Toyota’s luxury marque has announced that the Lexus LF-C2 concept car will be one of its headline acts at the Los Angeles auto show later this month.

Lexus isn’t saying much about the concept car at the moment, but given the outline of the vehicle in the teaser image above and the name of the vehicle, the LF-C2 will likely be a preview of a production RC convertible, albeit one dressed up with lashings of motor show concept car bravado.

The company will slowly uncover the car over a period of 72 hours prior to its in-the-flesh unveiling at the auto show. According to Lexus, the concept car “will be gradually revealed hour by hour through the intensifying glow of a solar eclipse”. The gradual unveiling takes place on the Lexus International website and starts from 8.40am (AEDT) on November 17.

Lexus LF-CC concept profile

The earlier Lexus LF-CC concept car (above), first revealed in 2012, pointed the way to the look of the RC coupe and, by extension, the related IS sedan.

Other Lexus LF concept cars have morphed into production models in recent years. These include the LF-NX, which recently became the RAV4-based NX SUV, the LF-Gh that begat the fourth-generation GS sedan, and the LF-Ch, which previewed the hybrid CT200h hatch.
