Last week, we posted a teaser shot of the upcoming Lexus LF-Gh Concept car which is currently scheduled to debut at the New York Auto Show later this month. Many pundits are forecasting the concept will be the basis of the next-gen Lexus GS sedan.
Toyota has now followed up with more images and details of the LF-Gh Concept. The car previews the next generation Lexus GS sedan (expected to launch in time for the 2013 model year) and showcases a number of new design elements that will proliferate across the Lexus lineup in the coming years. Most notable is the spindle-shaped grille that dominates the front fascia, which is flanked by full LED headlights with L-shaped LED running lights. The rest of the design — particularly its character lines, roofline, and proportions — borrows heavily from Lexus’ flagship LS range.
Lexus says 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.” We’ll have to take their word for it, for the automaker has refrained from releasing any images of the concept car’s interior.
While we don’t know much more about the LF-Gh Concept yet, we do know that it will be powered by some version of Toyota/Lexus’ hybrid drive system, sending its power to the rear wheels. Expect further details on the LF-Gh Concept to emerge closer to its official debut at the 2011 New York auto show next week. Lexus has also released a video of the LF-Gh, which is available below:
