Report: TRD releases more aggressive body kit for 2013 Lexus LS460 F Sport in JDM

Upping the ante for Lexus’s 2013 LS 460 is Toyota Racing Development, which has just unveiled a new, more aggressive body kit for the LS 460 F Sport. TRD unveiled the kit on their homepage, which is meant only for the Japanese Domestic Market.

However, there haven’t been any official releases from Lexus or Toyota and it’s currently unknown as to whether or not Toyota USA will bring it here. But should anyone be able to afford a 2013 LS 460 F Sport, importing these parts from Japan might not exactly be too difficult.

Refresher: The 2013 Lexus LS lineup includes the LS 460, LS 460L, LS 600hL hybrid, and the first-ever LS 460 F SPORT. All 2013 Lexus LS 460 models are powered by a 4.6 liter V8 making 386-hp at 6,400 rpm with a maximum torque of 367 lb-ft at 4,100 rpm. Mated to a 8-speed sequential shift automatic transmission, 0 to 60 mph comes in 5.4 seconds (5.9 for AWD) with a top speed of 130 mph. The 2013 Lexus LS 600h L Hybrid is powered by 5.0 liter V8 making 389-hp and 385 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a hybrid system with two electric-motors allowing for a total system output of 438-hp. Mated to CVT and AWD system, the LS 600h L goes from 0 to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds with a top speed of 130 mph. Estimated fuel-economy figures come in at 19/23 mpg or 20 mpg combined.
