Lexus LF-LC Wins Detroit Motor Show Design Award

LF LC Hybrid 1 at Lexus LF LC Wins Detroit Motor Show Design Award

The amazing Lexus LF-LC was announced as the winner of EyesOn Design Award for best concept car at 2012 Detroit Motor Show.

There could not be another winner, because the 2012 NAIAS was mostly about proper, production cars, and none of the few concept cars were even remotely as interesting as the big Lexus.

For the design team at Lexus’s Calty studio in California probably see this as compliment to their vision of future of Lexus design, but we have a sneaking suspicion the judges were just bewildered by the beauty of this concept car and didn’t really care about its philosophy.

Still, it’s good to know the LF-LC will inspire future Lexus models. Elements of the new Lexus design language introduced in the new GS 450h can be witnessed in the concept, notably the strong interpretation of the “spindle” grille shape and the rear architecture.

Kevin Hunter, Calty President, said: “The LF-LC was a dream car to design and a true collaborative effort at Calty. It is an honour to have that work recognised by our peers and to receive the award.

Mark Templin, Lexus US Group Vice President and General Manager, said: “The LF-LC is a striking design and breathtaking in its beauty. The team at Lexus quickly fell in love with this concept vehicle and it’s rewarding to see that the industry agreed. Receiving the EyesOn Design Award is a great start to what promises to be a fantastic year for Lexus.”
