Lexus LS460 (2007)

by Chris Bishop,reviewed December 2007

Galling prices, depreciation dips, sizeable thirsts and monstrous maintenance costs are mere monetary irritants for limousine owners.
Pampering, innovation and prestige are decisive. And Lexus lacks for nothing on those fronts: better equipped than its peers, full of safety aids, comfortable and hushed. 
 
Despite its complexity the controls can be mastered in moments. Practicality is near perfect, the warranty is strong and that build is priceless.

Changes from the radical eight-speed gearbox are virtually impossible to pick, the V8 is smooth, powerful and surprisingly throaty and the brakes bear up admirably.

The centre rear spot and boot are tight, the 19-inch wheels thump and create noticeable noise and its handling, while rewarding, is not top-shelf.

Overall though, prosperity provides ample rewards.
