Lexus unveiled new photos with the new LF-LC Concept that will make its debut next week at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show and we have to admit that the car looks impressive. This stunning concept is a 2+2 sports coupe concept designed to show firm’s directions. The Lexus LF-LC Concept was designed by firm’s Calty studio in Newport Beach, California and combines the high technology and organic shapes in order to connect the driver to the car.
Its clean lines emphasize motion and create a distinctive look. Inside sources say that this concept car was built in the spirit of the SC, the roadster that challenged the Mercedes-Benz SL. For the moment we don’t know if this car will ever be produced but if it does, we do believe that it will smash the well-known Mercedes-Benz SL.
Regarding the design, the LF-LC Concept continues the same design philosophy seen on the new 2013 Lexus GS, featuring a big front grille and stylish LED headlights. Under the hood we expect to see a hybrid powertrain, but we will reveal you more next week, from the 2012 Detroit Auto Show.
The profile of the Lexus LF-LC inspires confidence and is the portrait of a vehicle which exudes dynamism, strength and character.
This is a concept car with much to prove and the new glass roof is one such example. Taking its inspiration from modern architectural designs, it features a cantilevered glass-to-glass juncture which is lightweight, beautiful and helps to aid all round visibility when inside the vehicle due to the layout of the windows. Highlighted in aluminium, it adds a modern design chic.
A glance from the front to the rear reveals a deceptive width to the LF-LC with the integration of the front's grille theme on the rear. The taillamps have been designed with jets in mind and a close examination reveals a degree of depth through the use of inner lighting not unlike the afterburners of modern aviation.
Both the front and rear fog lamps are fit with a fading dot matrix pattern and the rear tail and fog lamps have been designed to draw the eye down to Lexus' quad exhaust.
Looking at the technology available in this concept car has outlined Lexus' design philosophy. They have aimed for driver comfort, security and a feeling like no other by combining appealing shapes with soft furnishings and state-of-the-art technological accomplishments.
The cockpit remains open but safe with high panels and an integrated secure console immediately available to allow the driver to remain focused on the road.
With a more enveloping, organic drive in mind, the Lexus LF-LC comes with an intuitive touch-screen which enables the driver to retain control without moving or shifting his vision.
Information and navigation are available on the two 12.3 inch LCD screens on the center console. These can be updated via the touch-screen control board and manage all the standard controls such as climate control and audio. A pop-up touch-screen keyboard is also available for convenience. Touch screen surfaces are also installed on the doors in order to manipulate the windows, mirrors, seats and any personal entertainment setting.
