Hers was gray inside.
Funny thing was her brother got one, too. Now that was just strange.
And he liked the body kits because he traded up and got a 2rd one, a GTZ IIRC? He'd scrape the lip on the driveway every time.

I think I see more of its sibling Corsica and even similar era GPs than Berettas.

Somebody posted this photo on their fb feed. It's amazing that both are full size sedans but they seem "off scale" when parked side by side next to each other. The LS400 looks tiny, the LS460 looks gigantic.

Wow, much higher hip point.
Either that or the suspension is sagging on the old one.

Almost makes me wonder if there's some Photoshopping going on. Here's how they compare, new, old:
Curb Weight - (lb.) 4233, 3859
Wheelbase (in.) 116.90, 110.80
Length (in.) 200.00, 196.70
Width (in.) 73.80, 72.00
Height (in.) 58.10, 55.70

The new one looks a lot more than 2" taller, more like half a foot.
Maybe the new one has an air suspension raised all the way up?

Could be the angle of the shot too, where the hood and belt line look much higher than on the old LS making the new one seem bigger than it really is.

I could see air suspension behind it - look at the wheel gap in the new one, whoa.

My Miata used to be like that. Bigger tires means the gap is smaller now.

The original LS had 15" wheels, the new one has 19" wheels. That's got to make a bit of a difference in height too.
