We spent a week with Lexus’ new 471 hp luxury performance coupe, and fell in love. It looks like a concept car, is mindblowingly fast, has sharp-as-a-tack handling, and a decadent interior with the best factory audio system we’ve ever heard. Read our full review on 95octane.
Lexus‘ all-new luxury flagship gets a choice of dramatic interiors, with materials like Kiriko art glass, laser-cut woods, and origami-pleated fabric. Its new chassis handles great, and its 3.5L twin-turbo V6 makes 416 hp, launching it to 60 mph in 4.6s. Full review on 95octane.
We went behind the scenes with Mark Levinson to learn about the audiophile grade sound systems they make for Lexus vehicles. There’s no way to convey how amazing they sound without listening in person, but read on to get a sense of just what goes into making these systems so good.
If Lexus’ latest automotive autonomy feature sounds too good to be true, that’s because it’s way too close to April Fools Day for us to buy it. Still, the idea that you could force annoying drivers to move out of your way remotely should come standard on all modern vehicles.
A one-of-a-kind luxury boat from automaker Lexus, designed to provide its passengers with an extravagant seafaring experience. It’s powered by a pair of 5.0-liter V8 engines from their RC F, GS F and LC 500, producing a total of 880hp, and has a carbon fiber composite hull.
Lexus’ latest exec sedan offers much more aggressive styling, drops 200 lbs, and gets a new, stiffer chassis, and a 415 hp twin-turbo V6. Luxe interior options include a Mark Levinson 3D surround sound system, and 28-way power seats with heat, cooling, and shiatsu massage.
Get behind the wheel of Lexus’ F Performance line cars, like the 467hp RC F coupe and GS F sedan. Drivers can attend a half- or full-day session and learn techniques in autocross, skidpad, track driving, and more, all under the supervision of professional drivers.
We were very fortunate to get the opportunity to drive the awesome new 467 hp Lexus GS F sport sedan, but our ride-along with racing expert Scott Pruett was the real highlight of our visit to California’s Chuckwalla Raceway, an off-the-beaten-path track that’s worth a visit.
Lexus UK worked with design agency NVDK, Laser Cut Works, and Scales & Models to create a full-scale, driveable replica of the Lexus IS sedan, using from 1700 laser-cut pieces of cardboard. We’re guessing it’s not as much fun to drive as the actual IS, but it’s still really cool.
