2008 Lexus GS 460 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 8A)


My black GS460 was built in the Spring of 2008 and after 6 years it performs like it was new.
This car is so smooth and powerful it reminds me of the 12-cylinder BMW 750i.
It's not as big, of course, but it offers a level of smooth, powerful acceleration that is rarely experienced.
It handles very well without the somewhat excessive road-feel of a BMW, and the cabin is very quiet.
Once a year or so I consider trading for another car but I haven't found anything as compelling as this one.

Best Features

4.6 liter V-8, cooled and heated seats, navigation, XM radio, very good looking aluminum wheels, driver's information system.

Worst Features

It'd be great if it didn't require premium fuel, but that seems to be the price of admission to the world of high-performance cars. Also, the controls for the navigation and radio could be improved, and most likely have been in the new design.
