10First Lexus Super Bowl ad to star 2013 GS

Given a moment's thought, it's a little surprising that Lexus, a luxury brand that changed the game, has never run an ad during the Super Bowl. But the home of L-Finesse not only has nine new or updated cars coming out this year, led by the 2013 GS, it has a new attitude, which will be "uncontained" in a 30-second spot while the Niners play the Patriots the NFL champion is decided.

Lexus' Best Compromise Yet

372013 Lexus GS 450h does the electric slide

What might the 2013 Lexus GS 450h add to the additional performance goodness delivered in the 2012 Lexus GS 350? More power and more fuel efficiency, for starters. The second-gen hybrid system boots out 338 total horsepower for a 5.6-second sprint to 60 mph. That's 32 hp more than the GS 350 and a 0.1-second improvement on the stoplight run.

It's weird for us to report on leaked photos of a car that we've already driven, but we still haven't seen the completely finished 2012 Lexus GS. The sedan will make its public debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance this coming weekend, but it appears that photos of the unwrapped prototype has already leaked onto the web.

AddUK police to use Lexus GS 450h in "demanding police roles"

After a recent tip from Mike at Treehugger, I'm finally posting about these sweet-looking Lexus RX 400h hybrid cop cars. Now, they're not so cool looking that I want one in my rearview mirror, but if they did, I'd at least have to thank the officer for mixing a little green with the chubby blue line (that's a MST3K reference, just so you know).

7Lexus planning hybrid supercar?

When we last posted about Lexus' long-awaited LF-A supercar, which debuted at the 2005 Detroit Auto Show (photo at right), it was to announce that the production version of the car would make its debut as the pace car for the 2007 Japanese Grand Prix. Well, as we get ever-closer to production, the latest news on Toyota's supercar is that it will be available in both gasoline and hybrid versions.

23Lexus hybrid shows well in first endurance race

Autoblog readers will recall that we reported on Lexus' plans to enter a modified GS450h hybrid in a 24-hour endurance race last month. Well, the race has been run, the results are in, and the big Denso-sponsored Lexus came home a remarkable 4th in class and 17th overall. Making the result even more significant is the fact that the Tokachi 24 hour race marked the first time a hybrid vehicle had entered an FIA-sanctioned circuit race.

AddLexus GS 450h review in Belfast Telegraph

Which politicians are driving what type of cars is causing a bit of a tizzy in Great Britain. While an article in today's Belfast Telegraph mentions the issue, their main concern is reviewing the new Lexus GS 450h. Their verdict is that the car is better for the environment than other executive machines, but the hype surrounding the car is a bit overblown. Three main Lexus propaganda points (lower emissions than any other combustion engine, best safety system and the "world's most technologicall
