LF-LC 2+2 Hybrid Sport Coupe Concept To Debut In Detroit

There is some similarity of traits between moon and Toyota. Both reveal their true form step by step. Following the same market strategy, Toyota Lexus has now disclosed a full frontal photo of its next-in-line concept Lexus LF-LC 2+2 Hybrid Sport Coupe. The vehicle is slated to make its debut at the Detroit auto show.

The car is designed at Toyota's Calty Design studio in California. The design of this car is an attempt to give the brand a sportier look. From the images released by automaker, it appears that the design is heavy on styling and like models, expected to feature a comfortable interior. The technical specifications will be made known during the event itself. Toyota has not disclosed any information of the technologies that will accompany the Hybrid concept. But from the looks one can guess, the designers have tried to convert a usual Hybrid into a sports Hybrid.


Regarding engines, the Japanese automaker has entered into an agreement with the German car manufacturer BMW. Hence, a bit of German engineering is expected in the otherwise purely Japanese car. Although the deal was regarding commercial production, it will be worth waiting to see if any kind of foreign technology is incorporated in the concept vehicle.

Toyota is also showcasing its NS4 concept car and Prius C at the American event. While Prius C is touted to be global leader in its segment, it is already launched in Japan. Customers in Japan can buy it as Toyota Aqua. From what the company thinks about Hybrid Sport Coupe, the car is nothing less than a stunner.
