At the ongoing 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, Lexus is introducing the American crowd to its whole range, but there are three cars that are collectig the most attention at their stall: the Lexus LF-A Nurburgring Edition, the Lexus LF-CC Concept and the Lexus LF-LC. The Lexus LF-A Nurburgring Edition is powered by an upgraded version of the same 4.8-liter V10 equipping the Lexus LF-A, and uses refined aerodynamics and chassis. As the name suggests, this model has been developed on the mighty Nordschleife long track of the Nürburgring.
Firstly introduced at the recent Paris Motor Show, the Lexus LF-CC is a concept that anticipates some lines that will adopted by the next generation of the Lexus IS, offering innovative technical solutions as well as a pretty futuristic design that can certainly be conveyed to a modern day production car. This concept of a mid-sized coupe is powered by a four-cylinder gasoline engine assisted by an electric motor mated to a high-performance battery pack, a solution that may be proposed in the future for the next Lexus IS.
The Lexus LF-LC instead is the prototype of a dynamic and aggressive sportscar, as emphasized by its gritty design. This model debuted at the latest Geneva Motor Show and is equipped with futuristic and uncompromising technical solutions. Take the LCD screens integrated into the doors for instance, which can be used to control the windows, air-conditioning and infotainment system.
