Looks as if Lexus didn't get the memo that says are supposed to look ridiculous. The company's unveilified a new LF-Gh hybrid concept ahead of the New York auto show -- and it looks meaner than a junkyard dog that's just self-neutered itself on a raggeddy bit of scrap metal.
The LF-Gh has a clutch of styling highlights, including a new 'spindle' front grille that looks terrifying enough to startle small children and make airborne vermin consider depositing their filth elsewhere.
The LF-Gh's designers have also supplied a set of ginormous air intakes below the Audi-esque LED fog lamps. These reduce drag and improve cooling by passing air from the front through to a pair of air outlets located by the BMW-esque wraparound brake lights at the rear.
The LF-Gh is powered by Lexus' Hybrid Drive technology -- a fact highlighted by the blue LED-backlit Lexus Hybrid Drive badges on the front grille and on the bootlid. Lexus is remaining tight-lipped about the specifics of the hybrid propulsion system, but given the car's size and aggressive looks, we don't expect it to be too far removed from the existing .
If that assumption proves true, the LF-Gh should achieve a 0-62mph acceleration time in the region of 6 seconds, a top speed of around 150mph, CO2 emissions of less than 180g/km and combined fuel economy of 36.7mpg.
That's pretty much all we know about the LF-Gh for the moment, but feel free to have a gander through our photo gallery above or watch the video below to get a closer look. More on this bad boy as we get it.
