Lexus LS 460 News
It's been leak city for the 2013 Lexus LS line, allowing us to catch the exteriors of the LS 460 L and LS 460 F Sport from practically every angle. The spindle grille might be the most prominent story of the refreshed LS – otherwise there are no monumental changes to the body, but plenty of details did decide to wait for the Lexus luxury flagship's official unveiling in San Francisco.
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.
Ladies and gentlemen, your 2013 Lexus LS 460 F Sport has arrived. Lexus won't be officially unwrapping its new flagship until next Monday, July 30, but the automaker has decided to reveal this single image of the car early via its Facebook page.
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.

Lexus has announced the automaker will show off its new 2013 LS line in San Francisco on July 30. The shindig will be an invitation-only event, thought the premium automaker isn't serving up too many details beyond the locale and the date. The LS family will eventually be available in a total of four variants, including a racier-looking F Sport model. We're also holding out hope that eventually the much fussed-over LS TMG Edition we've seen racing around the Nürburgring recently will make t
We hope you like the look of the new Lexus GS. The Japanese luxury automaker has made it clear it aims to spread the new "spindle" grille found on the sedan across the brand. During an interview with Takayuki Katsuda, chief engineer for the RX line, four teaser images were splashed across the screen, including what looks to be the next-generation LS. If that's true, the model will wear a heavily accented version of the Predator maw, complete with a chrome or brushed metal accent frame. Likewise,
Lexus fans are abuzz over the sight of a potential new LS-based super sedan, and details about the mystery machine are leaking out across the intertubes. The folks at AutoGuide have somehow managed to get shots of the Nürburgring-running prototype parked in a garage along witha a conveniently displayed spec sheet which gives us a lot more information about the sporty four door shown testing on the 'Ring.
We spy, with the lens of our spy guy, a rather unique Lexus LS that's taken to the track. Spotted lapping Germany's Nürburgring, this particular LS is wearing puffed-out fenders, a strongly styled decklid spoiler, what appears to be a faux nose hiding new bodywork, deep side skirts and a pair of vents on the hood. Something sporty is afoot, and we're itching to know more.
