If you think Lexus’ spindle grille corporate face is extreme, you will want to pay close attention to the concept it just debuted in L.A.
The company just officially unveiled its LF-C2 concept in Southern California, saying it serves as a preview of design cues to come on future Lexus products. It uses a 2+2 seat layout and has absolutely no roof covering, although that probably doesn’t matter because this is only a design concept.
Powertrain details are completely undisclosed, but the concept does serve as an indicator if not an outright confirmation that Lexus is eyeing a new convertible grand touring car to fill a slot that is currently only being filled by the outdated IS C.
Lexus is still keeping specific plans for a production car in the dark, but the LF-C2 looks like little more than a thinly-veiled preview of an open top version of the new RC sport coupe. The concept is 185.6 inches long or only a whisper greater than the production RC 350 and is exactly the same width as that car at 72.4 inches.
There's going to be something different about the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this year that might be worth planning a trip around. This year, the show's organizers will give people in Sin City a chance to see the show in person regardless of whether or not they are directly affiliated with the automobile industry. SEMA is one of the largest trade shows the city hosts every year, but normally admission is reserved for people who are there on "official" business. Typically, that means its a mostly off-limits mecca for modified car enthusiasts, but that won't be true this year because on Friday, November 7, much of the show will be publicly on display for "SEMA Ignited." From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., cars from the show will pour out of the Las Vegas Convention Center onto the Strip. The show's organizers said they decided to add the event because there have been so many enthusiasts crowding around the exit at the end of

And there's a LOT of amazing hardware to see, from the Ferrari 458 Spider A, to a wild new Lamborghini Hybrid. The performance car action doesn't stop there either with the world premiere of the Mercedes AMG GT set to take place, along with a new 500+ horsepower C63 AMG.
Additional German performance comes from the new Audi TT, while rumors suggest a TT sedan will also be unveiled.
A long list of other cars includes the Range Rover Sport, Jaguar XE, Honda Civic Type R, Fiat 500X, Kia Sorento, VW Golf Alltrack and the Toyota C-HR – a sort of Prius crossover.
And one really big surprise is a 550-hp Infiniti Q80 hybrid concept.
Now that the Lexus RC F is heading to dealerships, the Japanese automaker is working on a high-performance version of its GS luxury sedan.
The stylish RC F coupe was built to compete against the BMW M4 and the next addition to the Japanese automaker’s F lineup will be the GS F sedan, which will target the BMW M5 and Mercedes-AMG C63. The GS F takes styling cues from the RC F with a more pronounced front end, sportier wheels and larger brakes.
In the rear, expect a quad-tip exhaust setup and a subtle lip spoiler on the trunk while power will likely come from the same powerplant as the RC F, a 5.0-liter V8 with around 500 to 550 hp.
