Lexus revealed the new LS460 AWD at the 2008 Moscow Motor Show and we are more quite impressed with what we see. It is unusual for Lexus to be displaying the new sedan in Moscow due to the fact that they are not fond of the larger vehicles.
However, Lexus is hoping to change their minds and welcome it with open arms. Lexus have used the same four-wheel-drive system that they use in their LS600h, along with the eight-speed automatic transmission as well. The engine used will be the 4.6-liter V8, which is used in the standard model. This will produce 381 hp.
The LS460 AWD is fitted with a Torsen rear LSD. The torque is split 40/60 for normal driving conditions, but if you wish to drive the car harder then 70 percent of the power will go to the rear wheels. This allows for more speed and greater handling.
