Lexus, the luxury arm of Toyota, has just unveiled the new GS at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in California this past Thursday, August 18.

According to Lexus, the new GS brings a more engaging driving experience, bolder design and a more spacious, contemporary interior.

Starting with the bold spindle grille - set to be a signature feature of future Lexus models - the new GS features an entirely new look, taking several cues from its smaller brother, the CT200h. This is supported by a redesigned chassis with a wide, strong stance that clearly signals the new GS is designed for an inspiring drive, much like the outgoing GS460.

Lexus engineers have developed a more spacious interior environment for the new GS. Leaving exterior dimensions virtually unchanged, they increased cabin and boot space to create a richly appointed interior that will transport passengers and their luggage in comfort, regardless of distance.

The new GS will be powered by an uprated version of their V-6 engine instead of a V-8 like in the current GS460.

The new Lexus GS will be launched at Lexus Manila early 2012.
