Lexus LF-CC concept debuts at the Paris Motor Show

The Lexus LF-CC coupé concept wowed the crowds at the Paris Motor Show when it was unveiled this morning.

As we revealed earlier this month, LF-CC follows on from the Lexus LF-LC concept, which debuted at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2012.

Unveiling the car, Paul Van der Burgh, Director of Lexus Europe, said: “The LF-CC shows a further evolution of our Lexus design language in a realistic yet innovative way.

“The design direction inspired by LF-CC will be applied to future Lexus vehicles and you won’t have to wait very long before seeing the first production vehicle.”

It is powered by a full hybrid powertrain, comprising a brand-new 4 cylinder, 2.5 litre petrol engine with D4-S injection technology to combine performance and class-leading energy efficiency. With more than 2hp produced per gram of CO2, LF-CC promises CO2 emissions below 100g/km – lower than any petrol or diesel engine of comparable output.

Mr Van der Burgh said that this new engine will be introduced to the Lexus line-up very soon.

 

He also revealed that Lexus is working on a rear-wheel drive mid-size coupe, which will be launched ‘in the near future’.
