Lexus will be showing its LF-Gh Concept at the 2011 New York auto show next week, and has released advance images and information on the new grand touring sedan.
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.
