The history of Lexus
This premium brand of Toyota made its debut 25 years ago and the mission was to become the best car in the world. In many other countries Lexus is regarded as top notch as far as quality is concerned even when weighed against top German vehicles. Yet in South Africa people choose the German brands in bigger numbers.
This is confusing as there is no argument that Lexus is among the best made vehicles on our roads. The top-of-the-range LS460 limousine is regarded as: ‘in pursuit of automotive perfection”. Those who experienced it say it was very almost achieved.
What does Lexus LS460 have to offer?
Though it is not as fast or sharp-handling as some of the Germans and Jaguars which were aimed at top-level executives (government ministers?), but few cars are as elegant and luxurious yet laid back, as the LS460.
Very comfortable seats and the interior are fabulously leather upholstered. The air suspension dismisses most of the road deficiencies with barely a hiccup. The eight-speed auto transmission is so good that neither driver nor passenger can tell when gears are changed. It also sports the ultimate in NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) suppression technology.
The inside of the LS460 is a calm place to be. Together with its GS sibling, the LS radiates a Zen-like peace. You wont notice the world outside, as it is magically sealed off and kept out. You’ll be cruising in a bubble.
If you can afford this 285kW V8 limo with all its luxuries included and not optional, at slightly over R1.3 million, the silence and peacefulness will be alluring. When you have nothing to prove and are not bothered to flash anything, but you have worked long and hard to earn what you have, perhaps you should allow yourself this indulgence. I mean, why on earth not?
