2012 Lexus LF-LC Concept

The 2012 Lexus LF-LC Concept, a rear-wheel drive, front engine 2+2 hybrid sport coupe, was debuted at the 2012 North American International Auto Show with an eye toward indicating the direction of Lexus for the future.
The overall design concept embodied in the vehicle has its focus on the driver, but with a premium placed on elegance and beauty, futuristic technology, and evocative power.



Exterior Design
Starting with the front, designers employed a functional yet distinctive grille using Lexus elements. Using surround aluminum frames, the meshed spindle grille, allows the air intakes nestled in the lower corners give the face of the vehicle a functional air. "L"- shaped running light for daytime use and vertically-oriented fog lamps complete a unique but still-identifiable front-facing presentation.
The sleek glass roof and supports, suggests an open, greenhouse-style design and lends an airy quality to its sumptuous interior. The driver focus is evident here with increased visibility all around the concept car.
In the rear, design elements from the front have been carried over and augmented with inner-lit taillights and fog lamps with the same shape and patterning as the front lamps. The stunning design draws the viewer from the rear of the car to the signature quad exhaust pipe.

Interior & More
On the inside, the Lexus feels both open and secure, with a dual emphasis on high-technology and soft and organic forms and textures. Everything in the interior including the high-sitting console and the enveloping door panels seems to hug the driver and invite a focal point of the road ahead.
The instrument panel includes a touch-screen remote and 2 LCD screens. Using this interface the driver can control navigation tools, the sound system, and heating and cooling. On each door a touch screen allows side control of the seats, windows and mirrors. The front instrumentation is completed by layered displays that suggest a combination of retro analog style and futuristic digital elements.
With leather and metal, suede and wood carefully and artistically employed for finishing and trimming the seats and surfaces, the interior of the 2012 Lexus LF-LC Concept is elegant and advanced, comfortable and sleek, and all Lexus.

2013 BMW 650i Gran Coupe

The BMW 6 Series is a popular coupe that combines high level luxury with amazing performance. Available in coupe and convertible, a new member of its stable has arrived. And it is unlike practically everything else on the road today. This car is the 2013 BMW 650i Gran Coupe.




Interior & Exterior
The Gran Coupe is a sporty 4 door coupe reminiscent of the car that it would possibly rival on the market: the Mercedes Benz CLS. It resembles the typical 6 Series Coupe, but it possesses a wheelbase that is 4.4 inches longer compared to the coupe in order to accommodate better seating.
Perhaps due to the extended wheelbase, the Gran Coupe is a 5 seater compared to the Coupe and Convertible that is a 4 seater. Not only that, this car features some of the innovative technologies that are a staple for BMW vehicles. This includes a new LED lighting system, night vision, and the ConnectiveDrive infotainment system, just to name a few.
Performance
But the innovation doesn’t stop there. A new 4.4 liter V8 engine makes its way to the Gran Coupe. An engine that features “reverse flow”, it is equipped with 2 turbochargers that are strategically placed to enhance power delivery.

The result is the production of 445 horsepower and 480 lb-ft. Not only was this engine more powerful, but it is also more fuel efficient. An all-new 8 speed automatic transmission is paired to this motor, providing a combination of responsiveness, efficiency, and speed. The 2013 BMW 650i Gran Coupe shapes up to be one of the most anticipated cars for 2012.

Speaking of the seats, the interior is still as flawless as ever, being luxurious and driver centered at the same time.
Performance

2011 Chevrolet COPO Camaro Concept

The Chevrolet Camaro, true to its tradition as a muscle car, is quite an active participant on the drag racing circuit even during the first time it hit the streets. And the most hardcore of Camaro fans know about the COPO (Central Office Production Order), a special model released in the ‘60s specifically designed to compete in Stock Eliminator division of the NHRA Drag Racing circuit. Chevrolet has now revived the COPO name tag in the 2011 Chevrolet COPO Camaro Concept.




Exterior & Interior
This concept managed to be a salute to Camaro heritage and a sneak peek on what lies ahead for the Camaro product line. While the COPO name tag serves to harken back to the time of the special order models of 1969, this concept is as track ready as it gets. In fact, this car is an obvious indicator that Chevrolet wants the Camaro to come back on the drag racing circuit.
Performance
The engine bay can accommodate 2 types of engines: a 5.3 liter supercharged engine and a 7.0 liter normally aspirated engine, both apparently tuned for drag racing purposes. Additional equipment include a full roll cage, a pair of lightweight seats, a Custom Aeromotive fuel system, a NHRA compliant suspension kit, racing brakes, and race ready tires.

The 2011 Chevrolet COPO Camaro Concept is strictly business both inside and out. Even better is that it seems that the release of this concept into production seems to be more like a question of when than if. The drag-ready Camaro is about to return in action.
