The F-Sport line is getting a big new addition in the shape of the 2018 Lexus LS. The flagship four-door wears a new F Sport grille, a design that took five months to perfect each and every one of the 7,100 individual surfaces that make up the grille. 

Inside, the car gets a number of F Sport upgrades including an exclusive front seat, a unique upholstery pattern, and scored aluminum trim. The interior also gets an exclusive steering wheel, aluminum pedals, and ultrasuede in the seating and headliner.

The chassis of the car will benefit from the latest generation of their Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management system to better optimize the car's ride and handling. An F SPORT Handling Package will also be available that adds Variable Gear Ratio Steering, Active Rear Steering, Active Stabilizer, and a sport-tuned air suspension. 

The LS F SPORT will be available in the LS500 and LS500h models in 2018.
