Edmunds Track-Test: Lexus LS 460 Sport vs. BMW 750i Sport

Lexus LS 460 Sport vs. BMW 750i Sport

Edmund’s Inside Line has pitted the new Lexus LS Sport package against the BMW 750i Sport in a performance track test, and in the process, somehow managed to add a full second to the LS 460’s official 0-60 time.

According to the Edmunds numbers, the LS 460 Sport hits 0-60 mph in 6.4 seconds compared to the 750i Sport time of 5.2 seconds. This flies in the face of the official numbers for the non-sport LS 460, which Lexus is claiming can hit 0-60 in 5.4 seconds.

Hard to believe the LS Sport package would come with a performance disadvantage—surely something must be amiss with the testing.
