Lexus launches limited-edition GS300
18 July 2006

Lexus has revealed a limited-edition version of the GS300 at the British motor show.

The GS300 LE is based on the current SE model but includes 18in five-spoke alloy wheels, a boot lip spoiler, extended side skirts and a front spoiler.

Inside the LE features grey leather seats, dark wood inserts in the doors and centre console, and custom-designed floor mats. The kit list includes DVD satellite navigation, smart entry and start, Bluetooth, electric front seats with memory, climate control, high-intensity discharge headlights, a 10-speaker sound system, park assist monitor and rear parking sensors and automatic windscreen wipers.

Under the bonnet the LE is a regular GS300 - that means a 245bhp 3.0-litre V6 engine, 0-60mph in 7.2 seconds and a top speed of 148mph.

Lexus will only make 250 GS300 LEs, available only in 'Aleutian Grey' metallic paint. The model goes on sale today (July 18), priced at £37,350.
