First Lexus LF-Gh teaser images

Lexus has released the first teaser images of the LF-Gh hybrid concept (earlier post), which will be presented on April 19th. The LF-Gh (Lexus Future Grand Touring hybrid) concept is Lexus’s redefinition of the luxury “grand tourer”.

Another impression of 2013 Lexus LS

Lexus is working on the GS and LS successors and the later one is expected to hit the markets in 2013. This will enable Lexus to compete with Mercedes' all-new S-Class, which is also expected around that time.

Although this rendering doesn't look as impressive as the previous one, I reckon that it's still early to have a good indication of how the new model will look like. This time, BC has published some speculations regarding the LS 460, which should be powered by the 1UR-FSE 4.6L engine delivering 385 ps @ 6400 rpm. The max torque claimed is 51.0 kgm and the estimated fuel efficiency is 11.8 km/L. Prices in Japan should start from around ¥ 9,500,000.
