Lexus has announced plans to introduce the 2013 LS at a special event in San Francisco on July 30th.

The company declined to release pictures, but said the lineup will consist of the LS 460, LS 460 F SPORT, LS 460 L and LS 600h L. This seems to imply that engine options will carryover, but nothing is official as of yet. Regardless, the current LS 460 has a 4.6-liter V8 engine that produces 357 hp (266 kW / 362 PS) and 367 lb-ft (497 Nm) of torque. Likewise, the LS 600h uses a 5.0-liter V8 and an electric motor to create a combined output of 438 hp (327 kW / 444 PS).

The LS 460 F SPORT is a new addition to the lineup and it will likely have an aerodynamic body kit in the same vein as the RX F SPORT.
