VIDEO. Lexus LF-C2 Concept breaks cover

Lexus has unveiled its new LF-C2 2+2 roadster design study at the Los Angeles Motor Show, a model that ‘captures key themes’ for future model designs down the line.

Derived from a simple sports coupe idea – albeit with a 2+2 seating arrangement – rather unusually the new LF-C2 has no roof or cabin covering of any kind, a means of creating the ‘best top-down driving experience’ possible.

Key aesthetic designs on the exterior for the luxury roadster concept include Lexus’ traditional hexagonal singleframe grille, slick-cut triangular LED headlights and sharpened bodylines, a look completed by a golden yellow paint finish. The grille in particular is worthy of note, the mesh look designed to look slightly different under variable lighting and at different angles (though that’s difficult to tell with the above images). L-shaped taillights, chrome-tipped quad exhaust pipes and a pronounced new rear diffuser complete the design at the back, while the concept is fitted with five-spoke 20-inch alloys.

Performance and engine options remain a mystery at present, though it’s suggested the LF-C2 may house the same 5.0-litre V8 as found in its sister RC model, recently launched in the UAE.
