Next-gen Lexus LS teased in official video?Enlarge Photo
Lexus has been quietly working on a redesigned version of its LS flagship sedan, which according to our info is on track for a sales debut before the year is out.
Before then, however, Lexus will reveal the new LS at a special event in San Francisco, California.
Ahead of the event, which is scheduled for July 30, Lexus has confirmed that the 2013 LS will be available as the LS 460, LS 460 L long-wheelbase model, LS 600h L long-wheelbase hybrid sedan and the all-new LS 460 F Sport performance model.
Not much else is known about the 2013 Lexus LS, although we have some idea as to what its front-end styling will look like thanks to the teaser image above, which first appeared in an official video released in March.
Toyota’s motorsports partner, Toyota Motorsports GmbH, has also been testing a high-performance LS prototype at its headquarters in Cologne, Germany, and at the Nürburgring race track, and it’s possible that some of the items being tested on the prototype could make it onto the new LS F Sport model.
More details will be announced at 8:30 pm EDT on July 30 following the live webcast on the Lexus Facebook fan page.
Stay tuned for an update.
