Lexus announced Monday that it will introduce a new concept vehicle next month at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The company did not release any specifics of the vehicle, and when reached by phone, a company spokesman said only that the concept car was a design study.

Lexus said in a press release that the vehicle will showcase the new design direction embraced by Lexus. The vehicle design was conceived by Newport Beach, Calif.-based Calty Design Research Inc. Calty has been involved with the design concepts of the Lexus FLV, LF-X and, most recently, the LF-C.

The North American International Auto Show will take place starting Jan. 9 in Detroit.
