1998 Lexus LS400 MKIV - 78,232 miles - 17 Lexus Stamps For Sale
Hello and welcome to my listing for this 1998 Lexus LS400. For those who aren’t familiar with the model, this is the later face-lift (MK4) version of the LS400. This 4.0 V8 280bhp model was introduced in late 1997 for the 1998 model year and ceased production in 2000. The MK4 came with some significant improvements over its predecessor such as 5 speed automatic transmission. It was the first version of the LS400 to feature Variable Valve Timing (VVT-i). Cosmetic differences included a new front fascia, different side mirrors and a new wheel design. This example has the right colour combination for a 1990s flagship! The official colour name is Cashmere Beige, complimented by Suffolk (cream/beige) leather interior. The specification of this LS400 is as you would expect for a £50,000 vehicle in 1998, with electrically operated front seats including lumbar support, electric steering column adjustment, 6-disc CD changer, electric glass sunroof, digital sound processing and not forgetting the full colour touch screen satellite navigation system, well ahead of its time. Having covered just 78,232 miles from new, this example is barely run in! I’ve run these cars with 250,000 miles+ and they’re good for much more with proper servicing and maintenance like this one has had over the years. I’ve recently taken the car to the Lexus Main Dealer in Lincoln for an oil change and M.O.T. It has the following service stamps in the book, 16 of which are from the supplying dealer (Toyota/Lexus Newcastle): · 4 miles (pre-delivery inspection), Lexus Newcastle, 30/03/98 · 12,045 miles, Lexus Newcastle, 02/01/99 · 17,648 miles, Lexus Newcastle, 19/07/99 · 29,730 miles, Lexus Newcastle, 14/08/00 · 38,254 miles, Lexus Newcastle, 20/06/01 · 45,215 miles, Lexus Newcastle, 29/05/03 · 47,012 miles, Lexus Newcastle, 13/07/04 · 49,014 miles, Lexus Newcastle, 24/11/05 · 51,615 miles, Lexus Newcastle, 23/11/06 · 54,926 miles, Lexus Newcastle, 03/12/07 · 59,863 miles, Lexus Newcastle, 31/03/09 · 64,084 miles, Lexus Newcastle, 28/05/10 · 67,425 miles, Lexus Newcastle, 20/04/12 · 69,342 miles, Lexus Newcastle, 24/04/13 · 71,551 miles, Lexus Newcastle, 09/05/14 · 73,596 miles, Lexus Newcastle, 07/05/15 · 78,231 miles, Lexus Lincoln, 23/06/20 The recent M.O.T. was done by Lexus Lincoln (expires 21st June 2021). The car is registered in my name, although it is a vehicle I’ve acquired to sell on. It has had 4 previous owners, the last one had owned it for 19 years. All original handbooks are present and there's two keys. One key has been repaired with tape, so could do with a new plastic housing. Recent replacement parts include two new bonnet struts and a brand new Bosch battery. Cosmetically, the car requires attention, it has had some battle scars during its 22 years. The back bumper has scuffs along the very bottom. There’s also some other scuffs on the bumpers. To bring it back up to standard it would benefit from having the paintwork seen to in various areas. The wheels aren’t as bad as some I’ve seen, but ideally need refurbishing due to flaking. This LS400 drives beautifully, with smooth gear changes and the most comfortable ride. The build quality and interior finish of the LS400 compared to it's other 1990s rivals is far superior in my opinion! Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to arrange a viewing (Wragby, Lincolnshire, LN8 area). Many thanks for looking.
