Lexus previews LF-CC Concept ahead of Paris debut
Posted Sep 17th 2012 9:14AM
The Lexus LF-CC, a new two-door hybrid coupe concept, will make its debut at the Paris Motor Show later this month. Featuring the L-finesse design language seen on the LF-LC Concept that debuted in Detroit back in January, the LF-CC Concept is likely a preview of the next-generation Lexus IS that will be introduced in the near future.
While its still unclear how much of the styling will make it to a future production vehicle, particularly the bold iteration of the spindle grille, triple LED headlights and intricate taillights, the overall design of the LF-CC looks to be easily transferred over to a road-going Lexus.
Hybrid models have become commonplace throughout the Lexus lineup over the past few years, most recently with the ES, and now it appears the IS will be getting a fuel-sipping variation as well. Under the hood, the LF-CC features a new 2.5-litre hybrid powertrain, one that Lexus says will be used throughout its model lineup in the future, with various technologies to further reduce fuel consumption.
