New Lexus concept to be introduced at upcoming Tokyo Motor Show

With the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show less than a month away, Lexus has announced their line up for the upcoming grand auto show. Toyota's luxury marque will be displaying 11 production models once the show opens on October 25. Furthermore, Lexus will also be revealing an all new concept car during the show's opening.

Lexus has announced that an all new concept vehicle will joining the flagship LS on stage together with the rest of the luxury marque's model line up. As of writing, there are no details yet regarding the concept vehicle, leaving one to speculate on what the concept vehicle could be. Until the show opens on the 25th, we will all just have to wait.

A possiblity is that the new concept vehicle could be the much sportier LS F. A high-performance LS is likely as our spies have previously spotted an LS prototype which was sporting a louder exhaust and additional ducting to the front bumper. If its true, the LS F could be using a more powerful version of Lexus' 4.0-liter biturbo V8 in order to match that of its European rivals.

Apart from the LS F, the Lexus' new concept could also be the new three-row RX, which was also reported to debut in Tokyo. The three-row RX is said to use the same platform and wheelbase, but has a larger rear over hang to fit the third row. Apart from the extended rear section, the three-row RX will likely retain its original factory specification, and could be called the RX L.

Whatever the new concept vehicle is, it will be at the forefront of Lexus' display together with the LS and the LC coupe. Completing the line up will be the updated CT hatchback and NX crossover.
