Lexus Designers Explain LF-Lc Concept

Japanese luxury automaker Lexus finally revealed the LF-Lc sports coupe concept at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, one of the most interesting and exciting new cars ideas coming from them in a long time.
It’s got taillights designed to look like jet afterburners, a huge hourglass grille that looks like it wants to eat you and headlights that look like a retro video camera. Our favorite bit is the glass-to-glass window frame that hasn’t been done before to our knowledge.

“The LF-LC was a dream car to design and a true collaborative effort at Calty. It is an honour to have that work recognised by our peers and to receive the award,” Kevin Hunter, President of the Calty design center where the car was created, said.

“The LF-LC is a striking design and breathtaking in its beauty. 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,” added Mark Templin, Lexus US Group Vice President and General Manager.
