Lexus LF-Gh Concept - the video
Lexus teased us with the LF-Gh Concept ahead of its debut at the New York Motor Show this month, and this week dropped a pile of LF-Gh photos and some outline information on us. And we were a bit dismissive.
A bit dismissive because we were expecting/hoping for something more than a concept which points the way to the next generation GS, which is what we’ve actually got.
But on reflection, is the Lexus LF-Gh Concept that bad? Well, no, of course it’s not, even if it does look far more ‘Concept’ than anything else, with its huge grill and angular, aggressive looks.
But maybe this is the route forward for Lexus. They’ve already demonstrated a predilection for ‘Pimped’ cars with mad Lexus models at SEMA and the LF-Gh could, with just a more garish paint job, fit in very well with those extreme Lexus.
But maybe, with a bit of taming, this will be the 2012 Lexus GS. We’re already wondering if it will be a plug-in hybrid as Lexus has given us no information whatsoever on the powertrain. Maybe this LF-Gh could return as the long-promised Lexus GS-F, complete with a 500bhp V8? That’d get our interest.
Maybe we’ll get more information at New York. Until then, we’ve acquired a video of the LF-Gh Concept for you to have a properly good look, and make up your mind.
