2013 Lexus LS F SPORT Revealed

Only days away from its official reveal, Chinese website XCAR has published photos of what looks to be the 2013 Lexus LS F SPORT:

If accurate, this new LS F SPORT features the most aggressive interpretation of the Lexus spindle grille yet, with a full chrome surround and even a blacked out front bumper. Add the super-tinted windows and hybrid LED headlights, and the Lexus flagship sedan looks downright hostile.

Here’s the LS from another angle:

Here we see an overall design similar to the existing LS, though with some added sharpness and plenty of inspiration from the 2013 GS — let’s put it side-by-side with the 2012 model for good measure:

Despite any resemblance, the exterior changes give the LS a different character — especially in this F SPORT trim.

Still, considering that highly polished images aren’t always the best representation of a vehicle, and we have yet to see the interior, I’m going to wait until the actual reveal in San Francisco next Monday before coming to any real conclusions.

What are your initial impressions?
