The 2013 Lexus LS has escaped on to the web 48 hours before the official reveal with a full set of exterior photos.
Just yesterday, Lexus responded to the leak of a couple of photos of the 2013 Lexus LS by issuing a single photo of the exterior of their ‘New’ LS.
What they’ll do now a full set of exterior photos of both the regular 2013 LS and 2013 LS F Sport have escaped on to the net we can only guess, although it seems unlikely they’ll do the official reveal until Monday as they planned.
With the reveal of a full set of photos it now seems certain that the 2013 LS is nothing more than a facelift, and not the new LS we’d been expecting.
Lexus already gave the current LS – which has been with us for six years – a bit of a tweak in 2009 so we thought it was time for a new model. But unless Lexus has subscribed the Porsche 911 school of car design the 2013 LS is just a titivate.
The usual lights and bumpers update are apparent and the grill has been changed for the latest Lexus grill and Lexus has given the bonnet a crease running up the middle.
What is new is the F Sport version of the LS, but that appears to be nothing more than a cosmetic job with bigger air vents, butch bumpers, side skirts and a set of decent looking alloys.
So far we have nothing on the interior of the new LS, but on this evidence don’t expect much beyond trim tweaks, a new Infotainment and extra options.
What we don’t know will be revealed when the 2013 Lexus LS officially debuts on Monday.
