Lexus Teases “Masked Machine” on Twitter

As strange as it seems, Lexus has posted a photo on Twitter of a mystery vehicle hanging in the air from a crane:

Lexus Mystery Vehicle

The accompanying tweet reads:

It’s on a crane and under a cover. What is this masked machine?

Considering the ES is debuting next Tuesday at the New York International Auto Show, I’d say it’s a safe bet to be the masked machine under the blue tarp — in fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the ES being delivered to the Javits Center for its unveiling next week.

(The car’s identity notwithstanding, how about those LFA-inspired wheels? So awesome.)

Update: Looks like it is the next-gen ES — Lexus updated Twitter with this photo:

2013 Lexus ES 350 Revealed

If this is indeed the specific ES that will be on display next week at NYIAS, it’s a great debut color.

    What about the door??
    Y
    The door line is very close to the front wheels , that won't happens on anything FR ... so , it's clear that this would be a ES (because it's long too) . That also explained , why FF car have bigger cabin space with the same length .

    Yeah FFcars have more interior space due to no driveshaft connecting to rear, transverse engine.. It's a more compact & light setup.. Not to mention FF has no inertia power loss and a car accelerates quicker.. Also easier to perform wheelspin!

    it's going to be hard to put a spindle grill on the GX (i dont like them on SUVs anyway) because it doesnt have the regular lexus trapizoid grill

    I would think so, but the blue tarp is reflecting and confusing my color-blind eyes. :-)
