    Intersting, I hate the wheels as they are a pain to keep clean. The fender lines make me think they will depart from the Predator grill and go after more of a racing nose to cut the air.

    Should be interesting. Looks like a tight short overhang.

    Why don't they make a car with good styling, instead of making their "F Sport" cars just uglier versions of their already ugly cars. Adding big smoked chrome wheels, big exhaust pipes, a rear spoiler, and big wheel arches doesn't make a sports car. It doesn't work when college kids do that to their 1997 Civic and it doesn't work on a Lexus IS either. Their performance cars aren't even fast, they have 1 car with 1 body style with over 400 hp (the LFA already sold out), compared to Mercedes where every car except CLA and GLK have a 400+ hp model, 10 cars, most of those have a 500+ hp option.

    Predator grill? How about "Pinched Nose" grill? Predator gives it too much credit. The previous generation Lexus grills are not spectacular or particularly unique. But it's not ugly. The current version is pukingly ugly.
