Lexus Unveils LF-LC Concept

Following the accidentally uncovering of the LF-LC Concept, Lexus has released the first official image of the LF-LC 2+2 sport coupe which will be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 9, 2012.

Lexus released two teasers before in the run-up to the Detroit Auto Show. The first first teaser provided us a glimpse of the car’s front end and the second teaser showed the interior.

The LF-LC is designed by Lexus’s American design studio in Newport Beach — the same place where the Lexus SC430 was drawn — and will showcase the new design direction of the Japanese carmaker. Mark Templin, Lexus group vice president and general manager said:

Crafted from a clean sheet of paper at the request of Lexus headquarters in Japan, the LF-LC blends both high technology and organic shapes to connect the driver to the machine. The clean lines of the vehicle emphasize motion, creating a distinctive look for this futuristic sport coupe.

Lexus did not released any information regarding the LF-LC concept, but the 2+2 sport coupe features a “Hybrid” badge on the rear quarter panels. The Lexus will be positioned in between the current IS convertible and LFA super car and should rival high-end luxury coupes such as the BMW 6-Series and Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

Unless someone screws up once again, more information will follow at the Detroit Motor Show.

  1. How many times do we have to tell toyota that japanese design is just NOT for the western world. Come on my little yellow friends (quoting inspector clouzeau), your cars are great machines but THEY. JUST. DONT. LOOK. GOOD. (HERE.).
