Super-Sleek Body Virtually Win d Noise

While retaining the of the original and second-generation LS 400s, the new generation top of the range Lexus a more muscular presence. The exterior offers a lower coefficient and exceptional aerodynamics. To out the aerodynamics of the LS430, Lexus tested the prototype in the same tunnel used in the development of legendary bullet trains.

Fine tuning of airflow bumpers, fenders, and mirrors, and the floorpan, contributed to the LS 430’s level of aerodynamic efficiency. the angle of the radiator grille was fine tuned for optimum The result, a clean shape generates virtually no wind as it cuts its way through the air, the LS 430 even quieter inside its benchmark predecessors.

In addition, the Cd helps keep fuel at much the same level as of the LS400 even though the new has an increased engine capacity and and has a higher profile than the

To increase interior room in the LS Lexus lengthened the wheelbase by but kept overall length the Compared to the latest arrival in the an externally larger car (Mercedes-Benz the LS 430 offers more front and headroom, slightly more volume, and a larger boot.

In building the new LS 430, Lexus a supercomputer to digitise the precise design of the body. The unit of used was 1/1000 of a millimetre, ten more precise than the 1/100 of a millimetre unit by other car companies. The result is stamped sheet metal for fit and assembly quality.

While has won the J.D. Power and Associates Vehicle Dependability Study in its market – the United – every year it has eligible, the company made it considers 57 substantial improvements for greater durability.

In Search of Luxury

Before designing the LS Lexus designers and engineers luxury and craftsmanship outside the realm. They visited hotel rooms, including and royal suites for national and surveyed first class cabins and luxury jet interiors. also observed high-end and watch makers and guitar at work.

This all in the search for perfection in a luxury environment and feel to the new

Additional adjustments for the seat include dual controls and adjustable cushion for greater thigh support.

The combination wood/leather steering features controls for the audio which includes as standard an single-feed six-disc CD changer. The new CD location allows for a larger glove box, and expanded storage includes compartments in the console and under the front

Its 417 Nm of torque and torque curve outclass larger-displacement engines, thanks in part to Variable Valve with intelligence (VVT-i). eliminates the traditional compromise low-end torque and high-rpm by optimizing valve overlap the engine’s speed range. tuned the LS 430 engine to produce torque across a broad speed range, making the car more responsive under all conditions.

The LS 430 introduces the industry’s torque-activated powertrain control, governs the throttle, based not on pedal position, but on vehicle and engine rpm, as well. climbing a hill, for example, the will increase the throttle to provide more power the driver having to floor it.

The car will behave more because unwanted up-shifts and are avoided, and the driver does not to keep depressing and releasing the pedal to maintain a set pace varying road conditions. with the increased performance, the LS 430 V8 produces very low levels of emissions.

Taking Safety To The Level

The LS 430 features a strong cell protected by front and crumple zone structures. The Restraint System in the LS 430 adds variable-force front airbags and curtain front and rear Sensors determine the force which to deploy the front helping to maximize occupant performance.

The front seats and outboard seats feature pretensioners with force

Lexus believes in giving the the technology to help avoid on the road. The LS 430 includes Brake Brake Assist interprets a hard push of the brake as emergency braking and, if the has not stepped hard enough on the pedal to activate the anti-lock system, Brake Assist the applied braking pressure.

Vehicle Skid Control first introduced by Lexus in on the LS 400 helps maintain traction under demanding conditions by and helping to correct for understeer and The VSC system integrates traction to help limit rear spin on slippery surfaces. VSC and Brake Assist employ the and actuators of the standard four-channel brake system (ABS).
