Lexus has made it no secret that they will release a concept of the next generation GS sedan at this year's New York Auto Show. Still, the release of two teaser photos has made things all the more real. From the looks of it, the LF-Gh (short for Lexus Future Grand-Touring Hybrid) could be another aggressive move from the brand that had, for a while, gotten a bit vanilla.

Lexus states that the new concept will embody the next step in its "L-Finesse" design language, but from what we can tell, it's anything but just another smooth move. Sleek and angular, the shots, which show little more than a headlight and taillamp, still manage to hint at a bold, edgy look that's decisively Japanese in nature. Check out the automaker's official statement for more fancy marketing talk, and check back soon to see the concept in all its glory.

Lexus LF-Gh Hybrid Concept To Make World Debut at 2011 New York International Auto Show

  • Stylish and assertive concept advances notions of premium luxury
  • Concept explores Lexus' future direction; global design identity evolves
  • Aggressive and bold "spindle" front grille hints at new face of Lexus vehicles

TORRANCE, Calif. (April 5, 2011) – Lexus today announced that the LF-Gh hybrid concept will make its world debut at the 2011 New York International Auto Show.

The LF-Gh, which stands for Lexus Future Grand Touring Hybrid, sets out to redefine the premium grand touring sedan. Through this exercise, the definition of L-Finesse, the marque's design philosophy since 2001, has been refined and evolved to include a bolder, more distinct projection of what a luxury car could become in a modern world. The result is the LF-Gh concept, which conveys original thoughts and ideas that may migrate to future Lexus vehicles on a global scale.

The new concept will be on display in the Lexus exhibit at the New York International Auto Show from April 20 – May 1, 2011.
