The LF-C provided a hint of the direction Lexus is considering
for the next generation IS sports car. The unique hardtop
design allows the car to transform itself at the touch
of a button from a coupe to a convertible, to a targa
or to a speedster, depending on the driver's mood.
"We used a combination of convex and concave surfaces
to control the balance of light and shadow on the car
which creates this beautiful contrast of having sharp
lines within the sculpted exterior surfaces," said
Kevin Hunter, vice president of Calty Design Research,
Inc. "The idea was to create a sense of strength
and softness at the same time, adding an air of mystery."
