Back in 1973, Toyota became the first foreign automaker to open a design studio in California. The design studio is known as CALTY. This is where a select group of Toyota and Lexus designers are allowed to set their imaginations loose as they create some incredible cars and concepts. The results of their hard work and dedication have helped build this stunning Lexus LF-LC concept car, being shown for the first time on Canadian soil at the Toronto Auto Show.
This Lexus couldn't be much further from the mothership in Japan, but its birthplace was Newport Beach and it looks rather at home taking center stage on the show floor.
