two and the car I encountered looked similar to that gs350

I wouldn't feel too bad about not winning. Those cars are really fast and your big heavy truck keeping up is a win in my book.

I had a supercharged g35 that had 550 to the rears and damn was she fast. It was kinda weird going from that to a leveled 350 on 35s.
