Lexus LF-LC sports coupe concept


The Lexus LF-LC hybrid 2+2 sports coupe concept has been unveiled at the Detroit Show.

The front-engine, rear-wheel drive LF-LC features Advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive, designed to deliver both driving performance and fuel efficiency.

The LF-LC displays the new Lexus design language including the new Lexus spindle grille.

The LF-LC features a remote touch-screen system that allows the driver to operate controls without shifting position or altering line-of-sight.

Twin 12.3-inch LCD screens provide information and navigation displays. A touch-screen in the centre console is used to control the audio system, climate controls and navigation, with a pop-up touch-screen keyboard for more complex commands. Similar touch-screen surfaces on each door are used to operate the windows, mirrors, seat positions and personal entertainment settings.

Multi-level meters set directly in front of the driver layer analogue and LCD technologies. The bottom layer displays temperature, fuel and the background for the Eco meter; the middle layer is the tachometer’s mechanical ring; and the topmost layer provides indicators for the tachometer, speedometer and Eco meter.
