The 450h will be Lexus’ attempt at delivering V8 performance with a hybrid 3.5L V6 powerplant. While we can’t see any styling changes in these teasers, we anticipate there to be some slight changes – possibly to enhance aerodynamics – but Lexus is staying true to its hybrid branding by including blue-themed badges on the 450h.
The F Sport version will deliver a more aggressive design with F Sport badging and 19-inch wheels. Also look for a more performance-tuned suspension setup, as well as upgraded brakes and some minor interior trim upgrades.
The GS450h will debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September, with the GS F-Sport set to be unveiled at the SEMA Show.
