Lexus is finally going turbo
Yes, we know that Lexus has already put a tentative toe into turbocharging with the NX, but this is the full, dive-right-in moment.
Choosing an engine for your flagship car is not undertaken lightly. And, with the LS’s history of almost invincible engines, the new twin-turbo, 3.5-litre V6 has a lot to live up to. There’s 415bhp and 442lb ft on offer – more power and torque than the V8 it replaces – which means this land yacht should go from zero to 60mph in 4.5 seconds.
