Nice call Alex, I like it!
Alex Renaud Jul 31, 2012
@ David: It can be found on the inside of the car, or on the outside if you flip it inside-out.
David Justice Jul 31, 2012
Where's the interior?
Petre Draghici Jul 31, 2012
Yes, but that was just a rendering
Jordan Jackson Jul 31, 2012
Didn't they already do an article on this a few days ago?
Jacob Burford Nov 24, 2012
I'm not liking the front end design that Lexus is going for.
Sasha Brescanu Aug 01, 2012
I really like the first gen of the 90's. Those cars had style and there was no problem to tell if that's ls400.
Timothy Hooker Jul 31, 2012
blah this looks boring and bloated.
Yaman Daas Jul 31, 2012
It is very nice from the outside but from inside it is similar to the old on
Cody Fullerton Jul 31, 2012
Not a big fan of this design language but this one might grow on me
Alex Smith Jul 31, 2012
Finally they made Lexus not just look like rebadge Toyotas.
Matt Piccolo Jul 31, 2012
Wow this looks great... Good job Lexus
Keegan Mathur Jul 31, 2012
BMW is best in my opinion but this looks great!
John Serely Jul 31, 2012
I complete agree, shaun
Stephen Reed Warren II Jul 31, 2012
Agree. Even tho ppl sometimes confuse the E with the S (which is ludicrous)
Shaun Conroy Jul 31, 2012
Mercedes does it best. They all share similarities, but you would never mistake one for the other.
John Serely Jul 31, 2012
This does look similar to the other redesigned lexuses, but there is nothing wrong with that, because they are from the same brand. That being said, I would definitely take any of the German/ British flagship sedans over this.
Stephen Reed Warren II Jul 31, 2012
I can look at a Lexus in 1 second and tell which class the car falls in to, e.g. Is, es, gs, Ls. I think Audi's cars are all more similar than Lexus. Same with BMW. At least the 3, 5, and 7. I like all these brands tho.
Corey Mullis Jul 31, 2012
Toyota/Lexus design language is so weird these days
Timathy Dorman Jul 31, 2012
All of the sedans look too much alike in my opinion, the ES, GS, and LS share too many of the same design characteristics... Seems lazy
Tim Preisinger Jul 31, 2012
I think this looks pretty good
Description: Characterized by a more aggressive appearance and a sportier interior, the F Sport model is enhanced by a fresh aero kit, 19-inch alloys, more aggressively bolstered bucket seats, paddle shifters and ...

@aaron alright I know what you mean
Paul Lissona Aug 01, 2012
I'm ok with the power, I'm sure it feels like a lot more hp than it is. And yes my car doesn't have 200 hp even. People are just ridiculous.
Aaron Cartwright Aug 01, 2012
So ya, I get what your saying and agree.
Aaron Cartwright Aug 01, 2012
@john maybe that's why I don't think it needs more power, I just don't think it's deserving of more or necessary for this car to have more, and there is a line where more becomes to much. I've been in some hi hp cars that had to much..
John Serely Jul 31, 2012
For me if I had the choice between the exact same car with less hp, and the one with more hp, I'd go with the more powerful one but obviously you don't want more hp, so it would not matter to you anyways. Also I wouldn't want this car even more power
John Serely Jul 31, 2012
@aaron of course it won't go to the track, no flagship sedan in a comparable trim level to the LS460 would go to the track lol (expect maybe the panamera s). Power is not only important on the track.
Aaron Cartwright Jul 31, 2012
@john no I'm not interested in more power in a soft luxo box that will never make it to the track. Oh and 400hp is a lot of power. I'd rather have a light well balanced low power sports car than a high power boat. Thats just me though..
Brian Ball Jul 31, 2012
comparable power. This reminds me of the Infinity "IPL" line. Stop playing around and put a REAL power plant in there!!
