They call it the LX.

It’s a travesty we don’t get that here. The Americans get much better Lexus than we get.

Do you not need to be married to a Getty to be able to run such large beasts.

By the way did anyone watch Trust on the BBC last year, how tight was the Original JP Getty!

The yanks get lots of engine options we don't. I really wanted a IS350 after having the 250 but they never did it in the UK. Think they've got a V6 in the new ES too.

The yanks have had the advantage of cheap fuel over the years as do The Gulf States, so big market for gaz guzzlers, but sadly not here. All these large engines will ultimately become a thing of the past.

Three cylinder petrol turbos in everything. But at least they're petrol and not the other stuff.

Yep. I wanted a Gs350 but have the 250. I’m gutted we won’t get the ES350 - just the hybrid.

They do but it’s not so crushingly expensive here to make a 5.7 GX an impossibility. Agree they wouldn’t sell many but a few would take one.

My mate worked out there. They properly drive off road in the Dunes. They’ll be mega fun for that.
