Lexus LF-CC concept
The new Lexus LF-CC concept is a preview of a mid-size coupe arriving in the near future – revealed today ahead of its Paris Motor Show unveiling.
The LF-CC also gives design cues for other future Lexus models, with its spindle grille being one the biggest standout features. Another unique design feature is the use of three-piece LED projector headlamp units, rather than a more traditional one-piece covered unit. Lexus also say that the shape of the front wings channels air into the engine bay and brakes.
Powering the LF-CC concept is a 2.5-litre hybrid system. The engine is a four-cylinder DOHC unit, which Lexus say gives the vehicle a power-to-weight ratio of 2bhp/tonne. Other powertrain features include a generator, a high-performance battery, a power split device, compact power control unit, as well as D-4S direct injection system. The engine is to be put in production models in the near future.
