That steering wheel in Lexus... Front is pretty cool and futuristic but the side is waaaaaay too American - just hidious. And yes I know Lexus is Japanese.

Not a fan of it, but this is the only thing I like more than the F30. I think Lexus got it directly from the LFA.

The only design feature they got right on that car are the taillights.... and the fact that it has four wheels.

I like it. LFA-style gauge looks great(although the scaling looks a little off in photos), and I happen the like the odd-exterior style, especially the rear-end.

What's up with that ugly grill/front end????? I'm kinda disappointed because I've always liked Lexus' newer designs.

Yet another reason why I can't stand Lexus... Proportions are all off. The interior isn't bad though.

Why is the badge backwards on the 2nd photo? And what environment did they shoot these "photos" in? Doesn't look like a remotely real background to me.

Jason may have switched it to make the comparison easier.

Sides and rear are quite nice really, front hideous and overstyled.

+1 The interior (Gauge cluster) and rear portion of the vehicle are nice

. The side view of the car is so plan it needs a body line. The front end looks like it will be great at scooping up all kind of road varmits and ex's. lol

BMW vs. Mercedes vs. Audi vs. Lexus vs. Alfa Romeo (back in the game).
I do too, I absolutely love the GS, I think with some aftermarket wheels this might look really good. I'm look forward to seeing it in person.
