Lexus LF-LC NAIAS 2012

Toyota says: “The concept hybrid 2+2 liberates the idea of a sport coupe and pushes the boundaries of performance, style and technology.” Mark Templin, Lexus group vice president and general manager

Spec Sheet: The front-engine, rear-wheel drive LF-LC features Advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive, delivering both driving performance and fuel efficiency.

Unlike the Acura NSX, the Lexus LF-LC is not intended to be a production vehicle, but a design study to advance the redefinition of Lexus with emotive, avant-garde beauty and advanced technology, yet remain within reach for premium buyers. Chosen as the EyesOn Design Concept of the show, the design has more little details than I could list in a space twice this long. The key design cues that may show up on future product Lexus include the mesh spindle grille and the lighting details. More and more manufacturers like Lexus are taking advantage of LEDs and other new lighting technologies that not only performs better, but also draws less power.
