2018 Lexus LS Gets Attitude Adjustment By Wald International

Wald International’s proposal for the new generation Lexus LS includes two distinct tuning programs.

The first one is simply called ‘Standard’ and, surprisingly, moves away from the Japanese tuner’s usual projects.

However, that doesn’t mean that it’s discreet. Not by far, because it gets a front apron with integrated LED DRLs, widened front fenders, new side skirt set, trunk lid spoiler and rear diffuser with LED brake lamp.

The second is based on the F Sport trim level and comes with pretty much the same updates as the aforementioned bundle of upgrades, only more aggressively executed.

Wald says the exterior parts are made of ABS plastic, suit both the LS 500 and LS 500h, and can be easily installed using the existing factory mounting points.

For an extra buck, the tuner can add an exhaust system with quad tailpipes for the LS 500, which is said to provide the car with a more aggressive sound and improved throttle response during acceleration.

The final upgrade comes in the form of two wheel pattern choices, called I12-C and T22-C, from 20- to 22-inch in size. Wald International recommends the 9.5×22-inch front and 11.5×22-inch rear rims, shod in wide tires, for the ultimate visual effect.

Lexus’ flagship doesn’t get any performance modifications, so the LS 500 is still good for 415 horsepower, whereas the LS 500h hybrid has to make do with 354 hp.

    I just can’t love this thing. [The LS I mean] I wonder… is it selling well?

    • PK

      it’s not going to beat the germans counterpart in sales that’s for sure.

      ive seen several on the roads. they look really good. i actually respect lexus for taking a risk with its design, but people dont want to see that.

      • Craig

        I appreciate that risk-taking as well. But as someone who owned an original LS this new one just isn’t an LS. [As I see it]

    Too low. Unusable as luxury car goes. This one won’t be tackling any tracks but instead bumpy pothole ridden roads.

    • annon

      never too low in Japan 🙂

  • An Existing Person

    I love it. It’s not too over the top like many other Wald kits, but I could do without the light strip on the rear diffuser.

    They took a terrible looking car and made it worse.

    It’s amazing, I like it

  • I’d buy it, but then again it’s an LS
