Article by Christian A., on March 3, 2012

The Lexus LF-LC is set to make its appearance at the Geneva Motor Show this month, the first time it will be showcased outside North America. The vehicle is proving the hottest concept of this year's automobile show season, following up with its Detroit design award with a renowned peoples' prize win during the Chicago Auto Show.

The hybrid 2+2 is a representation of the Lexus's vision of a luxury sports coupe in the future. It is created by its design team at its Calty studio in California and showcases the new Lexus styling language in its version of the signature Lexus rear architecture and spindle grille.

Curves blend smoothly across the bodywork into dynamic angles, producing an engaging interaction of corners, lines and shadows. LF-LC's contour highlights motion and direction, making the vehicle an undeniably one for a serious driver.

When the LF-LC was launched at the North American International Auto Show, it achieved the EyesOn award from a jury comprising the leading designers. It has also won the "best concept in show" award at Chicago with an emphatic vote of around 30%. Votes were made by the thousands of attendees to the 10-day show.

Speaking before the show to the Chicago business community, Toyota Motor North America's President and COO Yoshi Inaba emphasized the LF-LC. He stated that the vehicle was just a concept at that time, but judging from the "fantastic reception" that it garnered at the Detroit auto show in January, people want the automaker to build the vehicle.
