The 2018 Lexus LS is taking aim at the Mercedes-AMG S65 as it is offering up more than 600 horsepower thanks to the V8 twin-turbocharged engine. This is of course the performance version of the vehicle and it should give the S65 a good run for its money.

The Lexus LS is known to be the sensible alternative to the S-Class, however it doesn’t offer up the same character as the S-Class and more so if you choose to go with the AMG trim. On the downside is the fact that it might come in with a price tag that makes people think twice.

Whether the seating is going to be as comfortable as that offered by the S-Class remains to be seen and people are hoping that it also comes with the same infotainment system. People have also compared the infotainment in the Mercedes AMG S65 to the Lexus LS and said that the one on the Mercedes is nicer of the two.

Some have suggested that the 2018 Lexus LS could have a price tag of around the $150,000 mark as the LS460 comes in at about $80k. At the moment this is all speculation of course, but what do you think about the vehicle?
