Is the from the LS460 or some other boat.

The S65 is derived from the S85 V10 but a completely new casting / engine.

Still the S65 is derived from a good true M motor in the V10. The IS-F engine is derived from a luxo-barge.

If Lexus didn't bother developing a sporty motor, what other compromises did they make?
