Lexus teaser hints at next-gen LS for Tokyo debut
Lexus has released a teaser image for a new concept that will make its formal debut next week in Tokyo.
The darkened shot shows a stylish LED headlight with three thin lenses blended in a straight line. A boomerang element sits below the headlight, potentially serving as an NX-inspired daytime running light or simply a contrasting metallic design element.
The company has not yet officially identified the mystery vehicle, instead vaguely noting that it will capture its “vision of progressive luxury.”
Recent rumors suggest the headlight may belong to a concept previewing the next-generation LS sedan. The company is said to be focused on making a statement with the next LS, celebrating 25 years since Toyota entered the luxury market via the original Lexus LS400.
Details remain scarce, though the redesigned LS could take advantage of a hybrid powertrain or Toyota’s fuel-cell technology. The V8-powered range topper is expected to receive under-the-hood upgrades, potentially delivering up to 465 horsepower, while a rumored twin-turbocharged ‘F’ variant could approach 600 ponies.
Additional details could surface ahead of the concept’s official debut next week.
