We had plenty to rave about when the 2018 Lexus LS flagship sedan was released earlier this year, but now we want to zoom in on one specific new model of this elegant vehicle. The 2018 Lexus LS 500 F SPORT is designed to take the already elegant handling and premium features of the standard model and deliver an even more engaging driving experience.

2018 Lexus LS 500 F SPORT Chassis
While the 2018 Lexus LS 500 will share many mechanical features of the standard LS 500 (including the all-new 415 horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 engine which offers 442 pound-feet of torque and premium fun), its chassis is designed to deliver a more sporty and breathtaking driving experience. Tuned for engaging handling, the 2018 Lexus LS 500 F SPORT features Lexus’ latest Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) technology. This system can fine-tune braking, suspension, steering, and powertrain response to deliver a custom driving experience.
The 2018 Lexus LS 500 F SPORT will also feature a 10-speed automatic transmission and be available with the 2018 Lexus LS hybrid powertrain option.
F SPORT Grille and Other Styling Highlights
In addition to powerful powertrain options and a responsive chassis set-up, the 2018 Lexus LS 500 F SPORT will also boast unique interior and exterior visual cues. Some highlights include:
- F SPORT-exclusive front seat with Ultrasuede
- The unique front grille and sporty enlarged side grille
- Grille-patterned seating surfaces
- Scored aluminum trim and available Circuit Red interior
- Exclusive Ultra White exterior color
- F SPORT badging on fenders
