EyesOn Design Award for LF-LC


At the conclusion of the Detroit Motor Show, otherwise known as the North American International Auto Show, the Lexus LF-LC concept car was honored with the annual EyesOn Design Award for Best Concept Car.

Lexus's Calty design studio in California was responsible for the LF-LC, their aim being to explore how a future redefinition of Lexus design might take a more emotive and avant garde approach, as well as harness new and advanced technologies. Elements of the new Lexus design language introduced in the new GS 450h can be witnessed in the concept, notably the strong interpretation of the “spindle” grille shape and the rear architecture.

“The LF-LC was a dream car to design and a true collaborative effort at Calty. It is an honour to have that work recognized by our peers and to receive the award,” said Mr. Kevin Hunter, Calty President.

The EyesOn Design Awards are judged by a group of world leading automotive designers and design academics, and are given in recognition of skills and creativity in different areas of design for both concept and production vehicles, including Aesthetics and Innovation, Concept Implementation, Functionality and the Spirit of Industrial Design.
