Lexus has yet another influential design concept up its sleeve: the LF-C. The sporty two-door coupé will be shown at this week’s New York show and neatly reflects the Japanese brand’s ‘new, more passionate design direction’.

Powered by a high-output V8, the concept’s design emphasis is as much on luxury as performance. And judging by the rapid translation of the LF-S Tokyo concept into the production GS, it could hint at a new look for the marque’s next SC sports coupé. Insiders admit the LF-C – which stands for Lexus Future Coupé – could prove equally prophetic, offering a faithful guide as to what the next- generation SC will look like. The current car is due for replacement in 2007.
