Park Place Lexus Plano partnered with Legacy West to host an evening of luxury to launch the new flagship 2018 Lexus LS 500 sedan. 

“We’re always striving to provide the greatest experience for our clients,” said Jordan Case, president of Park Place Lexus. “Partnering with Legacy West, North Texas’ definitive new dining and retail destination, this event offered the perfect blend of luxury and excitement to launch Lexus’ new luxury sedan. We were just as excited about hosting the executives from our charitable partner, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children’s North Campus, which promises the best in care for Collin County families when it opens later this year.”

Guests floated between three in-dealership destinations to sample delicious plates from Taverna, Toulouse and KAI by Lombardi Family Concepts, as well as Earls Kitchen+Bar, Fogo de Chão and prime BBQ from Carlton Provisions.  Crafted Cocktails like Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur and Hendrick’s Gin Fizz’s, Reyka Cosmopolitan Martinis and Monkey Shoulder whisky smashes wetted whistles, along with wines and beers from Detour and Unlawful Assembly from Legacy Hall. Guests where offered hand-rolled cigars from Cigar Art.

Curated fashions were featured by Johnny Was, Coach, Pockets Menswear, and Filson.  The Renaissance Dallas at Plano Legacy West Hotel kept it all up-tempo with ‘business unusual’ entertainment.  

Lexus built its reputation with the launch of the LS (Luxury Sedan) nearly 30 years ago, solidifying its position as the ultimate flagship Sedan. And this new fifth-generation model lives up to its acclaim, combining a luxurious interior with the latest in technology and a fresh design. While the new sedan sits lower to the ground, Lexus offers an air suspension system with an “access function” that can raise the vehicle for even easier access.

Inspired by Japanese lanterns, the ambient interior lighting sets the mood for a luxurious ride. Sweeping lines curve and spread along the contours of the dash, then flow back along the door panels, creating an expansive environment.Anchoring the intuitive infotainment system is a bright 12-inch display, with an optional 24-inch screen, the largest color heads-up display of any production car in the world. 

Powered by an all-new twin-turbocharged 3.4-liter V-6, and matched with a new Aisin 10-speed automatic, this luxurious beast churns out 416 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque to smoothly propel you from 0-to-60 mph in just over five seconds.

Starting at $75,000 MSRP, the LS 500 sets a new standard for agility, style, and comfort.

Park Place Lexus Plano is located at 6785 Dallas Parkway, on the southwest corner of Spring Creek Parkway and North Dallas Tollway.
