Easily one of the stars of this year’s Detroit Auto Show, and arguably the best looking, the Lexus LF-LC hybrid coupe concept is a bold look at the future styling direction of the brand, while also hinting at a new model.

With styling cues from the new GS and the LFA supercar, there’s plenty of innovation packed into it – though Lexus is being extremely quiet as to what the powertrain is, apart from commenting that it’s a next-generation hybrid drive system that will deliver both fuel economy and performance.

For more on the LF-LC, watch the video below.

    Gotta love the styling on this thing. Looks like something from the future. Seems like japanese manufacturers are starting to integrate hybrid technology into their sports cars. Look at the new nsx.. hybrid v6.. This LF-LC is apparently going to have a similar engine to the Lexus 450h which is a V6 hybrid.

    this is 100% hit! I love Lexus! I watched the video for over 10x! hahaha! This is a mean machine! Super Sport Exterior and Super Sport and Luxury Interior. Is this really going out? When? I hope not as priced as the LFA haha! If this is really going out, gotta trade my LX570 haha! or convince my dad to buy one without trading. haha! Congratulations Lexus! Keep Up!
