Lexus LF-LC concept to make Canadian debut in Toronto

Feb. 12, 2014

The Lexus LF-LC concept, introduced at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, will finally make its Canadian debut this week at the Toronto Auto Show.

As you may or may not know, this 2+2 coupe embodies the Japanese brand's future design direction. It features the boldest interpretation of the Lexus spindle grille, an industry-exclusive glass-to-glass roof panel, and taillights that are reminiscent of fighter jet afterburners.

Motivation for the front-engine, rear-wheel drive LF-LC comes from the most advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive system yet, generating the equivalent of 445 horsepower -- unmatched by any other Lexus.

The body marries carbon fibre and aluminum alloy to achieve an extremely lightweight package. Inside, dual 12.3'' LCD screens (one for navigation and one for the gauge cluster) communicate with each other to provide everything the driver needs to know.
