• Facelift GS 450h to be unveiled in Frankfurt

If you haven’t noticed by now, Frankfurt will be one of the greatest events of the year. Do you remember the number of the new models that will be unveiled in here? We lost count long time ago. And to that impressive number, Lexus will also add a few models. One of them is the 2008 GS 450h.

The upgraded GS 450h will be launched later this year, featuring subtly re-designed front headlights and improved interior details. It can also be ordered with an electronically activated active stabiliser system in combination with runflat tyre technology.

Traditional front engine with rear-wheel drive lays the foundations for real driving performance, while its 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine was the first in the segment with D-4S dual fuel injection for increased engine efficiency and performance. The GS 450h returns 7.9 l/100km in the combined cycle with CO2 emissions of just 186 g/km – among the lowest in the segment.

Next to the facelift GS there will also be the LS 600h, RX 400h and the IS-F, the high performance version of the acclaimed IS model.
