Lexus Previews LF-CC Concept For Paris

Lexus LF-CC Concept IS

Lexus has pulled off a surprise before this month's Paris Motor Show by showing off the LF-CC coupe concept.

The concept features the L-Finesse design language shown on the LF-LC concept. As the images show, the concept wears possibly the boldest implementation of the spindle grille. The overall body looks to share a lot in common with the LFA supercar. In a press release, Lexus says the concept is not just a look at the next generation IS, but also at a new coupe.

Inside, Lexus says the LF-LC concept is a preview of what to expect in the new IS. The driver sits low and gets a wide grip steering wheel and a set high-visibility instrument dials.

The center console layout is divided into two distinct pieces: an upper, Display Zone, with a multi-display screen, and a lower, Operation Zone, which has a new design for the gear-lever and a touch-pad controller.

Powering the concept is a parallel hybrid system pairing a direct-injected 2.5L four-cylinder gas engine with an electric motor. Like the exterior and interior, Lexus says expect this powertrain to make appearance in future models.
