1990 Lexus LS400

The 1990 Lexus LS400 was the debut model for the Lexus brand, which was launched by Toyota as a luxury division to compete with German luxury brands such as Mercedes-Benz and BMW. The LS400 was designed to be a flagship model for the brand, and it was introduced with a number of cutting-edge features not commonly found in vehicles at the time.

Some key features of the 1990 Lexus LS400 include:

  • A 4.0-liter V8 engine that produced 250 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque
  • A four-speed automatic transmission
  • Antilock brakes and traction control as standard features
  • A fully independent suspension system
  • A spacious and well-appointed interior with leather upholstery, a premium sound system, and power-adjustable seats
  • Aerodynamic styling that emphasized smooth lines and a low drag coefficient for improved fuel efficiency

The LS400 was praised by critics and consumers alike for its quiet and smooth ride quality, advanced technology features, and impeccable build quality. It quickly established Lexus as a serious contender in the luxury car market, and helped to cement Toyota’s reputation for reliability and engineering excellence. Despite being nearly 30 years old, the LS400 remains a highly sought-after classic car for those who value luxury, comfort, and performance.
