A new front end image of the Lexus LF-Ch concept has either been leaked or revealed, either way it's been making its way around the 'net.

The concept features the same L-Finesse design elements that we've seen on previous Lexus concepts. For example, hints of the IS and HS are can be found in the shape of the bumper and headlamps, while the air intake shapes echo the LF-A concept.

While I don't think the LF-Ch concept is as pretty as her sisters, but perhaps she's got a great personality. We'll keep our fingers crossed for Lexus to do something interesting with the powertrain, rather than drop another variant of Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive under the hood--which for the record, is exactly what we think they'll do.

Stay tuned to our continuing coverage of the 2009 Frankfurt auto show for more details as they emerge.
