Autocar is reporting the next-generation Lexus LS will debut at the Tokyo Motor Show this year, backing up an earlier report from Motoring Australia. The article also touches on possible drivetrain configurations:
Unconfirmed reports suggest that the new range-topping saloon from Toyota’s luxury brand will be powered by a V8 hybrid powertrain developing around 535bhp.
A V8-powered LS, without the hybrid system, is tipped to develop around 465bhp.
These numbers also sync up with Motoring Australia, which likely means Autocar is using the earlier article as its source. Still, where there’s smoke, there’s fire, right?
