If you're going to put an F Sport badge on your redesigned flagship, it has to be the real deal.
This is doubly true on a thinking man's luxury sedan like the Lexus LS, which doesn't tend to attract buyers who get caught up in their emotions. If it's good and priced appropriately, they'll pay for it; otherwise, forget it.
As we point a 2013 Lexus LS 460 F Sport down twisty La Honda Road, the back way to work for Silicon Valley executives commuting from Los Gatos, it feels as if Lexus is about to turn a corner with this crowd.
F Sport: Say It With Feeling
Like the 2013 Lexus GS 350, the LS 460 F Sport model is more than a collection of go-faster/look-faster accessories. It's an enhancement on the Sport package offered on last year's LS 460, which already provided a Brembo brake kit, paddle shifters and a sportier suspension calibration. Now, though, the upgrades are applied to a sedan that's fit for cornering in the first place.
