Lexus designed an all-new 3.5-litre V6 engine specifically for the new 2018 LS 500, using twin turbochargers developed through the company’s F1 technology.
This new twin-turbocharged system has been adopted which not only helps achieve high driving performance, excellent fuel economy and emission regulation conformity but also provides quiet operation befitting the flagship model.
The V6 offers V8-level performance – 416 Hp and 600 Nm of torque – paired with the first-ever 10-speed automatic transmission in luxury sedan.
“Since the first model, the LS has been evolving a smooth, high-quality driving performance that is passed down from generation to generation,” said Lexus marketing, Ebrahim K Kanoo senior manager Ayman Shehadeh.
“Aiming for the ultimate in refinement and exhilaration, as well as environmental performance, the all new LS 500 has achieved exactly that with the help of Lexus’s ambitious designers and the new twin turbo engine.”
The flagship sedan embodies Lexus’ evolution as a luxury lifestyle brand committed to surprising and delighting its customers and was designed to be the brand’s latest global icon, available in more than 90 countries.
In addition to a 12.3-inch navigation display, the LS can be fitted with an optional 24-inch colour head-up display – the largest in the world – that projects a variety of key vehicle information.
Nearly all elements are upholstery-wrapped, and a high level of craftsmanship has been applied to the finer details, resulting in an elegant finish with a sense of depth, in addition to a comprehensive array of safety features to protect its occupants, such as 14 SRS airbags, Blind Spot Monitor, Vehicle Stability Control, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, and Brake Assist, among many others.
