09/13/2011—What is it with Lexus making bold statements in Germany these days?
First of all, the Lexus LFA goes ahead and breaks a record this month at Germany’s Nürburgring racetrack.
And then this week, Lexus stormed the Frankfurt Motor Show by unveiling the 2013 Lexus GS 450h, the hybrid version of the redesigned GS.
Like the 2013 GS gas version that Lexus revealed in Pebble Beach last month, the GS Hybrid sports the new spindle-shaped grill design—which looks especially cool, I might add, with the blue Lexus-hybrid badging.
I'm not saying Lexus’ German competitors should be a little uncomfortable in their own house...except that, actually, I am saying that.
Next up: the GS F Sport at SEMA in November.
