He is the Japanese figurehead when it comes to luxury vehicles. The Lexus LS 500h which can be ordered at the base price of 93.300 € also in this country. But as much as Lexus also tries, against Mercedes S-Class, BMW 7er or Audi A8 is apparently no match. But unlike the VW Phaeton tried the LS at least continue. After Lexus 2016 only 17 (in words: seventeen) Vehicles sold and also the year 2017 was not really successful one has now in the year 2018 at least planned to be able to sell the LS in the three-digit range. The huge spindle grill, the coupe-like shape and the quite shapely rear with the chic tail lights should optically but actually convince some interested parties.
The whole thing is underpinned by an excellent finish in the interior and nice accessories such as origami-folded fabric panels in the doors, surrounds of the door handles made of special crystal glass, etc. Not to mention all conceivable safety features and electronic refinements. And now comes the Japanese tuner Forest International and gives the LS a subtle body kit that is really impressive. The tuner uses a color combination of chrome and white for the presentation vehicle and is therefore quite convincing. There is a front spoiler for the bumper with chrome inlays and sculpture-like elements that go perfectly with the huge grille.

And the new side skirts are also part of the body kit and these also come with lots of chrome. And this is exactly what continues at the rear because there is a subtle spoiler lip for the tailgate and a sporty approach in diffuser optics for the rear apron. And here, too, the components are equipped with chrome applications. We do not have any further information on this special exhibition vehicle, but we assume that the integrated exhaust covers are only fake because the hybrid model was apparently used as the basis for the tuning. And of course a new wheel set should not be missing and here you do without shiny chrome but instead install a rim in dark gray with polished rim beds.
Thanks to a subtle lowering the 21 inch large wheelset sits perfectly in the wheel arch and the set-up should also provide for a sportier pace of the LS. We like this modified version of the LS really well and we would wish Lexus, that the luxury liner also finds in this country in the road to success. He is definitely a welcome alternative to the German pabulum. Much more is due to the little information available to us currently not to say so that we leave it in the pictures. If we get more details about the changes, there is, of course, an update for this report. It is best to subscribe to our feed and if there is something new you will get in touch immediately.

News from 07.08.2018
The team around the Japanese tuner Forest International has now again equipped a Lexus LS500 with her discreet body kit. In addition, there was also a set of in-house alloy wheels in Gunmetal Gray and a lowering. Of course, we would also like to show you this project, because of the black paint of the LS is much more discreet than the white version of above. The styling package of Executive Line is the elegant Japanese really good and underlines the body in just the right places as we find. Have fun with the new pictures!
