自1989年第一台LS發表以來，Lexus對於日系品牌造車的匠心精神以及細節上的堅持就有所發揚，不論是在乘坐的舒適性或是動力輸出的平順性和耐用性，在市場上都有獲得相當程度的肯定。而既上次在日本富士賽道試駕過全新LS 500h之後，今天將以非油電混合動力的LS 500為主軸，並同LS 500h比較其外觀、內裝、動力性能、以及實際試駕的感受。 LS 500搭載的是一具V6的3.5升雙渦輪增壓引擎，最大馬力可以達到421匹之譜，相較於油電版本多出了62匹，扭力表現可達61.2公斤米，變速箱與油電版本的模擬10速有所區別，搭載的是一具正10速的變速箱，因此從帳面數據以及硬體上的差異可以看出LS 500在性能方面的表現確實較為出色。不過實際上路試駕的操控感受，以及對於這兩款車型究竟該如何抉擇與取捨，詳情請看影片分析。 更多影片在Go車誌官網： http://www.buycartv.com/

Another week another severely neglected and rusty item goes onto the bench to get brought back to life! This week the item in question is a SEVERELY NEGLECTED MOTORCYCLE WHEEL that has certainly seen better days. Now before i begin the description i would like to take a moment to say this wheel is NOT going back on the road so please dont flood the comments section saying that i never used new bolts for the brake disc or torqued them down to the required lbs/ft or removed or replaced the bearings etc etc you get the idea. Also let me know what you think of the editing on this one, ive tried to cut it down and speed up the more boring sections to keep the overall time down as i know lots of you guys wont have a good hour and a half spare to watch a wheel being refurbished at normal speeds. If you think its to fast and choppy please let me know and ill revert to the longer and less choppy cuts. Anyway..... First thing is first the obligatory before close up and as you can see from it the wheel is in a very poor condition, sitting in a muddy corner for years and spiders living in the centre hub have certainly made a monster out of this once lovely wheel! The first job on the list was to get in on the tyre machine and get the beads broken to allow the shoe of the machine to lift the tyre off, then while it was clamped in the machine i thought this is a perfect time to remove the brake disc bolts while its clamped down to a solid surface as these bolts can be a right pig to remove if they have been over tightened and flooded with thread locking compound. To my surprise they broke loose fairly easily. Next on the list was getting it on the workbench and getting it torn down completely first out were the cushions for the drive sprocket (actually in very good condition for the age and the weathering they have been through!) then off the the old valve neck and wheel weights. The brake disc and bolts were then put in a DEOX C bath while i worked on the rest of the rim. To clean the surface grime and muck from the rim CONCEPT CHEMICALS MASTER CLEANER was used at a low dilution ration then agitated aggressively with a VIKAN brush after soaking for a few minutes it was time to pressure wash it clean and get a look at what i actually had to play with. It wasn't too bad but definitely did require a lot of attention to get it looking its best again! Out came the PAINT PANTHER for the next stage which was to remove the old nasty paint to reveal the lovely diamond cut alloy edges and shot peened hub and spokes, Not being a fan of polished metal it was at this point i decided on an all paint finish but at this stage i wasn't sure about colour. After a bit of wire brushing with the dremel and a good hand sanding it was time to get it masked up and into primer. First came 2 light coats of U-POL ETCH PRIMER to give the high build primer a solid base to grip onto.The HIGH SOLID HIGH BUILD PRIMER went on in three coats with sufficient time left between coats for maximum build. After that was dry a bit of wet sanding was required mostly in the centre of the wheel to eradicate the shot peening marks so that the rim would have a uniform gloss finish when done. PREPARATION IS THE KEY TO A FANTASTIC FINISH! For doing the base coat and lacquering it is necessary to make some sort of rig so that you can get at both sides of the wheel instantly, if you only try to paint one side of a wheel and then flip it over to get the other side all you end up with is one side that looks passable and the other that looks shockingly bad! Before i could begin painting it was necessary to do a few touch ups with a little aerosol primer where i had to sand quite far down to get a uniform smooth finish after that was done and dried it was time to spray my colour choice REPSOL ORANGE After the base and clear was done i took the mad notion to run a single pin stripe round and im glad i did i really like the way the silver pops out from the REPSOL ORANGE. Then it was simply a case of cleaning up a few bolts and re-assembling the wheel. If you like what you see and have any ideas for the channel please let me know in the comment section.

The 2018 Lexus LS 500 sedans don’t reach for the same performance limits as the LC coupes, but there’s ambition in every line.
Days for sedans seem numbered. Luxury buyers flock toward tall ride heights, forsaking a crowd of competent four-door sedans so good that we'll remember these as halcyon days.
The 2018 Lexus LS bows on that crowded stage. For its breakthrough moment, the LS breaks down what it’s stood for in the past. The pursuit of perfection gets dialed back, while the pursuit of engine sounds, funky crystal trim, brown paint, and 10-speed transmissions hits full throttle.
It steams ahead in three different versions: as the Lexus LS 500 in rear- or all-wheel drive; as the LS 500 F Sport; and as the LS 500h hybrid.
The style assigned to the new LS isn’t quite as successful as that of the LC coupe that nominally shares its platform. The LS shape grows longer, more tapered, more glassy, and more gently outrageous. It stakes out territory new to Lexus, not necessarily new to the rest of the luxury realm. The cabin does that more effectively. It chucks balance and temper out the window, and dresses to kill in horizon-spanning lines, outre light and dark hardwoods, aluminum, and even quilted fabric and cut glass.
The LS has two of Lexus’ most advanced powertrains, but performance excels more in the straight-ahead direction. A new twin-turbo V-6 pulses with 416 horsepower and runs it through a 10-speed automatic with a smart head on its shoulders. On the alternative route, an older V-6 with new lithium-ion batteries and electric motors and an ingenious transmission doles out 354 hp, very quick acceleration, up to 33 mpg highway, and too much amplified engine noise for our taste. Both can be fitted with air springs and adaptive shocks and exotic steering hardware, and with them the LS has remarkable range in its road manners. Still, it’s biased toward lots of wheel travel and its steering doesn’t have much feel, on center or otherwise. An F Sport edition tames the springy feel and doesn’t induce much harshness, despite its lower-profile run-flat tires and big 20-inch wheels.
The LS cabin’s grown, and with no short-wheelbase model on the horizon, it’s on par with its luxury rivals. The acquired-taste styling of the cabin aside, the LS has 28-way adjustable seats, plenty of space, and an expansive back seat where available executive seats can stretch out, airline-style, while a touchpad governs climate and audio controls. There’s a chauffeur-driven market in mind here, and on a map it looks a lot like China.
No crash-test data exists yet, but the new Lexus LS has blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, and forward-collision warnings. Surround-view cameras are an option, along with pedestrian-detection alerts and a widescreen head-up display. Lexus fits the LS with beautiful blond wood and tan leather if you want, or rich mocha tones, or a Louboutin-inspired red-and-black scheme. A 23-speaker, 2,400-watt audio system delivers rich fidelity, but we’d chuck the LS infotainment system for something simpler if we could–but Lexus doesn’t offer Apple CarPlay or Android Auto compatibility.
