The mysterious concept could be a high performance LS F model getting powered by a twin turbocharged V8 engine
Lexus will be debuting a brand new concept at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show scheduled for the end of this month. Making the home premiere is a mystery concept as the speculations regarding what it would be point towards several possibilities. The Japanese luxury auto major has revealed very little about the model leaving the doors wide open for the rumour mill to hop in.
A media report suggested during the launch of the LS that a high performance variant of the LS F will be broken covers in Tokyo. As oppose to the 3.5-litre V6 twin-turbocharged engine in the LS500 and the Hybrid V6 in the LS500h, the LS F was said to come strapped with a V8 engine with two turbochargers. If the concept was going to be the LS F, we might see it in close to production guise alone.
The next possible option could be an RX crossover with seven seat configuration and it was already reported to feature a lengthened area near the rear axle. Another model that could arrive in concept form is the next generation of the CT hatchback or perhaps a much appreciated road-going version of the UX crossover concept?
The luxury arm of Toyota could pull the trigger off the new ES sedan as well as it is due for an update soon. Going by the erstwhile generations, the ES could appear within twelve months of the launch of the Camry sedan. Speculations surrounding the upcoming ES sedan are very large as it is expected to be based on the new front wheel drive derivative of the TNGA platform (Toyota New Global Architecture).
It may replace the GS sedan in some international markets with sporty looks and upgraded interior. Whatever the concept could have been, we will definitely have you covered when Tokyo Motor Show opens for media. It will be joined on stage by the facelifted CT, updated NX, new versions of LC Coupe and LS.
