Ahead of the 2012 Paris Motor Show later this month, Lexus unveiled its LF-CC Concept Car, the latest mid-sized coupe concept to join its D-Segment vehicles line. Like the LF-LC 2+2 sports coupe concept, which made its debut at the 2012 Detroit Motor Show, the LF-CC is a hybrid vehicle and features a new 2.5-liter hybrid powertrain. But the concept’s most distinctive aspect would be its design. Following Lexus’ new L-Finesse theme, a new design DNA that is making its way to all of Lexus’ silhouettes, the concept’s front end is define by the Lexus “spindle” grille, an aggressive fender form, and LED-projector headlamps. The curves follow along the vehicle’s side profile and highlights its rear wheel arch before dissipating into the trunk cover. Similar design philosophy on its interior as well, with Lexus’ concept of a Human Machine Interface setting the central theme. Dashboard is separated as two distinct focal points – a Display Zone for at-a-glance viewing and a Operation Zone for a touch tracer display to operate system controls. Furthermore, the interior is carved up into two parts, the cockpit where all of car’s controls are within the driver’s reach, and the spacious cabin portion for passengers.
