LF-C2. Open Air Luxury GT Concept.

The LF-C2 concept, revealed at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, is a design study in the form of a 2+2 roadster and explores key styling themes involved in the Lexus brand's future, bolder styling direction. The LF-C2 is also a luxury Grand Touring concept inspired by the brand's passion for driving.

The LF-C2 concept involves a highly styled 2+2 layout, and is derived from a pure and simple sports coupe idea. As a roadster concept, the LF-C2 concept does not have any kind of top covering the cabin.

The exterior styling of the LF-C2 was influenced by the way various surface shapes interact with different types of light. Designers created edges, planes and curvature that would allow the LF-C2 to exude a different character when seen from different angles and under different lighting conditions. This objective when combined with Lexus' layered paint process results in a striking and progressive interpretation of an open top luxury GT.

Step inside, and the LF-C2 treats its occupants to a luxurious and spacious cabin that flawlessly matches the sporty elegance of the exterior. The exterior extends into the cabin as the center console originates from the rear deck and runs down the length of the cabin all the way to the dashboard.
