DETROIT -- After releasing teaser photos leading up to the 2012 North American Auto Show, Lexus unveiled its highly anticipated LF-LC concept car to a bevy of onlookers Monday here in Detroit.

Lexus said in its press conference that the LF-LC emphasizes the future of the brand's design. The two-door, four-seat sports coupe is a hybrid, with a 2+2 concept. 

The concept we're showing here in Detroit continues the Lexus design revolution started with the CT and GS, said Mark Templin, Lexus group vice president and general manager. The concept hybrid 2+2 liberates the idea of a sport coupe and pushes the boundaries of performance, style and technology.

Some noteworthy features: The LF-LC has a glass roof and taillights that take inspiration from jet planes. Lexus said the concept will have up to 500 horsepower. 

Our entire studio worked to develop this beautiful interpretation of Lexus originality, said Kevin Hunter, president of Calty, which teamed up with Lexus for the design. The LF-LC concept embodies our vision of what a premium sport coupe could be.
