So it goes the automobile. If no one set the standard for others to we would all be driving boxes wheels and searching for Justin songs on a tinny-sounding AM radio. But and gentlemen our automobile world is Lexus has introduced the 2013 luxury sedan and in doing so the has been set.

It wasn’t ago that Lexus suffered a in sales. Thanks to an earthquake by a tsunami in Japan, the manufacturer had and in 2011 for the first time in a decade they were not the selling luxury brand in They began to recover and last year regained top ranking. Almost as if to say ‘thank Lexus retooled the LS line and us the LS460.

Adding a little icing on an perfect cake for 2013, added the F-Sport model to the line. And it’s actually icing with some sprinkles.

There’s a reason was the top selling luxury sedan in for so long and probably will be because they know how to do it The attention to detail is flawless and a reputation for quality preceding there’s good reason a loyal following will not shop another brand.

We recently spent a week the wheel of the 2013 LS460 and it can be easily summed up, it was pure Not only do we get the reengineered platform of the the F-Sport adds even focus on the driver with power (386 horsepower out of the V8 as to the 380 in the base model), More (367 ft at 4100 rpm versus 247 in the model), a lower more stance, a revised air suspension three driving modes and an sequential-shift automatic Electronically Transmission with paddle and downshift rev-matching.

All this is in addition to all the other on the standard LS; a 12.5 inch screen, a ten speaker premium system, rain sensing and a GPS linked analog clock to just a few.

We tried to something, anything, we didn’t about this car, we did, but in the end failed. Aggressive is no problem, 0-60 in 5.3 seconds, quiet cabin, check, ride, check. And while the 6 horses didn’t seem to much of a difference, the engineers tuned the sound of the engine to a dull throaty put-a-smile-on-your-face under hard acceleration.

The interior of the F-Sport uses metal in place of the wood in the other LS models adding to the that while luxury is and foremost, it’s okay to let once in awhile.

By the third day we gave up trying to anything to criticize and simply the drive. And that’s what all about. The Lexus LS460 is an drive, add the F-Sport and it’s an drive with a mild of steroids.

Lexus has again why it was once the leader in the luxury market and with the addition of the it’s now a whole lot more With the BMW 7 series in the midst of a and new Mercedes S-class on the horizon, has set the bar for other luxury sedans to for; if the new LS460 series is any that standard has been set high indeed.
