LEXUS FLAGSHIP CONCEPT TO DEBUT AT TOKYO MOTOR SHOW

The comprehensive renewal of the Lexus product range will reach another milestone at the Tokyo Motor Show next week with the unveiling of a new flagship saloon concept.

First details of the new concept vehicle will be announced at the show on 19 October, sustaining the momentum of Lexus’s development as a global prestige manufacturer.

The flagship concept will be exhibited alongside the GS 450h, a hybrid power version of the newly-launched GS premium saloon range that is set for production in 2006. Combining a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine with a powerful electric motor, it delivers performance comparable to a conventional 4.5-litre power unit, while returning fuel economy comparable to a standard 2.0-litre saloon. The combined power output of the GS 450h hybrid system will be around 340bhp.

Also on view will be the radical Lexus LF-A concept, a two-seater supercar powered by a high-output V10 engine. The LF-A concept is 4,400mm long, 1,860mm wide and 1,220mm high.
