Toyota's luxury brand Lexus released the first official teaser shots of the new LF-Gh hybrid concept car, which will make its world debut at the upcoming 2011 New York International Auto Show (April 22 – May 11). The name of the concept stands for Lexus Future Grand Touring Hybrid, and according to the Japanese company,the LF-Gh “sets out to redefine the premium grand touring sedan.”
Lexus says that the concept model will give a new meaning to the brand's L-Finesse design philosophy, with the car sporting a bolder, more distinct appearance. The company added that many of the thoughts and ideas found on the concept “may migrate to future Lexus vehicles on a global scale.”
Judging from the letter "G" of the car's name, the concept could preview the next generation GS premium sedan, although there is no official mention of this in the Spartan press release.
The two teaser photos show fragments of the front and rear ends, which display more aggressive and sharp looking headlights and taillights. The front photo also offers a glimpse of the car's massive grille and what appears to be an aerodynamic element or a brake vent located in the low corner of the heavily sculpted bumper. The rear photo only shows the car's taillights, which have an intricate design. There is also an aperture below the taillight, most likely located there for styling reasons.
Lexus didn't offer any technical details about its hybrid concept, but we should expect to find out more about it in the two weeks remaining before the unveiling.
