2013 Lexus LS

Lexus is poised to whip the sheets off of the newest interpretation of its LS line in San Francisco next week, but a Chinese website is claiming to have an early peek at the machine. The site showed off two images detailing the majority of the exterior changes, including a new spindle grille and bizarre headlamp arrays with what looks to be three projector lenses per side. Word has it what we see here is the new LS 460 F Sport, complete with more aggressive bodywork. Around back, the images show new taillamps and little else.

We reached out to Lexus to see if the images were accurate or not, but have yet to hear back. Either way, we'll find out just how close this sedan is to the real deal when the 2013 Lexus LS debuts next Monday. The company has already said buyers will be able to pick up their luxury sedan in base LS 460, LS 460 L and LS 600h L guise, in addition to the new F Sport model. Stay tuned.
