First look at new Lexus LF-Gh Concept – is this the new GS?

We’re excited to share the first pictures of the brand new Lexus LF-Gh hybrid concept. The car will make its world debut at the 2011 New York International Auto Show from 20 April to 1 May and will signal Lexus’s redefinition of the luxury “grand tourer”.

Immediately ahead of its show stand appearance, LF-Gh (which stands for Lexus Future Grand Touring hybrid) will be revealed to selected media at an exclusive preview event in New York on 19 April.

We’ll update the blog, Facebook and our LF-Gh Concept Flickr set as soon as more information and images are revealed.

  2. The LED on the headlights make the car aggressive, but I find the intakes kind of oversized. I really don’t get it. Why do they need to make a large air intake when it’s a hybrid car.

    1. Hi Nice Cars,

      Thanks for your comment, and apologies for the delayed response.

      The LF-Gh is very much a design concept and not a production vehicle, so the design of both the LED lights and the air intake may be changed for the production version. The Lexus Hybrid Drive system incorporates a petrol engine, so air intake is still vital for cooling.

      Even if they are redesigned, the LED lights will definitely remain as every new type of passenger car must feature daytime running lights as per the European Commission’s requirements.

      Thanks for your feedback on the LF-Gh, and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have further questions.

    1. Hi Chris,

      The LF-Gh is a brand new hybrid concept car developed by Lexus. Unfortunately we can’t give you more details about future production models at this stage, however LF-Gh is a strong hint at the next generation mid-size executive saloon from Lexus. More details will be announced over the coming months. Thanks for your question.
