The available Adaptive Variable Air Suspension offered on the LS replaces conventional coil springs with electronically controlled air springs and adaptive shock absorbers, for unparalleled ride comfort and control. The system automatically adjusts for road conditions and driving style, and also tailors its response based on the driver-selectable Comfort, Normal, Sport and Sport S/S+ drive modes. The system in the LS F SPORT goes a step further, with a lowered stance and track tuning by the same engineers who developed the suspension found in the LFA supercar.
This system automatically adjusts the steering angles and response of the front wheels. At low speeds, VGRS reduces the number of turns, lock to lock, for easier maneuvering. At high speeds, the steering-gear ratio is optimized for increased high-speed responsiveness and control. When combined with the Dynamic Rear Steering system, it improves response, rear grip and overall agility when cornering.

The all-wheel drive LS models provide greater command and control during acceleration and cornering in all kinds of weather.
On rear-wheel drive models, the limited-slip rear differential automatically and instantly distributes power to the right and left rear wheels to help improve traction and stability during cornering, without interrupting power output.
In Manual mode, the quick-shifting, eight-speed transmission can be controlled with paddle shifters, putting the exhilaration of the 386-horsepower* LS at your fingertips. By automatically increasing the engine speed during downshifts, the throttle-blipping function delivers faster and smoother gear changes for greater acceleration and response coming out of corners (RWD only).
The 19-inch forged alloy wheels* are paired with high-performance Brembo front brakes,* featuring massive six-piston aluminum calipers with 14.8-inch ventilated rotors with spiral internal fins for enhanced cooling.
Exhilaration isn't solely delivered by what's under the hood. And on the LS F SPORT, every detail contributes.Learn More

Its designations as the world’s first premium prestige luxury and full V8 hybrid are just two of the ways the LS 600h L has set itself apart from the competition. With an engine that’s remarkably powerful and efficient, and an interior equipped with our finest amenities, you’ll realize we didn’t just set out to create the finest hybrid vehicle. We set out to create the finest vehicle, period.
By pairing a 5.0-liter V8 gasoline engine with advanced hybrid technology, the LS 600h L hybrid is remarkably efficient while delivering 438 total system horsepower.* About what you'd get from a far less considerate 6.0-liter V12. At the same time, its acceleration is exceptionally smooth, quiet and, with a 0-to-60 time of 5.5 seconds,* exhilarating.
