In late October, the redesigned 2013 Lexus LS went on sale with a bolder look and tighter handling than ever before, but its most aggressive trim, the all-new LS F SPORT, is just arriving at dealers this month. Part of the luxury automaker’s broader push to appeal more to the hearts of driving enthusiasts, the F SPORT model of Lexus’ flagship sedan features a number of performance and styling upgrades.
Outside, the 2013 Lexus LS 460 F SPORT gets a special mesh design for the brand’s new spindle grille, while exclusive front and rear bumper fascias, 19-inch dark-graphite wheels and round LED fog lights also differentiate the model from the rest of the LS lineup. The upgrades are more than just cosmetic however, with a lowered sport-tuned air suspension, a Torsen limited-slip rear differential and high-performance Brembo brakes bringing significant improvements in responsiveness and handling.
“It’s one thing to find a luxury sedan that can coddle its passengers, but it’s quite another to find one that can get their blood pumping at the same time,” said Vincent Liuzzi, general manager of Lexus of Watertown, a Greater Boston Lexus dealer. “The Lexus LS F SPORT does both; it’ll have you looking forward to otherwise mundane trips to the grocery store and eagerly anticipating weekend joyrides.”
Drivers will find plenty that appeals to their inner-enthusiast in the LS F SPORT’s cabin, whether it is the bolstered seats, the leather-wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters or the aluminum trim. All the while occupants can stay connected and entertained with a huge 12.3-inch multimedia display for the Lexus Enform App Suite, which offers voice-activated control of apps like Pandora, iHeartRadio and movietickets.com.
Though the production LS F SPORT is already a certified head-turner, a customized version of the car recently proved there is room for owners to up their game in the aftermarket. Debuting at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show, which ran Oct. 30 through Nov. 2, the Lexus PROJECT LS F SPORT by Five Axis maintained an intimidating presence on the floor, wearing angular creases on its flanks and taking a lower, wider stance.
Known for its expressive body kits, specialty tuner Five Axis lived up to its reputation with the PROJECT LS F SPORT, using an aero conversion kit with prominent fender vents behind the front wheels, a broader front bumper and a trunk-mounted spoiler. Those athletic alterations were driven home elsewhere by 22-inch custom alloy wheels and an AirRunner TC-5 Air Suspension System that brought the car even closer to the pavement.
“The enticing style lines of the stock Lexus LS F SPORT are more than capable of making a definitive statement on the road, but for those diehard car lovers, the sky is the limit when it comes to modifications,” added Liuzzi. “Even at the production level, Lexus is certainly not shying away from daring designs these days, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Five Axis has inspired a few ideas for future models.”
