Lexus will showcase its heavily revamped lineup at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 25, 2013

Lexus thinks that 2013 will be even better than 2012, which had its sales grow 31% compared to the previous year. The luxury car manufacturer will be showing off a heavily modified lineup and special vehicles at the Chicago Auto Show to suggest a new design direction. During the past year, Lexus presented new versions of the ES and LS sedans, and RX and LX sport utility vehicles that all have the new signature spindle grille.

All of these vehicles will be seen at the Chicago show. They will be displayed beside the all-new 2014 Lexus IS F Sport, which recently had its global debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The IS now comes with excellent exterior and interior styling as well as significantly improved driving dynamics. Another vehicle that will be seen in Chicago is the LFA, Lexus’ super car.

The LFA Nurburgring Edition is powered by a 4.8 liter, V10 engine that delivers 562hp. Since the LFA came to the market almost a couple of years ago, the LFA had swiftly gotten a reputation as one of the greatest performance models in the world. In addition, the LF-LC, the winner of the Best Concept award at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show, based on public polling, will also appear in Chicago.

But then, it won’t be the ruby red version they witnessed last year. Rather, this vehicle is the LF-LC Blue Concept, which made its debut last October at the Australian Motor Show. This is the second iteration of the LF-LC Concept that came to Chicago last year. Lexus will also showing off other specially-built products such as an LS modified for the SEMA Show and the orange and black Lexus IS F CCS-R, a one-off IS F which dominated last summer at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
