Lexus LF-LC Concept at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show
- Looks like: A worthy desktop photo for any computer
- Defining characteristics: Glass roof, hybrid powertrain, four seats
- Ridiculous features: Puckered metal-mouth grille
- Chance of being mass-produced: Some design aspects could see production
The Lexus LF-LC Concept peeks into the future of Lexus design, which looks like a sporty, exotic future if any elements of the LF-LC make it to production.
The LF-LC's profile has an exotic flair similar to the Lexus LFA supercar with deep side scoops and a sleek roofline. It was designed as a driver's car and looks the part from every angle with a wide stance, low roof, short rear and long nose. Lexus' new design language is exemplified in the LF-LC with its massive mesh grille surrounded by aluminum. It's a grille used with less exuberance on the production Lexus GS, CT 200h and recently refreshed LX 570.
The concept features a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive configuration paired with an Advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive system. For now, however, that's all the powertrain info available. That's not stopping us from changing our desktop wallpaper, though.
