Here you can see the 1st spy photos of the new Lexus GS, taken today by CarPix spy photographers. These pictures surprise the car while it takes some laps around a rainy Nürburgring in Germany.
Even if the car is covered with that dense, black camouflage, we can easily see, that it look alot like the Lexus LF-Gh concept car that was shown earlier this year at the New York Car Show.
The next generation Lexus GS sedan expected to launch in time for the 2013 model year. At NY Car Show, Lexux LF-Gh showcases a number of new design elements that will proliferate across the Lexus lineup in the coming years. Most important is the spindle-shaped grille that dominates the front fascia, which is flanked by full LED headlights with L-shaped LED running lights. Except some changes (particularly its character lines, roofline, and proportions) borrows heavily from Lexus’ flagship LS range.
The brand stated (before the concept has been shown in NY) that the interior will be a meticulously designed and engineered cabin using the highest quality materials. It has “re-examined every detail of the interior, with the aim of making [it] driver-focused.”
Considering that the exterior at least is very similar with LF-Gh concept car presented in New York this year, we can suppose that it will keep the same dimensions and features as the concept. The car presented in NY was 192.5 in. long and 73.6 in. wide, the LF-Gh is roughly 2.5 in. longer and about 2 in. wider than the current 2011 GS 450h hybrid sedan.
For now we do not have the official specifications, but with roughly the same dimensions, we expected this car to use an updated version of the 292-bhp 3.5-liter V-6 engine and CVT automatic transmission found in the GS 450h.
We will keep you in touch with all the information that will appear. Until then you can watch the most recent spy pics with the new Lexus GS in the gallery below.
