As Playboy Playmate Kendra Wilkinson and Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett prepare for their wedding this summer, photographers have noticed that she’s driving a Lexus IS while shopping and planning.

While no one has reported on why Wilkinson chose the entry-level sports sedan, used car buyers in New York could be enticed by the model’s engine choices, which range from a 204 horsepower V6 to a 5 liter V8 in the IS-F that propels the car to 60 miles per hour in less than 5 seconds.

More demure trims are available for those who may want more fuel economy, especially for buyers considering a used Lexus IS 250 in New York.

The 2007 model can still make it to 60 mph in under 8 seconds, according to manufacturer’s estimates, but the EPA estimated fuel mileage is about 21 miles per gallon.

Compared to other cars in its class like the BMW 3-series and the Audi A4, Edmunds.com editors say that it “excels when it comes to comfort and feature availability.”
