LEXUS HYBRID COUPE: Go-ahead likely for the concept.

Relevant offers

Toyota has given the green light to bringing the dramatic Lexus LF-LC 2+2 Hybrid Sport Coupe concept to production.

Designed by the company's Calty design studio in Newport Beach, California, the LF-LC coupe was named the best concept car in the annual Eyes On Design Awards at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit last January.

And even though the LF-LC coupe was labelled ''a pure design exercise'' by Toyota and Lexus at the show, it appears the car is going ahead.
