"It looks like this"

"It looks like that"

"LED's are from Audi"

"headlamps looks like BMW"


Come on...seriously?

Ok, so I did this in photoshop and I really hope that it is not going to look like that in real life!

8 speed across the GS lineup? Like all of the other auto luxury makers are doing.

autobots, roll out !!!!


man, if this gets slammed by the press, then epic fail by the "expert panel" of designers. That would be embarrassing, considering their expertise.

Well if you make silly PS's like that with an Autobot sign on the front spoiling a good PS, well yes, people with the brain of a cactus will steal the pic, put it on forums and blast it.

Great job

What a bunch of negative Nancy's. We see 2 small teasers for crying out loud. I can't wait for the concept to debut and the same people throw it under the bus.

LFA, CT, etc etc 2 teasers, bash bash bash....

Again, really hope we're missing something here because this really is disgusting.

This car straight up looks like a Transformer in this shop. dunnojack isn't saying he doesn't want Lexus and their "expert designers" to be embarrassed by this car if it looks like this, he's saying that THEY WILL be embarrassed by this car if it looks like this.

I really like the tail lights. The design and aggressiveness of the tail lights are extremely important to me when shopping for a car.

since when did calling a car a "transformer" become offensive?

If that is the case, comparing it to Predator is even worse.

The reason why I mention Audi...

In the rear, the taillights are somewhat rectangular and flow right into the decklid with a strong upper accent line. The rear decklid itself has a kick up as it has an integrated rear spoiler.

Now in the front, that large front grille that carries from the hood edge all the way to the lower air dam of the front bumper. The only difference between the Audi and the LF-Gh is that the defining chrome accent around the grille LF-Gh is more of an hourglass shape.

I honestly think those headlamps are designed in a way to exaggerate the hard edgy looks of the car. From an aerodynamic standpoint, that actual design wouldn't work. The LED design of course follows some form of "L" design which is pretty evident in the current 2011 IS headlamp with HID/Led running lamps.

Same with the rear brake lamp treatment. "L"s all over...

Not that the Audi-look is a bad thing, but of course its better if the inspiration for a concept is not so similar to the competitors.
