2014_LA_Auto_Show_Lexus_LF_C2_Concept_2 At the ongoing LA Auto Show, Lexus showcased the much-anticipated LF-C2 Concept 2+2 Roadster for the very first time. The Lexus LF-C2 concept is a design study in the form of a 2+2 roadster and explores key styling themes involved in the Lexus brand’s future.

Exemplifying the exterior motif of the Concept is the experimental signature spindle grille with chrome-accented mesh on the front fascia. The grille sits between triangle-shaped LED headlights, a signature element of Lexus sports cars, and stylish indicator lights that initiate the character line of the LF-C2. Vents in the front bumper send cool air to the brakes as well as help manage airflow through the body to help keep the front end stable at high speed.

LF-C2 Concept represents the design language of the future Lexus Roadster

An arrow-shaped body with bold character lines ends at the sexy, slim rear end. The LF-C2’s profile shows a swooping line from the car’s front bumper fin to the steeply-angled A-pillar. Small vents in the side sills direct air to the rear brakes and out the fin-like rear diffusers. The rear end of the LF-C2 is highlighted by Lexus L-shaped taillight bulbs, an exhaust system with chrome-covered quad exhaust tips, and an expressive new rear diffuser design. The concept’s impactful stance is planted by five-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels, however this is still just a conceptual roadster. As a roadster concept, the LF-C2 does not have any kind of top covering the cabin. In dimensions, the concept is 4,715 mm long, 1,840 mm wide and 1,385 mm high.

Moving to the inside, the Concept’s 2+2 layout treats its occupants to a luxurious and well-decked cabin. 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.

The dashboard design is presents functional simplicity with an attractive-yet-straightforward instrument cluster, a central video monitor controlled by a Remote Touchpad and a classically-styled analog clock. The thick leather-wrapped steering wheel implies that this is a driver’s car, as do the form-fitting seats.
