It only took me a slight bit of an effort to find the leaked video XD
I gotta say...exterior wise it looks just as expected (if it ain't broken, don't fix it)
The interior overall looked fresh but that screen in the middle is straight up a toyota copy
or should I say...the whole interior space is heavily influenced by mirai which I wasn't sure if it is a good or bad move (sharing parts to save cost)
I was originally hoping to see more cues from the LF-1...oh well
One thing I'm pretty sure though is it will still sell like a hot cake

To confirm with Gecko it was a serious mistake. I’ve spoken to Lexus and they are grateful we took the link down and they are attempting to rectify things immediately.

Lucky some of us don’t sleep Hahahha..

Some of you saw something special you weren’t supposed to see yet :)
Lol late night luck.

The mirai was the new GS.

Toyota screwed up with associating that interior style with the mirai. Basically cratered the market positioning of their new interior styling.

JUST STOP SHARING PARTS WITH TOYOTA. STOP IT. SHARE THE PARTS PEOPLE CAN'T SEE. STOP.

Honestly, Toyota name is a powerful name with a long heritage

And I see nothing wrong sharing parts with Lexus

In Aus / Africa / Mideast people love the name and considering it as a premium name already!

Another point is that VAG shared even the mirror caps between it's cars and even though, every car has a unique look

Edit:01
In Russia the most modified car is the Camry

The most original cars are MarkX and Crown even we get it with the RHD and modified it's body

Sharing parts is not a problem. I believe that you are against sharing styling? Two vehicles can look alike -- just as the interior of the Gen2 NX looks similar to the the Gen2 Mirai -- even if they do not obviously share any parts. Or how all Mercedes-Benz sedans, from the C-Class up to the S-Class all look alike, even the C-Class, E-Class and S-Class do not share any body panels.
