Lexus announced that the LF-LC 2+2 Hybrid Sport Coupe that was unveiled last week at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show was named as the best concept car in the annual EyesOn Design Awards. The new concept car that promises to resurrect the SC badge and take on the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class was designed by company’s Calty design studio in Newport Beach, California.
Although it is just a pure design exercise, according to Lexus, we do expect to see a production version of this car as it is incredibly beautiful. Still, we expect to come sooner than the LFA which was finally produced after few years since its first debut as a concept car.
“The LF-LC was a dream car to design and a true collaborative effort at Calty,” said Kevin Hunter, president of Calty. “It is an honor to have that work recognized by our peers and to receive the EyesOn Design Award.”
“The LF-LC is a striking design and breathtaking in its beauty,” said Mark Templin, Lexus group vice president and general manager. “The team at Lexus quickly fell in love with this concept vehicle and it’s rewarding to see that the industry agreed. Receiving the EyesOn Design Award is a great start to what promises to be a fantastic year for Lexus.”
