Paris Motor Show LIVE: Lexus LF-CC breaks cover image

Toyota’s luxury brand Lexus has brought the all-new LF-CC concept car to the 2012 Paris Motor Show, which is offering a first look into the 2014 IS.

The Japanese based automaker has unveiled the Lexus LF-CC Concept a few weeks ago so its design isn’t a surprise for anyone who’s watching the automotive news constantly, but even so, the model has been well received by the public at the Paris Motor Show and it managed to attract quite a crowd. According to the car manufacturer, the Lexus LF-CC Concept will inspire the 2014 IS and its front grille, wheel arches, rear bumper and more are expected to be borrowed by the model.

Power to the Lexus LF-CC Concept is being provided by the new 2.5 liter four-cylinder gasoline engine, which is “helped” on the way by an electric motor and a high-performance battery. A generator and a power split device can relocate the power provided by either the gasoline unit, the electric motor and the generator and thanks to these innovations Lexus is saying that the LF-CC is emitting less than 100 g/km of CO2. Additional details on the LF-CC are limited for the moment.
