The Lexus LF-S concept car made its U.S. debut today
at the Greater Los Angeles Auto Show. First introduced at the 2003
Tokyo Motor Show, the LF-S is a next-generation sedan that expresses
the Lexus brand's new conception of luxury car design.
LF-series is much more than a parade of show cars," said Denny
Clements, Lexus group vice president and general manager. "It
represents a new design direction and new design language - one that
is bold and striking yet simple and intriguing."
the first time in North America, the Lexus LF-S concept is a
realization of a quest to define the essence of luxury in every
detail. The concept vehicle seeks to provide a peak experience that
fills the driver with exhilaration and provides comfort in every
moment, while understanding and anticipating each individual user's
constantly changing needs.
looking ahead, Lexus designers in concert with its engineers
produced what is truly a "design exercise in luxury," revealing a
preview of what lies ahead for future Lexus sedans. In designing the
LF-S, Lexus used long integrated lines to simplify the form and
shape of the vehicle. The wrap-around design, from the side of the
vehicle all the way to the rear, virtually eliminates the rear
corners of the vehicle and offers an example of how simplicity can
be very intriguing.
past year at major international auto shows, Lexus has offered hints
of this new direction in design with the LF-series of concept
vehicles. "LF" is shorthand for a design language Lexus calls
"L-Finesse." This design language has been artfully translated by
the all-new 2006 Lexus GS, which arrives in March and is the first
Lexus production vehicle to incorporate these new styling cues.
