    Lexus GS430 up to 120 mph

    My wife and I were on the highway the other day when a Lexus Gs430 blew by me at like 85 mph. Like a greyhound chasin a rabit I instinctively jumped into the passing lane and wanted to play. He pulled into the right lane and let me get door to door. Then he lurches 1/2 a fender on me so I nailed it and rode 4th to almost 120 mph. The amazing thing is that I barely pulled a car length on him and he was hangin' right with me. I didn't know a Lexus had that kinda balls. When I let off, he slowed down too and I tried to give him the thumbs up for a good race but he wouldn't even acknowledge me. He stayed his 85 mph so I just fell in behind him and let him sweep radar for me. I'd still like to see how one of those would do from a dig.

    Lexus GS430:

    0-60: 5.9 seconds
    Standing Quarter Mile: 14.4 seconds at 99 mph

    1 car length or more from 90 - 120 sounds about right!

    I test drove a 430 the first year they came out and was extremely impressed when I pulled out on the hwy and gunned it. I went from 60-80 in a heartbeat......

    No stick, but I'm almost sure they all have the tiptronic on them.

    they do. They did an episode of "Rides" on one where they put the V8 from the GS430 into an IS300 and it was a fuckin monster!!!
