The LF-FC concept features Lexus' L-finesse design language and Lexus says that from every angle, the sedan is "aggressively elegant." The LF-FC also gets an evolved version of the Lexus spindle grille that is flanked by floating L-shaped LED daytime running lights. As you move back the LF-LC's sleek roofline gives it a "4-door coupe" profile and its rear taillights adopt the same floating theme as the daytime running lights.

On the technology front, the LF-FC concept is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell system that powers the rear wheels, while two in-wheel motors power the front. Inside the LF-FC features an advanced human machine interface that can be operated by simple hand gestures, without the need to touch a panel or controls. A small holographic image on the center console indicates where the system can interpret your hand gestures to control the audio system and ventilation.

"Lexus wants to surprise and evoke emotion with its distinctive design and forward-thinking technology. For us, it is more than just a car, and we should exceed conventional imagination. The LF-FC expresses our progressive luxury and high-tech vision of a not so distant future," said Tokuo Fukuichi, Lexus International President.
