    Fresh-Faced LX570

    Auto shows tend to excite enthusiast because we've come to expect new model announcements from nearly every manufacturer. Last week's concept coupe announcement notwithstanding, we're pleased to meet the new Lexus LX.

    In addition to the revised headlights and grille, the 2013 LX will also feature Lexus Enform 2.0, the next-generation entertainment system that features Facebook, Bing, Pandora, OpenTable, Yelp and MovieTickets.com applications.

    Of course, how you choose to use the new LX is up to you...

    2012: Year of Special Editions

    Let's face it, some model years are just more special than others. We're particularly excited for 2012. Lexus has generously spread the love across the model range. Let's look at some of our favorite Special editions this year.

    ES350 Special Edition

    You can get this car in Stargazer Pearl (Black) or Starfire Pearl (white) with, for the first time in a Lexus, saddle (brown) leather. It comes loaded with navigation, brown walnut wood steering wheel and shift knob, 17" liquid graphite wheels, and heated and cooled front seats. This is, perhaps, the most elegant ES ever offered by Lexus.

    CT200 F-Sport Edition

    We've mentioned the CT F-Sport on Kaizen before now, but this is our first chance to show if off in a stunning new color: Nebula Gray Pearl. It is also available in Starfire Pearl (white) and Tungsten Pearl (silver). It comes loaded with 17" liquid-silver-finish F-Sport wheels, F-Sport anti-sway bars, F-Sport lowering springs, blue-trimmed F-Sport floor mats, and an exclusive, Ocean Blue NuLux, eco-friendly interior. Proud owners may choose to spring for the matching Tumi luggage. We will definitely have a few of these allocated to our store, so call in your order now- they're sure to sell out quickly.

    LS460 Sport Special Edition

    Here's the heavy hitter of the bunch. This car takes everything from the svelte LS460 Sport and kicks it up a notch. The Sport Special Edition comes loaded with Obsidian (black) paint, two-tone black and beige leather interior with contrasting stitching, matte, dark-brown ash wood trim, 19" forged wheels, paddle-shifters, sport grille and exterior trim, navigation, Brembo brakes, Intuitive Parking Assist, power-assisted trunk, sport-tuned air suspension, Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS), sport front seats, heated rear seats, power rear sunshade, and more. If you're a now-compromises sort of person, this rare beast is just the ticket.


    What Has 640 Horsepower and Starts with L?

    Well, you have two choices: a Lamborghini and a Lexus...

    The LP640 is Lambo's top bull, but recent spy photos reveal one secret Lexus prototype, a variation of the LS tuned by Toyota Motorsport GmbH, equals its engine output. Just for reference, that's a whole lot more power than the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG, Audi S8, Porsche Panamera Turbo, or BMW Alpina B7 packs.

    The Lexus LS TMG Edition was recently spotted lapping the Nurburgring. With conspicuously-flared fenders, hood vents, and a striking body kit, this LS looks like nothing else from the Lexus factory. And it means business- 0-60 in 4.2 seconds business.

    Here's what The Lexus Enthusiast has to say about it,

    "Basic similarities [to the IS-F engine] aside, this engine has been bumped up significantly, with 642 HP (650 PS) and 523 ft·lbf (710 Nm) of torque, all blasted out at a 9,000 RPM redline — numbers that could suggest a twin-turbo setup. All this power means a top speed of 200mph (320km/h) and a 0-100 time of 4.2 seconds, or alternatively, “absolutely insane”.
