On the heels of a successful debut in 2007, the 2008 LS 460 incorporates few changes. The car is still available in either the base LS460 or the long-wheelbase LS 460 L model, and the L now offers an optional $2,985 Adaptive Variable Air Suspension package that constantly adjusts damping rates to provide the best possible blend of comfort and handling. The system is automatic or can be adjusted by the driver. The option also includes 19-inch wheels, upgraded brakes, and variable-ratio steering, which optimizes steering control based on the car's speed. A new color, Opaline Pearl, is available on both models. Base prices increased by $500 to $61,500 for the LS 460 and $71,500 for the LS 460 L.
Ultra luxurious and loaded with high-tech amenities; smooth, powerful V8; excellent interior ergonomics and comfort; strong value for the money.
The 2008 Lexus LS 460 and LS 460 L offer buyers the superb build quality of Toyota, the luxury and comfort of Europe's finest sedans, and a level of technological sophistication not found on most vehicles in this class. While the base cars are equipped with enough standard luxury items to satisfy most discerning consumers, optional equipment ups the ante considerably in the competitive luxury sedan segment.
