Lexus LF-LC

Fresh images of the Lexus' latest concept, the LF-LC 2+2 sports coupé, have dropped.

The car will be officially unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show next week and is designed to show off where Lexus' design direction will be headed over future generations.

Looking at the press release, you'll see this fine nugget: "Lexus has crafted the LF-LC from a clean sheet of paper" – we'd hope so. Still, it's supposed to combine clever tech with 'organic shapes' to highlight the connection between the driver and the car while still looking futuristic.

We still know very little about it – we've no idea what powers it or even how big it is. That said, there's speculation that it's a hint to a new take on the Lexus LS luxobarge. Some are even suggesting that this may make production itself as a competitor to the Mercedes CL class. Now that would be something.
