As part of their sponsorship of the Australian International Design Awards, Lexus Australia has released a stunning collection of photos featuring the LF-CC concept and the new IS F SPORT together:
The similarities between the two cars are dramatic, despite the difference in doors — even still, the Lexus Australia press release provides an interesting perspective:
Although concept in design, the LF-CC provides much of the inspiration for the forthcoming, all-new IS Line and provides a hint of a future two-door mid-size coupe scheduled for production.
Lexus Australia chief executive Sean Hanley said that the LF-CC brings with it renewed focus on design and driving dynamics.
“The LF-CC signals a new Lexus, one buoyed by confidence and a desire to deliver vehicles that are visually and dynamically appealing,” Mr Hanley said.
“LF-CC is more than a concept, it is a promise from Lexus to deliver an engaging and exciting two-door coupe – in fact, its impact is already evident in the forthcoming IS Line.
“The beauty of LF-CC is more than skin deep, with its innovative petrol-electric drivetrain and on-board features, the LF-CC and in fact the LF-LC coupe concept are graphic demonstrations of what’s to come from Lexus,” Mr Hanley said.
As a bonus, there’s also a video from the photoshoot:
