I have a high-pressure job & like my car to be a low-pressure, traveling sofa, so when I tested various cars (Audi A6 & A8, Mercedes 550, BMW 7 series) the LS 460 stole the show. My priorities are quiet cabin, smooth ride, great sound system and plush interior, so I'm very happy with my choice.
Before I purchased
this car I talked to a number of people who owned one and generally everyone gave it an "A" grade.
Now that I have purchase mine, I AGREE COMPLETELY, with the exception of IT NEEDS MORE HORSEPOWER to keep competitive with the Mercedes S550 and BMW 750 series.
I always enjoy getting into my new Lexus LS460 to drive it, and on top of my enjoyment I have received numerous compliments.
We have owned several LS Models since 1989 when the Brand Was Born
. The 2013 Base and Model "L" would win the "Grammy" and
the "Oscar" . The Automobile is a Work of Art .
The redesigned 2013 & 2014
The "soul" of the machine enthralls the driver , each time you enter the motorized vault , and sit in the automotive pleasure , as the world can be seen outside , but not heard . Effortlessly listening to the "Levinson" , or one's own thoughts . Mechanically and Simplistically
LS is at a New Automotive Pinnacle.
Lexus used to have digital clocks which were easy to read. Now there is a analog clock which is difficult to read primarily because the clock hands are the same color as the background which pretty much renders it useless when driving.
Must say that the LS460 F Sport is much better choice then the regular model in its class.
Before buying this LS, I drove the 750IL, S-class and A8.
I find the LS Sport is the best choice overall in terms of looks, feels and comfort. The exterior of this the F Sport in white makes the 2014 S-class, Audi A8 or 750IL looking ugly.
Lexus has done an outstanding job in the new body stye and the reason why I bought the F sport model.
especially in the F Sport Model. It rides like butter in any condition.
For the money and it's Lexus I wouldn't think twice.
I owned the CL550 AMG 2010 and traded in for this F Sport in Aug 30 and it has been a joyable ride so far.
Highly recommended car.
