The Nurburgring obsessed guys over at bridgetogantry.com have caught what they describe as a mystery Lexus IS featuring a fair bit of camoflage. After a quick history check, it appears this could well be the facelift for the second generation model which has been on the market since 2005.

The low resolution photos and the black clad camouflage make details difficult to make out. The covering around the front headlights leads us to believe they will get a slight redesign, but the part that interests us most on this model is that bulge we see on the hood. Could the IS be the next model in the range to benefit from the Lexus' Hybrid Synergy Drive? We can rule out the possibility of a higher-spec model above the current top of the range 306hp IS 350, the IS-F fills this void more than adequately.
