At Lexus say that the new concept — “the next step in the development of premium crossovers”, and this flagship crossover “will push the boundaries of luxury.” Recall that for more than 20 years of top of the range Japanese sub-brand took the SUV LX. Now, it’s time for a change.
The prototype LF-1 Limitless created in collaboration with an American design Studio Toyota CALTY. The same one that developed the conceptual design of the sports car FT-1, based on which will be performed the appearance of a revived Supra.

According to the published teaser, the body is made in the new style cross-coupe with a glass roof and an unusual double spoiler on the tailgate. Seen as two monitors for second-row passengers, mounted on the backs of the front seats.
Other details will be known on 8 January 2018, when they will open the doors of the Detroit motor show. Previous conceptual crossover Lexus was the prototype of the UX created in the European design centre of the brand in France. The car received an electrochromic window with variable shading and so-called “kinetic” dental chair with the backs of eco-materials based on synthetic spider silk.
Together with the current crossover NX, RX and GX, compact UX and LF will expand the flagship SUV in the Lexus lineup to five items.
