For something even more exotic, the new Lexus LS 600h F Sport is big on style, big on performance and outstanding in luxury and refinement. For numbers of driving enthusiasts, the arrival of a new Lexus model is always an exciting time. Lexus cars are every bit as good as Mercedes Benz and BMW equivalents – particularly in the LS and F Sport range, and they seem to offer a fresh appeal and a styling edge that pleases motorists with an eye for quality and beauty.
There is no doubt about it, the new Lexus LS 600h F Sport presses all the right buttons. And as if to agree, the Lexus LS 600h F Sport provides the best premium technology you’ll find anywhere. Zoned air conditioning, powered heated leather accented seats for front and rear occupants, a powered Moonroof, an advanced satellite navigation system and a Mobile phone additions3 system to keep you ahead of the competition.
Wrapped up in some of the nicest highlighted leather seats you’ll ever sit in, you can relax and enjoy all that the Lexus LS 600h F Sport has to offer. Luxury trim is standard, and this means that even the gear knob, door inserts and floor coverings are covered with delightful premium materials and textures. Front and rear spaces even have a power accessory socket to run up-to-date electronic devices on the move, or parked up. Remote audio controls send commands to the sound system which has no less than 19 speakers for inspiring sound quality and driving entertainment. You can equip the Lexus LS 600h F Sport with rear seat DVD entertainment.
This is an exceptionally comfortable large sedan that loves to eat up the miles. Hop out of the big LS 600h F Sport after a six hour drive between main cities, and you’re left feeling fresh and ready to tackle the afternoon board room meeting with energy to spare. Even after a short time behind the wheel of Lexus LS 600h F Sport, you are left with the impression you’ll never be late for the board meeting again! Underneath the chiselled bonnet lines lies an immensely powerful, unruffled V8 that just loves to be prodded. Naturally aspirated, the all-alloy quad-cam V8 breathes easy and pumps out 327 kW of sublime acceleration and high speed performance. Hybrid technology means that the 5-litre engine has two engines – if you like. Using the two power units are a bit like harnessing the clean green source of hybrid energy in one unit, and then when more power is needed, the lean, mean raw power of the petrol motor is sourced. The electric motor provides a gentle, supremely quiet start and take-off in normal conditions. Step on the gas, and the petrol motor provides maximum power levels – adding to the electric motor’s instant torque. At low speed or in reverse the V8 shuts down to save fuel and maximise efficiency. The driver can even select EV (Electric Vehicle) mode for using the electric motor only for speeds up to 40km/h.
For cruising, there are few cars that can match the quietness of the car. You can whisper in the front seats, and I’m sure you’ll have a good idea in the back as to what has been said. A solid, assured composure on the road isn’t just put down to the fact that the car is over two- tonnes in weight. An agile flavour tingles the taste buds of the driving enthusiast. Slippery surfaces are mastered by Lexus’s Torsen limited-slip centre differential and an excellent permanent AWD system provides enriched traction and cornering capability. This is a big luxury sedan that feels superbly quick, and I’m guessing would turn in some hot lap times given half a chance.
