The Lexus LS430
Point twenty five Cd with the optional air suspension ( lowers it at speed about an inch )
point twenty six without
Look at the angle of the rear glass, the blunt front end, open wheels and large grille.
This car is as 'sleek' as a Prius, though you would never know it by looking at it.





( I say poo-poo to the automakers claim that they can't make cars more aerodynamic because they will all have to look like a Prius. The LS430 matches the Prius Cd yet looks like a rounded brick. There is a lot of design room left between the shape of the two cars ! )

Thanks for putting up this thread.
I'm loving it !
