Following yesterday's leaked photos Lexus has released via Facebook and Twitter a photo of the 2013 Lexus LS ahead of its full media release scheduled for July 30th.

Pictured here is the LS 460 F Sport which shows an evolutionary design with new headlights, a spindle grille and larger air vents. The familiar styling carries over to the rear end where there are tinted taillights and a dual exhaust system.

Engines are expected to carry over to the 2013 model with the LS460 getting a 4.6 liter V8 with around 380 hp (283 kW / 385 PS) and the choice of front- or all-wheel-drive. The top-of-the-range LS600h Hybrid will have a 5.0-liter V8 along with electric motors to produce 438 hp (327 kW / 444 PS).
