Lexus prides itself on the reliability of its cars and nowhere has this dependability been more evident than with a 1996 Lexus LS400 in Tampa, Florida that has covered an incredible 897,000 miles.
This classic motor was recently purchased by Lexus enthusiast Matt Farah who had the idea to take it to the magic million miles with a drive from Tampa to Los Angeles.
Matt Farah explained his love for the Japanese luxury saloon, “Those who know me, or at least know my taste in cars, would agree: I had to have the car. You see, I don’t crave a Ferrari, or really any of your traditional choices in cars, because I’ve seen them all a million times before. I crave the obscure; the interesting; the weird; the story.”
Incredibly, for a car that is over 20 years old, every single accessory and piece of equipment is in perfect working order including the air conditioning system and TV screen in each headrest.
If you fancy a Lexus with less miles on the clock then you should take a look at the latest LS 600h L Saloon.
The LS 600h L offers superior luxury with a range of advanced technology to provide an ‘Omotenashi’ (the Japanese spirit of hospitality) welcome.
When you step towards the car with the electronic smart key, guiding lights on the wing mirrors and the LED clock are activated automatically. Once you are seated, press the start button and you will discover that the LS 600h L delivers breath-taking performance with surprisingly impressive economy figures relative to its size.
Powered by a 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine and an electric motor, the latest Lexus Hybrid Drive delivers 438bhp of refined power using permanent All-Wheel Drive.
