Lexus directly copied the Mercedes 86-91 126 with their piece of shit LS400. If you can't come up with something original, copy the best.

Ohh fuck, whatever. So what do you tossers with your heads stuck up your arses make of the latest S Class having design cues from the Mazda RX8 and BMW 7 Series? Copying the best?
I do know that if I had a choice of owning an early LS400 or W140, thinking with my head, it wouldn't be the Benz. Yes, that 'piece of shit Lexus' did have some teething problems, not nearly as bad as the 140 though. Ohh, and I don't find homos thinking they're pimp driving around in a Lexus, another reason to take it over the Benz. These days, when buying a 3 pointed star, thats the bullshit image that we are associated with, unfortunate for those who buy them for the love of the car not image (me)

Interesting that the LS400 was copied off the W126. I can see some common design features, but always thought the LS evolved from the Toyota Cressida.

RE: Do youall like the Mark VIII?


I owned a 91 Mark VII way back that had problems with the air suspension.Every time I fixed it,it would shortly fail again.Other than that,it was alright for a 90's American luxury car and had a good amount of stab to it.

Still if I had to own an American car,it would be another 77-84 Cadillac coupe deville
