Well said. The LS 400 is exactly what the doctor (literally) ordered back then and honestly it doesent seem like Lexus has quite cracked the present formula yet with a market conquest as it had.

Car and driver thinks that a new V8 is on the way. But I know Toyota and this could turn into another high power GT-86 scenario. But the rumor of a twin electric turbo V8 is tantalizing.

Liberty Walk rapes cars and turns them into junkyard trash. What they do to Mustangs is horrific. This is a disgusting affront to the gorgeous LC.

I fully agree. However it seems to be the taste of the "a lot of money but not so much taste" people nowadays...

Better looking than the Liberty Crap but the stock vehicle still looks so much better.

All there is to say. The LC is such a futuristic and good looking car, I doubt any tuner can improve it.

Oh sweet Jeezis! The only people who will think that's good looking are the import tuner boys and the only ones who will buy it are import tuner boys whose meth sales operation hasn't yet been curtailed by the DEA.
