Toyota’s luxury brand Lexus has brought the LF-LC Opal Blue concept and the LF-CC concept to the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The Lexus LF-LC Opal Blue Concept has been officially unveiled last month during the 2012 Australian International Auto Show in Sydney and the model is getting a new color and a new upholstery, which has been inspired by the blue opal found in the Australian Outback. The Lexus LF-LC Opal Blue Concept is powered by a 5.0 liter V8 engine, backed up by two electric motors and a Ni-MH battery pack, producing a total output of 438 HP (444 PS / 327 kW), enough to allow the model to sprint from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 208 km/h.
Besides the Lexus LF-LC Opal Blue Concept, the Japanese based automaker has also brought the LF-CC Concept to the same 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show. The model will inspire the 2014 IS and the rear bumper, front grille, wheel arches and more are expected to be borrowed by the model. The Lexus LF-CC Concept is powered by a 2.5 liter gasoline engine, helped by an electric motor and a high-performance battery. A generator and a power split device can relocate the power between the gasoline unit, the electric motor and the generator and thanks to these innovations, the model can emit less than 100 g/km of CO2.
