NEW LEXUS LS: PICS AND DETAILS
Lexus reveals more about the sporty face of its new limo range-topper
the new GS range.
The tweaks go deeper than just visuals, however; Lexus says it has improved the driving dynamics, achieved better sound insulation and created more sophisticated and effective preventative safety systems.
In terms of dynamics, new production line techniques have improved torsional rigidity, while the LS's Adaptive Variable Suspension has what Lexus describes as 'a new four-wheel interlock control', which controls roll, pitch and heave vibration at all four wheels simultaneously.
F Sport models, meanwhile, include a ride height drop of 10mm, six-piston Brembo calipers at the front wheels, paddle shift gear levers, and even a Torsen LSD.
Oh, and there's also the de rigueur addition of a sound generator in the engine that amplifies intake noise into the cabin under acceleration...
Exact performance specs and pricing of the Lexus LS 460 and LS 600h are yet to be announced, but the cars will go on sale in the UK later this year.
