looks like it could just be getting the refresh it's bound to get in a year or two.

Hmm where are all these photos of the asian cars coming from with the yellow tape and cardboard on them? They all seem to be from the same place/angle.

I'm not sure if it's the original source, but I know that these types of images were printed in the Japanese magazine Mag-X...

As for this mule, the bumper indicates that it's a hybrid, so perhaps it's a mule for a next gen Hybrid Synergy Drive? Or perhaps a refresh to differentiate it more from the non-hybrid model?

the RX350 is coming in May 2006...but as RetroJapan said, this is the hybrid...

my guess is that they are putting the GS hybrid system in this car to get more power with the refresh

or maybe the refreshed RX is getting the hybrid grill, but i doubt it since lexus wants the hybrid to stand out more

i hope your write there about it using the GS hybrid system... thatd be awesome

Lexus didnt do a really good job making the GS450h stand out more then the GS300/430.... only difference visually are the alloys that i can notice... i was hoping they wouldva changed the grille and bumper too...
