Lexus planned on waiting until July 30 to completely reveal the 2013 LS460 F Sport, but the Internet laughs at PR calendars. So Lexus' latest flagship has had its mug leaked three days in a row. (First here, then officially here, and don't forget earlier spy shots from a Korean website showing the car in the metal) Today's round of leaked images details every inch of hard-edged charm the updated big Lexus brings to the party.

We aren't sure what changes are in store for the interior, but since this is a refresh, expect revisions in detail as opposed to an overhaul. A keen-eyed member of the Club Lexus forum discovered one possible alteration: an immense nav screen of perhaps 12 or 14 inches. With just one day to go, perhaps that story will actually wait for tomorrow's official unveiling, along with the other LS trim levels.

      Not a huge fan of the spindle grille, but I dare say this is the best execution of it so far. It looks better when it's all blacked-out from top to bottom, and not broken up by a body coloured bumper.

      Why about the guts? If this is just a body kit, then I'll pass on even thinking it should exist...lame

      What is the difference between this and the new redesigned Lexus GS ? They look like the same car, just different length. Please Lexus, just go away.

        What's the difference between Lexus and Cadillac? Lexus doesn't keep making same car for decades. People actually buy Lexus cars. Lexus doesn't need bailout.

        Same thing for the A4/A6/A8 or the 3 Series/5 Series/7 Series. What's your point, troll?

          LOL... Cadillacftw I agree with HK. You opinion is a joke considering your posting name. We get it you like Cadillac and everything Cadillac. By all means post your opinion but you lack credibility with an obvious bias toward Cadillac. BTW I do love the CTS-V. I happen to like Lexus, Infiniti, BMW, and Audi too.

        If Lexus copies Audi's grill, Audi should retaliate by copying Lexus's reliability.

        You haven't seen the Audi grill. They're a much different shape. This Lexus's grill looks more like a Mitsubishi Lancer's.

          derp. Obviously Lexus has pinched the sides, but they are following the same trend set by Audi.

      I would be ashamed to be seen in a lexus. Only old diaper wearing uneducated peasants who can't afford the real thing drive these POS. Ugly, unresponsive, lazy, no character and boring as hell. Finally the characteristics of the owner matches that of the car. BRAVO toyota for fooling so many american senile nursing home candidates!... just to be clear; the same comment is valid for the infiniti and the acura, just so we don't have any delusions that those boremobiles are any better!!

        It doesn't deserve being called a car used to trick "American Senile Nursing Home Candidates." With the new outside features of this car, even with the new GS's interior would be a proper modernization for this car. OH. And you're saying YOU'D be ashamed in a Lexus? If you're a Lexus owner, OTHER Lexus owners would be ashamed.

      Nothing like a Lexus-related posts to bring the trolls out full-force. When the trolls come in with their copy & paste B.S., that's when you know Lexus did something truly right.

      quick! what's the difference between this and the old LS? a fugly "spindle" grille. they haven't done jack $hit with the side and rear and they're still attempting that fugly combination of mercedes' swoop and bmw's hockey stick C pillar that just doesn't work. oh, and it'll probably drive/sound like the bland appliance it was born to be despite the "sporty" body work. one more reason i'll never buy a toyota product.

          LOL @ a Lexus Fanboy....i didn't know such a thing existed. You must like really awful design and very numb driving characteristics. Then again you are "desi" so your loyalties to rubbish japanese cars is a genetically inherited trait, surely.

      If this isn't a full redesign, it needs it. You dont slap an aggressive face on a vanilla body, just doesnt flow well.

      First of all, the sides aren't nearly as boring as the audi A8's (which haven't changed in 20 years), the 7-series is easily the ugliest BMW ever produced and has no place in this class (other than performance) until they overhaul that POS, and the S-class is the most geriatric model in the mercedes lineup, i can't imagine anybody under 50 in one unless they were being driven. So tired of all the haters just jealous of the most well built luxury cars on the planet now have some flavor and respectable performance. Lexus is stepping their game up, can't believe how many people are bothered by that.. PS at least the border of the spindle grille is full length on the LS as opposed to half on the GS, every grille in the audi and BMW lineups are IDENTICAL, god forbid a non-euro automaker has a signature grille...

        No one is denying that Lexus isn't stepping up their game however one cannot fail to notice the BMW 7 Series taillights. Just like the current LS in which the rear resembles the previous "Bangle butt" 7 series, what gives, can't Toyota come with their own design theme for the rear??

          umm you do know that BMW took the tailights from lexus ? You have it backwords. The LED in the LS tailights make the letter L . So um yea

          Actually, L shaped taillights first appeared on the 1990 body style BMW 7-Series.

        Regardless of other good qualities, that grill is an aesthetic terror attack. It lacks any sense of originality, harmony or creativity. There were so many other cars that used this design approach (Audi, Veloster, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo) and Lexus's solution is by far the ugliest, it is a total mismatch to the car's intended image.

          I have to agree with you about that grill. It's not cool.

      From the CT to the new GS and this new LS, I'm liking all of the new Lexus designs. Very nice job. I know the interior will be stunning like in the new GS.
