Lexus LF-LC Concept

I work a lot of different jobs.  Because of this I sometimes misplace pics and articles that I want to share with you guys.  This is one of those occasions.  I've had these photos since January...  No excuses, but please enjoy them.

Lexus is really trying to show that they are not some boring luxury car brand.  They've already dazzled us with the LFA.

This year they debuted the LF-LC concept car.  While I was in Detroit for the North American International Auto Show, I ran into a pretty impressive sight.  Lexus had finished their press conference to introduce the LF-LC concept and was moving it out to the main floor.  I was only up close with the concept for two minutes top so most of the pictures are blurry, but the LF-LC looks great.  Unlike the concepts that Chevy brought to the auto show, the LF-LC is a functional vehicle and under it's own power.  The car was surrounded by a dozen people each helping the driver know how much room he had to navigate the tight confines.
It's blurry because I'm a bad camera operator, not because it was moving that fast.
The headlamps resemble weapons on a space ship and the car itself could have been sneaked into any of the Star Wars prequels.  The car probably would have made the movies better... 

It says hybrid in tiny chrome letters on the quarter panel.
Sir Mix-a-lot might be tempted to write a sequel to "Baby Got Back."
You can see the flaming exhaust brake lights!
The tail lights were designed to look like jet fighter exhaust.  I love the look of this concept and hope it sees production.  Acura and Honda should be worried.  The NSX looks great, but if Lexus builds this car, Honda could have some real competition.

My apologies again for the tardiness of this post.
