After days of teasing fans on Facebook with pictures of blacked out profiles against an eclipsed moon and close ups of the interior, the Lexus LF-C2 concept car was fully unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show Nov. 19, and in a press release issued the same day.
Highly stylized in a 2+2 layout and painted in a brilliant yellow gold color, this sports coupe convertible concept is ideal for the driver craving the rush of wind in your hair without leaving the lap of luxury. Steeply angled body lines lead to a delicately aggressive appearance, which Lexus describes as being the new direction for their production models’ appearances.
“The LF-C2 concept shows what’s in store for our brand’s future design direction,” said Vice President and General Manager of the Lexus Group Jeff Bracken in the release.
While keeping in mind the way various shapes appear differently in different lighting, the design team at Lexus pushed to make the LF-C2 unique from every angle. The front grille design has been retuned for this concept, and “features a refined braided mesh that… changes its appearance when viewed from different angles and lighting conditions,” according to the release. The paint job was designed to instill a similar effect, created through multiple layers of clear, silver and yellow coats.

The LF-C2 was truly designed to be a car that breaks down further the divide between driver and road, as the concept has neither a retractable nor a removable top. Instead, the yellow gold paint of the exterior is pulled into the main cabin, as the pillar separating driver and passenger appears to be an extension of the back of the car.
