Lexus LF-Gh Hybrid Concept

The LF-Gh Hybrid Concept is a tease of the next GS midsize luxury sports sedan. But more importantly, it's a contradiction on wheels. According to Mark Templin, Lexus Division group vice president and general manager, "Customers have been waiting for a bold concept like this from Lexus." Really? Most Lexus buyers I know are waiting for their Canada Pension Plan cheques to arrive in the mail. Besides, has anyone from Lexus asked Acura how offering "bold" designs to a stodgy customer base is going?But let's just say that Lexus customers are ready for the concept's razor-sharp creases. Even then, the "bold" LF-Gh Hybrid isn't original. Lexus designers seemingly cribbed from Audi for the front end, while the back end of the concept pays homage to former BMW head pen Chris Bangle and his famous "butt" designs.
