Lexus shows face of Detroit coupe concept
First featured on CarandVanNews last month, the car is strongly predicted to go into production by 2015, despite Lexus claiming it is merely a design exercise.
The car follows the latest Lexus L-Finesse design language, with elements of the LF-Gh concept seen at the New York motor show, and the Lexus LFA supercar, visible in the styling.
A production car would be pitched as a rival to the Mercedes SL and would include a hybrid powertrain.
The 2+2 concept has been created at the Lexus Calty design studio in Newport Beach, California.
It is described by Lexus group vice president and general manager Mark Templin as being; “crafted from a clean sheet of paper at the request of Lexus headquarters in Japan.”
