Lexus LF-LC Concept: Design details

Wednesday, 11 January 2012

The Lexus LF-LC Concept has scooped the EyesOn Design best concept car award at the Detroit Auto Show 2012, and it’s fair to say it's been one of the most popular concepts unveiled so far. This is, according to its design team, the next step for the L-Finesse design language.

Where previous Lexus concepts and production cars have sometimes fallen short, the LF-LC is well resolved, beautifully surfaced and with contemporary details and graphics. Lexus has refined the grille so it’s quite distinct and the combined lamp and DRL signature is original. Most notable is how, particularly in the interior, the design is cohesive: there’s an almost French flair on show as well as an opulent, rich material palette.
