The 2015 Tokyo Motor Show that opens on October 28 will host the Japanese debut of the facelifted 2016 Lexus GS and the first-ever Lexus GS F, as well as the world premiere of a mysterious new concept that expresses the brand’s “future vision of progressive luxury”.
The fifth-gen Lexus LS was reported to be the secret new model premiering at the motor show but the company denied having any such plans.
The new concept could however be the forerunner to the next-gen LS. The first teaser of the concept has been released and it hints at exposed triple-L shaped LED headlights, a sculpted bumper with chrome garnish, a very sharp grille edge finished in chrome and a V-shaped hood. All in all, it’s a typical Lexus front fascia, but with more boldness and new styling.
A possibility is also that this concept may not be for the fifth generation LS. Perhaps, it could be a near-production development of the Lexus LF-LC Blue concept that would evolve into a flagship grand tourer going head-to-head with the Mercedes S-Class Coupe and the BMW 6 Series Coupe. A prototype was spied testing in the U.S. this year several times and is said to be called the Lexus LC.
