The car that put Lexus on the map has landed at this year's Detroit Auto Show with an all-new look that is a striking departure from the fourth-generation model. Onlookers will be greeted with a new rendition of their now signature spindle grille that sits in front of an all-new 3.5L V6 twin-turbo that produces 415-hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. 

Add to that a 10-speed transmission, rear-wheel-drive (AWD available), a 0-60 time of 4.5 seconds, and you've got yourself an efficient street yacht with some serious grunt. A focus on Japanese culture and craftsmanship was also a big focus with interior lighting that emulates Japanese lanterns and woodwork inspired by Shimamoku wood patterns. 

Active Noise Control keeps the interior extra quiet while an optional 3D surround Mark Levinson sound system with in-ceiling array speakers fills the car with huge sound. Other available features include 28-way power seats, Shiatsu massage, and a 24-inch color heads up display that is the largest one on the market. Lexus plans to have the 2018 LS 500 on sale later this year.
