The Lexus LS 460 F SPORT is already a Sporty Vehicle offering a class apart Luxury and much more, then why has it received makeover?
Lets check out what’s in for us with the new Lexus LS 460 F SPORT.
Its the all new Lexus LS 460 F SPORT, which has received makeover from the TRD(Toyota Racing Development), TRD reports claim that they have upgraded the big saloon with a new body kit, which makes it look more aggressive than ever!
The upgradation includes, a chrome finished spindle grille, front splitter, tall and dark side skirts, and a big rear diffuser kit, and to complete this upgradation they also installed a sport exhaust system, with a classy 20-inch wheels. Sadly this whole kit is an upgrade for the F- Sport package, which is only available in Japan.
A quick reminder on the Engine Specifications of the new Lexus LS F SPORT, which consists of four Versions, namely : LS 460, LS 460L, LS 460 F SPORT and the LS 600hL.
The first three engines will come with a 4.6-liter, V8 engine which would be mated to an 8-speed sequential shift automatic transmission, and the RWD(Rear Wheel Drive) delivers 386 hp (288 kW) and 367 lb-ft (487 Nm), while the AWD(All Wheel Drive) gushes out 360 hp (268 kW) and 347 lb-ft (470 Nm). Throwing some light on the Hybrid Model, which uses a 5.0Liter V8 Engine with 389 hp (290 kW) and 385 lb-ft (521 Nm) works hand-in-hand with a CVT and two electric motors and a Ni-MH battery, providing a combined output of 438 hp (327 kW).
There aren’t any reports that claim whether U.S would be benefiting from this upgraded model, but yes we can surely tell you one thing and that is for the TRD body kit and the quad exhausts, the cost is ¥504,000 ($6,404 USD) and the 20-inch wheels are ¥604,000 ($7,668 USD) alone.
With this we can definitely say that there would be many enthusiast out there, who have been looking out for something like this for their Lexus, but at the same time many customers would be driven away, because with such an upgradation, the price tag gets hefty too. Anyway lets take a look at the Picture.
