This is Lexus’ rumored concept car for the 2012 Paris Motor Show. It’s called the LF-CC, and it s preview of the new IS sedan, as well as a premium coupe which Lexus says is coming in near future. What we have here is a D-segment car designed based on an evolution of the  L-finesse design language which takes the spindle grille to the next level.

It can be considered as a more production-ready version of the LF-LC concept seen earlier this year. The LF-CC Concept is fitted with a 2.5 liter full hybrid powertrain engine which is soon to be introduced to the Lexus range, offering class-leading CO2 emissions. This fact is enough for us to realize it’s not going to be a sports coupe, but rather a luxury GT car.

Naturally, the LF-CC features the spindle grille which is Lexus design’s signature dish. But the grille has become very bold in this new version. It features a deep, metal-finish surround and takes on a pronounced 3D form, framed by the lip of the bonnet, the deep lower spoiler and the projecting tips of the front wings. We think it looks a bit ostentatious.

The LF-CC is of course a rear-wheel drive car, a fact that according to Lexus is shown by the way the convex curve of the bonnet flows seamlessly through a steeply raked windscreen into a roofline that peaks towards the rear of the cabin. It’s a good job then the CC is not a four-wheel-drive-car, or the designers would be screwed! The car has a very nice side profile and the design of the wheels are also very elegant.

The rear-end design of the car seems basically production-ready, as there’s nothing too fancy about it. The car features a not particularly interesting Fluid Titanium paint job.

The interior is yet to be revealed, but Lexus says it’s wrapped in amber-colored leather, has multi-display feature, and all the drive function controls are located immediately around the driver’s seat.
