MORE PICS IN HERE: 2010 Lexus Ls Leaked Brochure — Autoblog

Autoblog said:
To say that Lexus designs tend more toward the "evolutionary" than "revolutionary" would be like saying that Rasputin had a bit of a violent streak. Case in point: The new LS sedan, which the Toyota luxury division has apparently updated for next year in typical Lexus style. That is, incrementally different from the model it replaces, with styling tweaks barely visible to the naked eye. At least, not at first glance.

Early images of the redesigned flagship sedan come courtesy of The Lexus Enthusiast, which has managed to get hold of what looks to be a leaked JDM brochure for the vehicle ahead of its official launch. Visible changes made to the LS 460 and the gas-electric LS 600h include new front and rear bumpers and lights, turn signals integrated into the mirror housings, and of course, new wheels.

Inside, the cabin gets a mild refresh as well to integrate a night vision system into the instrument cluster, right in the middle of the speedo. There's also a customization program called L-Select, and the anticipated LS-Sport "Version SZ", characterized as an aggressive take on the luxury yacht with a more assertive aero package, wheels and grille treatment.

That's about all we've got for now.

Looks like a mid-cycle refresh... I think it looks good... except for that hybrid grille. that looks HIDEOUS... makes it look like a freaking Avalon.

The two-toned interior looks interesting... although I think they suit cars like the IS more than the LS. The new instrument panel looks really nice!

Sharpened an already sharp car. Now they just need to add two turbochargers to that wonderful 4.6L V8 to remain competitive. It seems everyone else is going to be in the 400+ hp range soon (BMW already is and MB is darn close).

Doesn't the S550 have 380hp aswell?

I like it, especially the interior.
This makes me love the LS even more. :p
The speedometer looks pretty neat and unique. As for the interior, I like the dual tone, but I agree with the above, they should offer it for "sportier" models like the IS.
