Q602B is on a distinguished road
Default Lexus New TT V6

Impressive numbers:

2018 Lexus LS and LS500 Photos and Info ? News ? Car and Driver

To debut in the all-new Lexus LS500. If it makes down to the IS/RC, I would expect for the new engine to outperform the Q50/Q60 VR30.

Finally a proper LS sedan that does 0-60 in the 4's! You know an even faster variant will come.

Nice looking whip and looks like they come to play with some power on that V6. Finally Lexus is pushing some serious power with the reputation of reliability. But man does that front grille look horrid..

I just noticed the detailing of the LED's in the headlights. I like it a lot.

The only thing I'd want is a higher revving engine. Red line at least from the photos looks a little low.

I think the criticism has been unfairly harsh. I like that Lexus is being bold in their design and I have always had an affinity for Japanese cars and design.

I'm really excited that Lexus is finally going FI. I want to see some 700 hp Lexuses in the future. I want to see the Japanese really giving the Germans some competition. They are a great country. To me, the are like the best parts of France and Germany. They have a brilliant cuisine (France) and can make awesome cars (Germany). Oh, and they have good fashion too.

When they first started doing a mild spindle look I liked. They keep taking it to more ridiculous extremes.

Its very polarizing. I guess it's better to have a controversial love/hate look than to languish obscurity.

I think it looks like crap. "Crap yes...but sometimes people love crap."

Really? Lexus has to stop hiring retarded stylists, and the management idiots that approve/direct them. The embarrassment of the vehicle owners is only exceeded by my having to look at them, on the road.
