Unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show, the Lexus LF-1 is a California designed concept car penned by the Lexus/Toyota CALTY Design Research team.
This new vision of flagship vehicle fully embraces its crossover shape without sacrificing luxury and performance. Its imaginative technology is used to create a strong emotional connection with the driver and passengers. Designed with a clear futuristic inspiration, the body is a beautifully sculpted shape with smooth lines and curves. A low laying glassroof gives it the ultimate coupe-SUV look yet it still offers considerable headspace. The rear is covered by an elegant stoplight above the muscular rear bumper.
Inside, there are nearly no knobs to interact with, instead you control everything via gestures. All of the seats are identical and come in a typical luxurious bucket seat design. Instead of traditional mirrors, two small screens broadcast a video feed from the cameras of the car. Lexus has also created a "Chauffeur" driving mode which is an amped up adaptive cruise control. The center console offers a concierge service that allows passengers to make restaurant reservations, book hotels and much more.
Lexus is using this concept to show its teeth, to clearly state that its design is more than just a few razor sharp headlights.
