Wald International has just revealed two sets of exterior upgrade kit for the Lexus LS, called the Executive and F Sport respectively. The flagship limousine is already a stunner to begin with (to this writer, at least), but that’s not stopping the Japanese tuning house from spicing things up. After all, it has been offering aftermarket kits for the first-gen LS since 1994!

The Executive package for the LS 500h Hybrid is comprised of an all-round skirting kit with chrome accents, front LED DRLs (optional, sold separately), tailgate spoiler, aluminium fender fins, “sports fender ducts” and LED brake lamps.

Owners of the LS 500 can opt for a more aggressive-looking kit that also includes a full skirting package. However, to fit the rear lip, a small section of the original bumper will have to be cut off. Also, the factory-fitted diffuser and tail finishers will have to be removed.

For those who want a slightly more aggressive look, Wald’s F Sport treatment may tickle your fancy. To start, the front, side and rear skirts come with smoked chrome accents, and the front apron also features the same optional LED bar DRL. There’s also a slim spoiler that’s furnished in either chrome or smoked chrome. A pair of sports fender ducts and aluminium fender fins complete the package for the LS 500h Hybrid.

The F Sport pack for the LS 500 gets a special rear skirt with integrated muffler cutters and smoked chrome highlights. As with the Exclusive pack, the factory bumper will have to be cut for a perfect fit. However, all parts are made of ABS plastic and can be easily installed using the existing factory brackets. A Wald exhaust system can also be specified, which the firm says will provide a more aggressive sound and improved throttle response during acceleration.

Lastly, two wheel options can be had, namely the I12-C and T22-C. Both designs can be had from 20- to 22-inch in size, although Wald recommends the 9.5×22-inch front and 11.5×22-inch rear rims shod with fat, low-profile tyres for the most dramatic visual effect.

Performance-wise, the luxo barge remains untouched. The non-hybrid LS 500 is powered by a 3.5 litre twin-turbo petrol V6, offering 415 hp at 6,000 rpm and 600 Nm of torque from 1,600 to 4,800 rpm. It’s paired with a 10-speed torque converter Direct Shift automatic transmission.

The hybrid also utilises a 3.5 litre V6 petrol mill, but it is normally-aspirated and makes 295 hp at 6,600 rpm and 350 Nm of torque at 5,100 rpm on its own. The engine is assisted by two permanent magnet synchronous electric motors (176 hp, 300 Nm), with a 310 volt lithium-ion battery to provide juice.

The combined system output for the hybrid is 354 hp, and all that power is put to the ground via a Multi Stage Hybrid Transmission, which combines a four-speed automatic with a traditional hybrid continuously variable transmission (CVT) to recreate a 10-speed transmission.
