2013 Lexus GS 450h revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show

Lexus has revealed the 2013 GS 450h, ahead of its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Looking virtually identical to the standard model, the hybrid is distinguished by three-lamp headlights, blue-tinted logos and 17-inch alloy wheels. Interior changes are minor, but include bamboo wood trim and a hybrid display for the infotainment system.

Power is provided by an Atkinson-cycle 3.5-liter V6 engine and an electric motor. This gives the car a maximum output of 338 hp (252 kW / 343 PS), which enables it to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds and hit a limited top speed of 131 mph (211 km/h).

In terms of efficiency, Lexus says the fuel consumption has been reduced by more than 30 percent. To achieve this, engineers installed a new Power Control Unit and improved regenerative brakes.
