Lexus checked in from the Pebble Beach Concours d' Elegance this week, unveiling the latest 2016 Lexus GS models -- the latest being the GS 200t.

The new 2016, rear-wheel model sports a bolder design and new luxury finishes. We also see a strong rendition of the Lexus signature spindle grille for 2016, framed by elegant satin chrome trim and flanked by distinctive new standard Bi-LED headlights, allowing it to glown in the night time.

A new front bumper and rocker panel design were added to sharpened the coupe-inspired profile, and extends to revised taillights, a revised rear trim and new 18- and 19-inch machine-finish wheel designs.

Also being new, the 2016 GS offers new exterior colors, such as Matador Red Mica, Nightfall Mica and Ultrasonic Blue Mica 2.0. The mica colors use a complex multi-layered, twice-baked process previously used only for concept vehicles or custom cars.

On the interior, the car introduces a number of trim selections, including laser cut wood, Matte Walnut and Linear 3D, while the F SPORT gets Naguri aluminum. New colors include Chateau and Noble Brown, alongside the F Sport's Rioja Red.

The 2016 Lexus GS 200t should hit dealers later this year.
