With the LF-1 Limitless Concept, Lexus aims to introduce a new genre of luxury car: the flagship crossover.
Power and performance
For starters, Lexus (née Toyota) says the LF-1 concept can be fuel cell, hybrid, plug-in hybrid, petrol, or all-electric.
The LF-1 concept was created at CALTY Design Research in California, which is an interesting turning point.
Lexus says the LF-1 has an exaggerated relationship to the bridge (which is a new phrase to me), it's more of a sports car than a station wagon.
Unfortunately, like all current Lexus models, the spindle grille is visible on the LF-1.

The cabin has been designed in such a way that each passenger receives maximum comfort.
The front passenger area is more open, with fewer controls and a wide, unobstructed view of the dashboard.
The interior is finished in a metallic finish with the same champagne painted color as the exterior, but with a satin finish for a warmer feel.
Lexus says all powerplant controls are on the steering wheel to keep the driver attractive and alert to the road.
The Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept is on display at the North American International Auto Show at the Cobo Center, downtown Detroit, Michigan.