Brian Ball Jul 31, 2012
I completely agree with everyone wanting more power, you can't "sugarcoat" this, if you're going to make a sport designated car , i.e AMG, or M, and it's CLEARLY intended to compete or to try and steal some of the sales, I think it should have
Scott Gracey Jul 31, 2012
I'm just sayin, I want a fast car I'll buy a Porsche or something, I want luxury id get an LS... I get what you're sayin, different priority I suppose lol
Stephen Reed Warren II Jul 31, 2012
Agreed John. BMW even said they went to 445hp because the s class went to 429hp. It's competition. It's what consumers want to know even if it isn't a "racing" car. The LS should have at least gone to 400+ hp
John Serely Jul 31, 2012
@scott/Aaron: Im just saying that if I'm spending 70k+, I want my luxury car to have a lot of power. Of course I wouldn't race it, scott lol, but im not going to ignore power. I would rather have a faster car than a slower car, but obviously you dont
Scott Gracey Jul 31, 2012
Want a faster Lexus buy an isf
Scott Gracey Jul 31, 2012
I don't know about you guys but I wouldn't buy the LS to go racing around it, it's one of the best luxury sedans out there, ya BMW and merc have faster luxury sedans, but again, I wouldn't buy an S class or 7 series to go racing around in either lol
Zaire Wilkins Jul 31, 2012
i know 1 car that isnt as big as this and comes with 420hp the M56
Zaire Wilkins Jul 31, 2012
all those cars listed in other comments are over priced so is this
Aaron Cartwright Jul 31, 2012
Your really going to cry about no power, remember a few years ago we were lucky to see a car crack 200hp let alone 400hp, and with most peoples driving abilities, more isn't better.
John Serely Jul 31, 2012
Hmm, 386 seems a little low. Like Stephen said, it's competitors have a lot more power, even a Jag XJ SC, has 470. I know that the Lexus has a pre advantage, but if your spending that kind of money, you might as well put in a little extra to get more
Stephen Reed Warren II Jul 31, 2012
With the S class going to 429hp and the 750 going to 445hp.....The LS going from 380 to 386 is weak sauce. My dad has a 2011 LS 460 L and it's a great car; i just wish new speed came with the new styling
Description: The LS 600hL, meanwhile, couples a 389hp 5.0-liter V8 to a 221hp electric motor, driving through a continuously-variable transmission to all four wheels. The updated LS was unveiled in concert with th...

Or just a mix between two different things.
Bob Jones Jul 31, 2012
Hybrid just means that it's a mix of two different powertrains, usually a gasoline engine and an electric motor.
Jack Howard Jul 31, 2012
I dont think he knows what "hybrid" means
Bijan Jahanpanah Jul 31, 2012
Why would you say that on a car app?
John Serely Jul 31, 2012
@julian um..........no
Julian Rasolko Jul 31, 2012
I thought hybrids had only 4 cylinders?
Paul Lissona Aug 01, 2012
Jack yah in the coupe models.
Nick Smith Jul 31, 2012
I don't think they want to make it look purely sporty, more or less just add some sporty-styling to it. LS will always be a big luxury sedan
Timothy Hooker Jul 31, 2012
this looks so heavy. don't see anything sporty in this picture.
Jack Howard Jul 31, 2012
The 2001-2003 Civic had Cs in the tail lights
Shaun Conroy Jul 31, 2012
Believe it or not, VW has been doing that on their newest models. Tiguan, Eos, CC. Check it out.
John Serely Jul 31, 2012
@bull why on earth would they want to try that? Of course they would not get away with putting the Lexus "L" on an S class or A8!
Bull Dogone Jul 31, 2012
Really like how they incorporated a swooping "L" into the tail lights. Pure Lexus. Let's see Audi, BMW or Benz get away with that!
Harry Chagger Jul 31, 2012
i can see the lines of a LS-F coming on.....now that will be very intresting
Shaun Conroy Jul 31, 2012
This doesn't look as elegant as the last one. Doesn't look bad at all, just sportier.
Bull Dogone Jul 31, 2012
What's not to like? Old LS was uninspired to look at.
Janak Solanki Aug 01, 2012
James I think u are spot on.
James Xalis Aug 01, 2012
I don't like the front at all. It's supposed to be a luxury car that is supposed to compete with a 7 series and S class. I looks too much like a sports car. It would be great styling on a different model, but not their top of the line luxury.
Zaire Wilkins Jul 31, 2012
6 HID headlights? i thought they would use full LED headlights like the acura RLX or Kia quorris
Bull Dogone Jul 31, 2012
Mmm. F Sport Grill. Mine looks same on my IS F Sport.
Adam Mitchel Aug 02, 2012
Someone copied BMW with their taillights...
Harry Chagger Jul 31, 2012
love this car looks stunning n very sporty
Bull Dogone Jul 31, 2012
Love the clean look of the rear. Chrome exhaust ports inlaid into rear bumper valance look great.
Bull Dogone Jul 31, 2012
Scrub A Dub Dub on these suckers, but anyone who can afford one won't be washing it themselves anyway LOL.
Matt Piccolo Jul 31, 2012
If u go to the bottom of the gallery, te interior looks good
Celeste Leme Jul 31, 2012
Lexus like the ugly style.
