“The LF-C2 concept shows what’s in store for our brand’s future design direction,” Lexus group vice president and general manager Jeff Bracken said in a press release. “This concept shows consumers around the world Lexus’ devotion to emotional design as well as our passion for an exceptional driving experience.”
Lexus says the exterior styling was inspired by the way light interacts with different surface shapes. As a photographer with a passion for photographing cars this idea is very interesting to me. The way light can transform what they see and the way they perceive it is an interesting idea and one that is suited well to the motoring world.
The golden yellow paint is a perfect compliment to the design and beautifully illustrates Lexus’ idea, but credit for the interesting look of the car also needs to go to the photographer for their lighting of the car as well the angles the photos were taken from. As far as the interior it doesn’t do it for me. Too futuristic, seems like it will looked dated in the near future.
As far as a preview for what’s to come form Lexus it’s definitely a direction that would be interesting for them to go down. I would love to see what a second generation RC-F would look like with some of this new design language coming through it.
