Lexus has a record of releasing visually intriguing concept cars that sport eye-grabbing designs, like the insane UX concept from last year and the futuristic LF-FC from the year before. Even its new Black Panther-inspired model is a sight to behold.

So, of course we’re excited by the news that Lexus will be debuting another concept vehicle soon. At the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, taking place January 12-28, Lexus will unveil its LF-1 Limitless crossover concept.

Why We’re Looking Forward to the LF-1 Limitless

Lexus’ LF line gets its name from the moniker “Lexus Future” and has been the family in which the brand has revealed over a dozen concept models over the years. The upcoming LF-1 Limitless breaks a trend, though; while previous models more a letter-based name, the LF-1 is the first that bears a number.

Thus far, Lexus has been secretive about the LF-1 Limitless, sharing only its name and a shadowy teaser image that reveals its continuous wraparound taillights and rounded body shape.

The crossover concept has been created by Calty Design Research, Toyota’s design studio that occasionally produces a Lexus concept model like (most recently) the 2004 LF-C concept and the 2003 LF-X concept. Considering it’s been over a decade since we’ve seen Catly produce a Lexus design, we’re curious to see what the studio has in store. Lexus is announcing the crossover as the front-runner of the brand’s next genre of luxury crossovers.

Look for the LF-1 Limitless in January, in addition to many other exciting offerings from your favorite automakers at the 2018 NAIAS.
