Diecast car company AutoART has released a 1:18 scale model of the 2014 Lexus LS 600hL:
The detail is astounding, here’s a photo of the interior:
The model is available in Obsidian, Sonic Silver, and Starfire Pearl, and retails for $235 USD.

Beside the fact that I’ll get one for sure I wonder why they did the LS wich is a refresh and not the GS and the IS, I wouldn’t mind to buy them, I’d like to get the refreshed GX in 1:18 scale too cause it may be a monumental model (just like the LS is), the LS remain a must have cause is the only, for now, 1:18 Lexus that feature the Spindle Grille.
The white pearl will be available at the end of the month.
It makes sense for me to buy the model, I can’t afford the actual car. Stunning by the way, thought it was real.
I bought the LFA in 2011 when the regular version was available and after gone sold out in few weeks now it has highest prices on ebay (if you can find one on sale): among 500 and 900$. The only version easy to find is the Nurburgring wich unlike the real car is much more common cause it is still in available on the AA website.
No F-Sport trim? Such a shame
I have the exact same thought and reaction!
I have several AutoArt models and the detail is astounding. They tend to be one of the few models that tend to go up in value, also. Great find.
mybe you should give us enthusiast some little in depth to the LFA. how really fast is the Nurburgring edition LFA compared to the nomal LFA. NE was never tested by major magazines
I wonder if they’re actually going to make the NX in 1/18 scale as a promotional model for dealership in conjunction with the arrive on the market of the real one.
If it were up to me, I would have made the 2013 L10 GS or the 2014 XE30 IS for the simply reason that they are two fresh and, from the point of view of styling innovation,more interesting models while the LS is just a restyling of an 8 yrs old car and not even one of their best restyling (even adding the spindle grille,well integrated btw, I would have kept the shape of the previously headlights and tailights wich were much more luxurios and perfectly integrated in the beautiful LS design) so if I have to be honest this restyling has been pejorative but it doesn’t matter for the actual car cause it still sell enough for an 8 yrs old flagship sedan and is gonna be replaced in little more than a year, no, the bad thing is for the collector wich can’t buy a decent1/18 scale model of the GS and IS simply because they don’t exist. I’m just hoping that AUTOart will made the RC F, possibly in solar flare orange with carbon fiber roof.
