Lexus Unveil LF-1 Limitless Concept

The LF‑1 Limitless Concept is Lexus' vision of a ultra luxury SUV

It's the LF-1 Limitless concept, a big styling and size step-up on the RX - star of the Detroit show 20 years ago - and a auto with clear pretensions to step into the shoes of the LS saloon as a future Lexus flagship. The proportions give an aggressive look that emphasizes a rear-wheel-drive platform. The RX has been a hot seller for Lexus, but its larger offerings (the GX and LX) haven't caught on with the same amount of popularity.

Lexus has made a decision to grace the North American International Auto Show with something that will touch the heart of many Americans - an imposing, ultra-luxurious new concept of a crossover.

Look for the LF-1 Limitless to inspire Lexus's future crossover designs soon.

As we've seen in Lexus cars of today, the LF-1 Concept gets a bold exterior and was actually styled in collaboration with CALTY Design Research in California - the same people involved in the FT-1 project previewing the new Supra. We note that there do appear to be pedals in the LF-1 Limitless Concept photos released with its announcement. No certain powertrain has been advanced, instead Lexus saying it could adopt limitless possibilities - ICE, hybrid, PHEV, EV or FCEV. The 4D navigation system can be controlled through touch-sensitive, haptic controls near the steering wheel.

In true Lexus fashion, the interior of the LF-1 emphasizes on comfort, craftsmanship and high-tech functions. Considering that the third generation of the LX has been around for more than a decade now and we recently saw it make its way to the Indian market, the revamp of the vehicle is a much needed one and the LF-1 Limitless Concept is a good start.

To keep the driver focused on the road, Lexus opted to remove nearly all analog buttons and knobs in favor motion-activated controls.

Inside, the LF-1 conceptualizes an entirely new approach for the Lexus design team. That's inherent to most Lexus designs, as is the huge intake grille up front, with its hourglass shape and the sharp-edged lighting, which points towards the middle of the hourglass-like arrowheads.
