Geneva Motor Show: Lexus LF-LC and RX 450h

Having made its world debut at the Detroit Motor Show in January, the beautiful Lexus LF-LC makes its Euro debut in Geneva; Toyota was too busy making new show cars for itself to bother doing anything for Lexus, it seems.

Nonetheless, the LF-LC is a lovely thing, and is a showcase of future Lexus styling - in the tradition of many a lovely concept car.
Its glass roof is essentially a single piece canopy for the car, adjoining the front and rear screens and making the cabin extremely airy.

The four-seat coupé has a dashboard whose main controls and displays are largely digital, which is perhaps a glimpse of where Lexus design is going; the architecture borrows heavily from the LFA.

Lexus is said to be considering putting a watered-down version into production, giving the company a nice BMW 6 Series rival.

Meanwhile, the facelifted Lexus RX 450h SUV makes its debut, including the new F Sport trim you see in the picture above.

As usual with these things, the nose goes corporate, which means it's similar to that of the last new Lexus, the GS executive saloon, which in turn was inspired by the LFA supercar.

And, also as usual, there are now LED daytime running lights integrated into the headlamps. It goes on sale in the UK later this year.
