Lexus looks to the future with its LS+ Concept saloon

Yesterday, car maker Lexus debuted one of its most exciting new concepts at the Tokyo Motor Show - the automated driving-enabled LS+ Concept model. It also celebrated the 10th anniversary of its “F” sports models with new limited edition versions of the high-performance RC F and GS F.

The LS+ Concept, equipped with a raft of state-of-the-art technologies, represents what a future Lexus LS flagship saloon might offer. This includes the signature spindle grille, which features a shutter mechanism that improves cooling performance and the vehicle’s overall aerodynamic quality. Even the headlamps and rear lights have been revamped, incorporating lasers for illumination, and electronic side mirrors.

Then there's those aforementioned limited edition models with special specifications to mark the 10th anniversary of the 'F' range. Details include performance shock absorbers and titanium exhaust silencers to raise the level of performance even higher. Just 50 units of these special versions of the RC F coupe and GS F saloon will be built, for sale exclusively in Japan, from spring 2018.
