Sneak Peek: 2013 Lexus GS 450h



Following the unveiling of its all-new Lexus GS at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California, the firm has released teaser images of the 2012 GS F Sport and 450h.

Debuting at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the 450h will be mostly unchanged from the current model, meaning around 300bhp from a combination of a 3.5-litre V6 engine and electric motor. There doesn't appear to be any major styling changes from the standard car that appeared at Pebble Beach, but the model will be distinguished by revised logos with blue accents, detailed in the grille badge.

Aiming for a sportier stance, the F Sport has a new front fascia, which is clearly visible in the teaser. It’s likely that 19-inch alloys will feature alongside a honeycomb grille in an attempt to rival sporty trim levels from its rivals – such as M Sport from BMW and S line from Audi.

On the inside, both cars will use the 12.3-inch split-screen monitor that controls all the car's functions, with a mouse-like joystick navigating the menus. No pricing details have been released, but expect a small premium over the current model, which starts at £45,000. For more details click here.
