Which Lexus Model is Right for Your Steeplechase Experience?


The beauty, the grace, the style – the magnificent beasts that race down the track and leap over barriers in the Steeplechase of Charleston represent all that and more. There’s nothing quite like the pageantry of the sport of kings, this year presented at Stono Ferry Racetrack on November 13.

Beauty, grace and style await drivers of Lexus automobiles, the avatar of luxury that offers drivers the opportunity to Experience Amazing. Dependable and elegant as a thoroughbred, a Lexus is as quiet and smooth as a cat, with comfort fit for a king.

So, what model Lexus from Hendrick Lexus Charleston is right for your ride to the steeplechase? That depends upon how you plan to experience it.

  1. General admission – If you’re taking in this unique family-friendly event with the fashionable crowd, you’ll want the best-selling SUV in history, the RX 350. After an afternoon of exhilaration at the racetrack, ride home in the RX, performance-engineered to take exhilaration to even great heights. The RX packs 366 horses under its hood and its advanced suspension and all-wheel drive ability deliver thrills long after the equine rumble has faded. Like mounting a trusty steed, once you drive this vehicle, you will never want to drive another.
  2. Tailgating – For an afternoon of picnicking you want the family-sized SUV, the LX 600. Combining unbelievable durability and luxury, the LX comfortably seats seven people and the power to tow 8,000 pounds. That is plenty for a trailer and five horses, not to mention all the food and paraphernalia you need for a spectacular tailgating experience. Outlets in the back and speakers from the class-leading sound system in the tailgate elevate the proceedings from fun to breathtaking. And that’s even before the 409 horses under hood demonstrate what incomparable on- and off-road performance feels like.
  3. VIP tickets – For the premium tickets it can only be the Lexus LS 500 sedan, the epitome of space-age technology, unmatched performance and nonpareil indulgence. The king of SUVs and the SUV of kings, the LS is only for those who decline anything but the very best. Ensconced in heated seats and leather trim, and powered by a twin-turbocharged 10-speed variable engine and blind spot monitoring, you’ll regret bringing your vehicle to a stop – until the steeplechase begins. When the last horse has crossed the finish line, you’ll return to the sporty styling of dark vapor chrome and unrivaled craftsmanship for the glide home.
