6 Timeless Lexus Designs For the Ages
Daily Slideshow: Since the brand's inception, Lexus has created some of the most memorable automotive designs in history. The ones on this list will certainly stand the test of time.
6. Second Generation Lexus ES
The second iteration of the Lexus ES had to follow in the big footsteps of the previous model's trail-blazing design. And Lexus designers delivered big with a look that was certainly ahead of its time. The Lexus aesthetic of this era is instantly recognizable, and will always be considered classic.
5. Second Generation Lexus IS
The first generation Lexus IS was another underdog that succeeded against all odds. It pioneered in ways that left its BMW and Mercedes-Benz competitors playing catch-up. But the second gen has far exceeded the standards set by its predecessor. In fact, by the mid-2000s, Lexus styling had adopted a strong identity, and the pure forms and design features of the Lexus IS are a direct reflection of that.
4. Lexus LC
The jury may still be out on how the LC's styling will fair against father time. But as controversial as it might sound, I believe this design is one that will be remembered as a legendary benchmark for Lexus in the future.
3. Second Generation Lexus LS
Undoubtedly one of the most iconic Lexus designs of all time, the second-gen LS was a great success. The pre-facelift version pictured above is an evolution of the legendary first-gen LS style. Lexus designers managed to perfect every aspect of the old car and turn it into a bonafide classic piece of automotive styling.
2. First Generation Lexus SC
Hands down, one of the most classically beautiful Lexus designs yet, the first-gen SC is another timeless gem. Modern automotive design progresses faster and faster each year, but seeing a nicely preserved, or tastefully modified, Lexus SC on the road is still a breath of fresh air to this day.
1. First Generation Lexus LS
Of course, no list of legendary Lexus cars is complete without a mention of the one that started it all. The very first Lexus LS set an unprecedented benchmark for luxury automobiles for years to come. And with its pure, straight to the point style, the first LS will always have a special place in Lexus history.
