With high-style photography, chic furniture and fun neon flair as its background, the new 2013 LS Luxury sedans had their world debut at the “Lexus Laws of Attraction” exhibit in San Francisco July 30, 2012. The event featured more than 500 invited guests from the San Francisco arts and design community who shared their thoughts via #Lexus Attracts on twitter.
The 2013 LS line-up includes the LS 460, LS 460L, LS 600hL hybrid and the first-ever LS 460 F SPORT. LS 460 and LS 460L are available in RWD and AWD. The LS Hybrid is available with a full-time AWD system.
The all-new LS 460 F SPORT combines a more aggressive exterior with a unique sport interior featuring F SPORT seats with larger bolsters, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters and genuine aluminum trim. With a sport tuned air suspension that has been lowered 0.4 inches, a Torsen® limited slip rear differential (RWD model), Brembo six-piston caliper brakes and 19” forged wheels with summer or all-season tires, the LS F SPORT promises to be the most engaging LS ever.
The entire 2013 LS lineup is refined with dynamic, fresh styling that reflects the bold new face of Lexus. The aggressive spindle grille gives the new LS a greater road presence and stronger brand identity while heralding a significant improvement in driving dynamics, responsiveness and handling.
Lexus’ new design philosophy was the inspiration for the “Lexus Laws of Attraction” exhibit, which included exclusive photographs by world-renowned fashion photographer Ellen von Unwerth that feature prominent couples with the Lexus flagship vehicle.
“The ‘Lexus Laws of Attraction’ photography exhibition showcases Lexus’ dedication to design,” said Mark Templin, Lexus group vice president and general manager. “Craftsmanship is at the core of the company’s design philosophy, which is expressed in our new spindle grille and driver-focused interiors that integrate modern refinement and intuitive technologies. With our passionate commitment to world-class craftsmanship and now a relentless pursuit of style and design, people can’t help but be attracted to the new LS.”
