3) The headlamp design with the LED projectors and LED strip look to be the best of all the concepts and production Lexus vehicles.
4) The fog lamp assemblies look small, meaning did they go with projectors...and maybe LED to match the upper?
5) The car sits a lot lower than the current LS Sport. Lets hope it stays this way!!!
what about those 3 interior LED lights on the rear side, where the coat hook is? It seems like it has some ambiance lighting inside?

Don't count on it. Lexus productions models have always sat much higher than their renderings or pre-production versions.

Yup. Definitely not expecting the production wheel gap to look that good, even on the F-Sport.

Be it MMC or not, it is clear that LS is still going to set some future Lexus standards...

Wondering if theyre goin to still use the mesh style headlights. Maybe it will be on the non-Fsport models?

Looks like they are really trying to milk the audi grill with the entire line up.

I am loving the grill and the design of the lights, as well as the shape of the hood. I didn't think I'd like the more aggressive grill but in these photos it looks HOT! I especially like how the grill is recessed more on the bottom 1/2 than on the GS. I also like the dark metallic blue color on this car now that you added some brightness to it. Thanks for posting, Joe.

Can't wait to hear when they start to arrive at the dealerships! I also want to hear what the standard package will be for options and what the fully loaded one will have. Not too interested in the uuber add ons like the variable speed cruise control and park assist but all else is nice to have (heat/vented seats, doors closing fully, etc)

Curious about any upgrades to the sound system especially. So if anyone has any info on details, I would love to hear. My sales rep says she only knows what I know so far, which is not much! Kathy

Lexus has never looked like an Audi.

2013 Lexus LS 460 F Sport gets early Facebook reveal : I am loving the look of the new LS. It definitly looks more like a refresh than a new car which I think sucks. The LS is a bit long in the tooth , especially with the new S class around the corner and the 7 series looking pretty damn good

Am I the only one who feels a bit disappointed by the refresh. I was thinking it was a new car. This is barely a refresh.
