Lexus LS 500 F Sport to make New York International Auto Show debut

Lexus will launch the all-new LS 500 F Sport at this month’s New York International Auto Show.

This new sports saloon follows the standard LS 500 and hybrid LS 500h, which made their respective debuts in Detroit and Geneva.

This soon to be revealed model is the performance-orientated option of the trio, and similarly is based on an extended version of the GA–L platform – the stiffest that Lexus has ever developed.

Thanks to this platform it promises enhanced handling, a smooth ride and a noise-free cabin.

A teaser image of the rear end is all that has been seen of the F Sport so far. The model is expected to gain sportier aesthetics both inside and out, and will feature either the 409bhp 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol or the 345bhp V6 hybrid engine under the bonnet.

The 2018 LS 500 F Sport will be displayed on the Lexus stand at the 2017 New York International Auto Show from April 12. The show will be held in the Javits Convention Center, New York.
