Awesome Lexus

2017 Lexus IS

2017 Lexus IS

The popular luxury sedan gets a visual facelift for 2017, with a bolder and more aggressive front end, highlighted by huge new air intakes, and sharper lines overall. Available with a 241hp 2.0L turbo 4, a 255hp or 306hp 3.5L V6, paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

A production version of the LF-LC concept coupe, the rear-wheel drive Lexus LC 500 packs a 467 hp V8, a 10-speed automatic transmission, and a bold and luxurious design inside and out. Its dynamic, athletic styling is the pinnacle of Lexus’ recent design renaissance.

Hot Laps in the Lexus GS F

Hot Laps in the Lexus GS F

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.

The Cardboard Lexus

The Cardboard Lexus

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.

Lexus Hoverboard

Lexus Hoverboard

After teasing us, Lexus has revealed their working hoverboard. It uses the superconductor tech we featured a few years back, and a custom-built magnetic hoverboard park, so it won’t be in stores anytime soon. Still, it’s pretty awesome.

2016 Lexus IS 200t

2016 Lexus IS 200t

Lexus will offer its sporty IS sedan with a 241hp, 2.0L turbo-4 engine that beats out the current 2.5L V6 by 37hp and 73 lb-ft. of torque. With a rear-wheel drivetrain and improved brakes, the new model should be a blast to drive.

Lexus Slide Hoverboard (Teaser)

Lexus Slide Hoverboard (Teaser)

Lexus claims it has developed an honest-to-goodness hoverboard. The Slide is equipped with a liquid nitrogen reserve and magnets to attain frictionless movement. Don’t play with our hearts Lexus. Let this be legit.

Between the extravagant supercars, hypercars and megacars at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Lexus showed off an unconventional and eyecatching little ride – a futuristic ultra compact 2+2 designed for quick jaunts in the city.

Lexus RC: Play Time

Lexus RC: Play Time

To sell us on their powerful new RC coupe, Lexus has decided to entertain us with some daft RC drifting. But in this case, we mean R/C, as in a 1/10th scale remote-controlled car, driven with precision by R/C drift expert Drift44.

2016 Lexus GS F

2016 Lexus GS F

The Lexus GS F takes the same awesome 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated V8 found in the Lexus RC F, bestowing the spacious and luxurious GS sedan with 467 horses, and a torque-vectoring differential for impeccable cornering.

2015 Lexus RC F Liquid Platinum

2015 Lexus RC F Liquid Platinum

The new Lexus RC F sports coupe looks especially striking in this metallic platinum finish, along with body-hugging sport seats in circuit red leather and carbon fiber trim. Of course, the 467hp 5.0L V8 burbling beneath the hood doesn’t hurt either.

Lexus LF-C2 Concept

Lexus LF-C2 Concept

The Lexus LF-C2 Concept is a luxury 2+2 roadster. Its mix of curves and sharp lines and edges is no doubt polarizing but will be familiar to Lexus fans. The car’s leather interior is lit by its LEDs and touchscreen monitors.

Lexus RC / RC F: Driven

Lexus RC / RC F: Driven

After much anticipation, we’ve now experienced both the 467hp Lexus RC F and 306hp RC 350 F-Sport coupes, and all we can say is that Lexus has knocked it out of the park. Head over to 95octane for full details of our test drive.

If you’ve been considering an IS F, hold off. Wait for the LFA-inspired RC F, a sexy new sports coupe, with a powerful 5.0L V8 with 450+hp and 383+ lb-ft. of torque, an 8-speed direct-shift transmission, and a torque-vectoring differential.

Amazing in Motion: Swarm

Amazing in Motion: Swarm

Lexus commissioned KMel Robotics to build and choreograph an army of custom flying drones to create this amazing and entertaining flying robot ballet. It’s too bad they had to cheat with VFX. Learn how they did it here, here and here.

2015 Lexus RC Coupe

2015 Lexus RC Coupe

The RC takes much of what we liked about the 2014 IS series and packs it into a dynamic and sporty 2-door coupe. Available as the RC 350 with a 3.5L V6 and the RC 300h, a hybrid with a 2.5L 4. We’re hoping for an F-Sport edition too.

2014 Lexus IS 350 C F Sport

2014 Lexus IS 350 C F Sport

The cabriolet hasn’t had the visual overhaul of its sedan brethren, but it has the advantage that it can drop its hardshell top in warmer climes. Powered by 3.5L 306hp V6, it hits 60 in a respectable 5.8 secs, and gets 27mpg (hwy).

Lexus Drift Roulette

Lexus Drift Roulette

We were recently in Vegas checking out the Lexus F-Sport line when this happened. Yes, that’s champion rally car driver Ken Gushi playing a little game of roulette by drifting in a Lexus IS F. It was even more fun inside the car.

2014 Lexus IS Series

2014 Lexus IS Series

We already saw the IS 350 F-Sport and now we’ve driven the entire 2014 IS lineup on the track. The changes aren’t just external. Both IS 250 and 350 handle more aggressively than past models. We like the 3.5L RWD models best.

2014 Lexus IS 350 F SPORT

2014 Lexus IS 350 F SPORT

Prior to its official launch, Lexus released images of the redesigned IS F SPORT, with an aggressive new grille and front bumper, and a sporty, ergonomic interior. IS 250 and 300h hybrid models coming too.

2013 Lexus LS 460 F SPORT

The 386hp V8-powered 2013 LS continues Lexus’ move to an agressive new look, and we’re most excited about the F SPORT with 19″ wheels, Brembo brakes, and sport-tuned suspension.
