I have had a few run ins with supped up Mustangs, Camaro SS, and Vette's....all late models, even a pair of Ferrari Modenas racing on the tollway....This car has held them all at bay and even walked away from a few.....I dont race around alot, but living in Dallas TX as I do, drivers do all sorts of hateful things to you on the road. Every car I have is capable and can get away from many, but so far this thing has not been caught or passed......I LOVE IT!!!!

Matador Red replaced Noble Spinel Mica when the LS was refreshed for 2010. The Noble Spinel Mica is darker, more burgundy,

As an old time hot rod street car guy our 08 ls460 has almost enough motor. Which is a compliment from me. Fun to have a motor

380hp and 8 speed automatic can beat most things on the road. Pulls hard on the highway. Just don't try with anything with AMG, S, SRT, M, V. on it .

I honestly did keep up with a pesky motorcyclist who wanted me to move over on a 3 lane highway with barely anyone on the road! I moved over from to the center lane and when he went by, I punched it and was on his tail up to 130 for 2 miles. When we ran into alittle traffic he started weaving thru traffic to get away. For his safety I backed down. The top end is great!

I'm sorry, but a 101-102 mph-trapping LS460 is not going to walk away from anything other than an older 2V Mustang or a C3 Corvette. And certainly not a Modena, which is a 112-115 mph car. The only way that's happening is if you're racing people that aren't racing you. You'd probably be close with a C5 Corvette that's bone stock, as well as a 3V, but both are faster.
As much as I love surprising cars, I am perfectly aware of what cars are faster, and the newer Camaros, Mustangs, etc will gap the daylights out of you if they're actually racing you.

Also, your wheels are on backwards. The longer edge of the blade is supposed to be facing toward the front of the car.
