Lexus has celebrated its global 30th anniversary with a stunning special-edition of the latest generation of its first model line, the LS flagship sedan – introducing the LS Inspiration Series – strictly limited to 10 vehicles in Australia.
Leveraging the opulence of the LS Sports Luxury, the LS Inspiration Series debuts a unique 20-inch Dark Vapor alloy wheel design and Khaki Metal exterior colour to distinguish itself from the rest of the LS range. Other colour options include Sonic Quartz, Liquid Metal and Scarlet Crimson.The interior gains exclusive combinations of chestnut semi-aniline leather-accented trim and nobel brown fabric door texture, complemented by intricate walnut Lexus-insignia laser-cut ornamentation.
A unique highlight and perfect finishing touch for the LS Inspiration Series is the installation of a Kiriko pattern ornamentation panel across the passenger side of the dashboard, featuring an engraved “30th Anniversary” signature with blue illumination.
The Inspiration Series is available in LS 500h featuring the world’s first Multi Stage Hybrid System, incorporating a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine and advanced electric motor, and LS 500 with the Lexus 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine.
Benchmark technology includes a 12.3-inch centre display, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, satellite navigation, voice control, DAB+5, 23-speaker Mark Levinson® audio system and twin 11.6-inch rear entertainment screens.
Heated and ventilated front and rear-outboard seats with massage function, 22-way power-adjustable rear seats with passenger-side ottoman, electric rear sunshades and rear cooler box (LC 500 only) provide driver and passengers the ultimate in luxury travel.
As part of the update, all variants further debut revised Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS).
The air suspension system now incorporates a redesigned independent extension and compression design and altered damping force switching to achieve flatter and smoother body motion behaviour.
For the LS 500 only, the front mounts on the rear suspension member are now liquid-filled, replacing the previous rubber mounts in order to further reduce vehicle body vibration.
The LS 500 also exclusively benefits from a smoother starting action for the petrol engine’s Stop Start system.
