Lexus LF-LC named Detroit’s best

2012 Detroit Motor Show

The Lexus LF-LC concept has been given the gong for Design Excellence (Concept Category) by the EyesOn Design judges at the Detroit Motor Show.

The judging panel consists of retired and active design-related members from both automotive and academic fields. The most recent winners of the Concept Category include the Porsche 918 RSR, GMC Granite and Audi Sportback Concept.

Speaking on behalf of Lexus, US Group Vice President and General Manager, Mark Templin said, “The LF-LC is a striking design and breathtaking in its beauty. The team at Lexus quickly fell in love with this concept vehicle and it’s rewarding to see that the industry agreed. Receiving the EyesOn Design Award is a great start to what promises to be a fantastic year for Lexus.”

Designed in Calfornia at the Lexus Calty studio, President Kevin Hunter said, “The LF-LC was a dream car to design and a true collaborative effort at Calty. It is an honour to have that work recognised by our peers and to receive the award.”

In the production category, the Design Excellence award went to the Ford Fusion.
