"the only major thing that Lexus has invented is the LS that virtually parks itself. Big deal. the S-class virtually drives itself. it will accelerate and come to a complete stop by itself. imagine driving in traffic and all you have to do is steer. beat that. Why does no one know about this, because Mercedes doesnt have to make cheesy commercials to show off their technology.'
You are misinformed. The LS ALSO virtually drives itself, using Dynamic Radar Cruise...it will acclerate and stop all by itself. And it has INNOVATIONS which the Germans can only dream of--it reads the lines on the road, and has pedestrian and object detection capabilities for front and rear, plus night vision. The Benz has night vision, but none of the other features!
Before you go off on your so-called enthusiast snobbery take a look at the growing numbers of politicians, CEOS, athletes, celebs, and yes even heads of state that are driving Lexus cars. Sure Mercedes is a lot older and more geriatric, but history will only take you so far. There's room for others.
"i'd like to see them sell a $190k SL65 wannable. no one would buy it. why? who the hell is gonna spend that much money on a japanese car that has no history, no prestige."
Hah, nice try. There are already 1,850 preorders for the $120K LS 600h L, and the $150,000-ish LF-A is coming out next year. It also has a waiting list.
Deny all you want, till the facts hit you in the face.
Nice try sticking to your old ideas about cars. But if Urban Dictionary wants to accept an uninformed attack rant against one car brand, they should also accept a rebuttal to those arguments. The facts as I've stated in my definition are quite clear--just google them and you'll find reputable sources to back them up. Lexus is certainly not the supreme luxury make in the world, but they can't be dismissed as outright marketing only either. They are an up-and-coming marque, ignore them at your peril.
