Lexus LF-Ghs Concept unveiled

Here ya go folks

http://www.autoblog.com/2011/04/12/l...ew-york-debut/

the autoblog comment section is as usual filled with hate, nothing new down there.

I think the grill gives the Audi-vibe otherwise im digging it and the design direction.

I think beside the headlight, everything is German. Seriously, is that the L design language? They lost the originality, but this one looks good tho. Hopefully the grill won't be this way.

Grill needs to be toned down slightly...but it is aggressive, i say keep that pinched/razor/aggressive look but no need to take it alll the way down.

I like everything but that grille...please Lexus, don't pull an Acura!

Also, I'm very interested about this "all-new analog clock with a three-dimensional face"

I agree besides the inward pointing grille stuff it looks nice, although awfully like an Audi...better than the generic looking stuff from Lexus though so I guess that's good.
