sgCarMart – Lexus cars were conceived and built to surpass European luxury standards. It didn't come easy, with the firm putting up a 3,900 strong team and more than US$1 billion in R&D fees, all in their 'pursuit of perfection'.
And it was the LS flagship sedan, which first wore the Lexus badge at the 1989 North American International Motor Show (NAIAS).
More than 20 years now, the brand has achieved significant success as a luxury automaker. More recently, the Japanese carmaker has undertaken a great risk, setting off to make their cars livelier - a departure from the relatively inert image that they have portrayed since their debut. This sets many in wonder if the new direction would still work with its 'age-old' fans (pardon the pun).
The earlier GS range scored with the new recipe. The more dynamically honed sedan charms with its sharper looks and greater driving involvement, earning tall accolades from the motoring industry around the globe.
The LS is the next model slated to receive the transformation, and also the first LS to feature the 'F Sport' treatment.
