Imagining the Lexus RX F-Sport

TLE reader Shamiz has just sent me some cellphone quick pics from an as-of-yet unidentified Japanese magazine that shows this rendering of the rumored Lexus RX F-Sport (click for a larger version):

While I don’t think Ultrasonic Blue and the RX mix well together, I do like the application of the GS’ new spindle grille, especially with the blacked-out bumper — I would certainly expect a more exciting set of wheels, though.

The image also opens up another train-of-thought, outside of the F-Sport package — it stands to reason that the RX will be adopting the spindle grille when the crossover receives its mid-cycle update, and ignoring the mesh grille, the result could look very similar.

(Thanks Shamiz!)
