German tuners Lorinser, mainly known for their work on the Mercedes-Benz lineup, have targeted their first-ever Asian car modification. Introducing the Lorinser Lexus LS 460.

Tuners at the German firm Lorinser are best known for their work on the Mercedes-Benz lineup.  The company has pretty much hit every modern Mercedes, from A to SLK, including the Viano.  Two years ago, they ventured a little further out, giving a nice bit of work to the Smart Cars.

Now the company has set their sites on their first ever Asian adaptation.  Meet the Lorinser Lexus LS 460, with a new aerokit meant to give the big, five-meter long car "elegant bodywark that exudes confidence."

Engineers first subtly attacked the front fascia with a new spoiler that incorporates new, round foglights.  The front bumper also appears to be a bit more squared off, giving the car a more stately appearance.  Side sill changes are substantial, but not aggressive, and warn onlookers that the car has some power under its hood.

Modifications at the back are a bit more noticeable, although Lorinser kept the 460's rear light cluster intact.  A rear wing has been added on to the boot, and a new apron has been installed.  These show more sporty characteristics, as the apron incorporates an air inlet, race-inspired grill, and quad-tipped dual exhaust.  The package is rounded off with custom made light-alloys.

Despite making all of these changes, the Lorinser Lexus LS 460 has a relatively unchanged 0-100 km/h time of 5.7 seconds.  Power comes from a 4.6-liter V8 engine that produces 381 horsepower.  Although not yet on their website, the Lorinser LS 460 should be available from the company in no time.
