The sharp new coupe is said to preview a spiritual successor to the Lexus SC, which was produced between 1991 to 2010.

As for the specifications of the concept, Lexus is keeping all under wraps until its big unveiling. As indicated by a badge on the side however, it will feature a hybrid powertrain. It will likely offer sports car levels of performance matched with eco-friendly consumption and emissions figures.

The interior is appointed with futuristic leather seats in a 2+2 arrangement, and the cabin is concealed by a very low profile panoramic glass roof. The interior also features metallic and wood trims to give it a classy yet modern theme.

The body takes Lexus's current design language and extends and exaggerates it to levels that could only be seen on a futuristic concept car. The front is sharp and pointed, like the Lexus LFA, and the nose showcases a dramatic and large chrome mesh grille and angled headlights.

The rear of the LF-LC concept is yet to be revealed, but if the front is anything to go by it will exhibit similar contours and angles, and elements that appear to have been shaped by a sword.

All will be revealed at the 2012 North American International Auto Show on January 9. Look forward to our full coverage.
