About Lexus GS460
The Lexus GS is the flagship of the Lexus brand. The GS was designed as a mid-size luxury sedan, halfway between the compact and premium classes. Until 2011, it shared the platform with one of Toyota's older models. The Lexus GS460 replaced the GS430 in 2007 for the 2008 model year with a new 4.6L V8 (1UR-FE or 1UR-FSE), mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and rated at 342 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque. The maker claims it can do 0-100 km/h in 5.4 seconds.
The V8-powered GS460 has an active suspension, just like its predecessors. This helps the car stay on the road better. The GS460 has a smooth, well-balanced ride that is almost the perfect mix of a sports car's responsiveness and a passenger car's comfort. The Lexus GS460 is one of the few mid-size luxury sedans with a chassis that can be adjusted to improve grip on corners. In Comfort mode, the ride is smooth, while in Sport mode, the damping changes a lot. With the optional stabilizer suspension, there is also a lot less roll when turning corners. The 18-inch tires on the Z-Class make it very easy to drive on the road.

It has added a number of new technological parts to the Lexus GS460 for 2010. These include built-in Bluetooth, iPod, and USB ports, an updated GPS system with voice recognition, and a few other small changes. The optional navigation system can now recognize your voice and give you information about the weather and traffic in real-time. The company gives the Lexus GS460 active side mirrors and the Safety Connect emergency call system as standard parts. There are also anti-lock parts with brake assist and traction control. As you might expect from a Lexus, the interior is made of high-quality materials. Real wood and aluminum accents give the interior a high-end look.
The only new part of the 2011 GS460 is the brake assist. The 4.6-liter V8 engine endows the GS460, providing relatively quick acceleration that should satisfy most buyers. Estimated fuel consumption is 17mpg city/24mpg highway and 20mpg combined, which is above the class average. Other available parts include a rear spoiler and an active power stabilizer. Both of the parts improve the driver's sense of control when cornering and reduce the amount of body roll. The GS460 takes heritage to a new level, delivering the quick performance that leaves rivals in the shade.
