The qualities of supreme engineering, power and interior space and comfort which distinguish the Lexus GS430 have earned the model a new role as the latest addition to Wiltshire Constabulary's vehicle fleet.
The new Lexus GS430 joins an upgraded GS300 to offer what is truly a driver's car of the highest dimension. Both combine distinctive style with outstanding performance and the refinement and luxury for which the Lexus brand is renowned, and share some of the most sophisticated automotive technology currently available.
Since its launch in spring 2005, the all-new third-generation GS has been a successful standard bearer for Lexus’s advances in individual style, refined performance, innovative safety and advanced technology.
Lexus has unveiled two significant new models at the North American International Auto Show. Taking centre stage at Detroit are the all-new GS sports saloon and the production version of the hybrid power RX400h prestige SUV.
Lexus has introduced a series of styling, technical and equipment revisions that further strengthen the full hybrid GS 450h’s appeal in the premium saloon market. It has rationalised the model line-up into two equipment grades – SE and SE-L – and introduced new exterior colour choices, alloy wheel designs and interior trims.
Lexus’s full hybrid GS 450h luxury sports saloon is being freshened up for the 2010 model year with styling changes, new colours, revisions to the Pre-Crash Safety system and more sophisticated navigation and audio packages.
Following on from the successful trial of the Lexus RX 400h by Hampshire Police in August last year, Wiltshire Constabulary will be the first police force in the country to incorporate the recently launched high performance Lexus GS 450h to their fleet.
World famous for their refinement and comfort, Lexus cars are also proving to be great racing cars. The SC 430 has succeeded the iconic Supra in the Super GT series and the GS 450h petrol-electric hybrid tackled a Le Mans-style 24 hour race.
