Some fashion-forward individual in Russia has given their Lexus LX 470 the ultimate winter accessory.

Somehow, Mondays and depressing Lexus videos seem to go hand & hand — last week, it was watching an IS F being crushed, and this week it’s an unfortunate parking job that results in an ES 300 taking a river bath.

This video of a matte black Lexus IS-F from Russia is a must-watch, if only for the video quality (though I do recommend turning the sound off if you’re watching at work or easily offended): Although I’ve never been a huge fan of the Wald Black Bison kit, the look is toned down considerably by …

When it comes to the release of the Lexus LS 460 AWD version, this picture says it all: As expected, the LS 460 AWD was introduced at the Moscow International Auto Show today, and the folks at Autoblog have a full photo gallery of the model. The only thing? That AWD badge in the photo …

It was only last week that we heard of Lexus’ plans to release an All-Wheel Drive version of the LS 460/L, and now it’s been confirmed for introduction at the Moscow International Motor Show: The new model, to be sold along side the existing LS 460 and LS 460 L, features permanent all wheel drive …

Three stories out today about Lexus sales, and rather than post them all separately, I thought to just combine them. First up, Toyota president Katsuaki Watanabe still expects to see a slight increase in 2008 sales over 2007, despite the recent downturn in sales. This makes for a large uphill battle, though, as Lexus sales …

Brandstudio, a Russian design firm, has been creating some wonderful websites for Lexus Russia, where each model has a separate Internet presence.

Two GS Donut videos in one day? Seriously? This second video continues on the grand tradition of Russian Lexus Destruction, only this time there’s blood and exploding rubber: For the life of me, I don’t understand why the cameraman inside the car didn’t pull back when he started seeing sparks. Crazy Russians!

If you’re adverse to automotive violence, best avert your eyes, as this guy has some serious pedestrian rage: As is the nature of this type of video, I’m left with more questions than answers: What was that all about? Where did he get the steel pipe? What is it with Russia and destroying Lexus’?

The transport of vehicles worldwide is not without its casualties, as this RX had to learn the hard way: You can see more photos of the destruction over at English Russia, if you’re feeling particularly sadistic. Update: The full story has appeared in English Russia’s comments section: Ten new Toyota vehicles with a value of …
