Lexus Has Debuted Their New UX Concept At The Paris Motor Show
Lexus has unveiled its UX SUV concept at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. Lexus says that the new concept simply ‘takes Lexus’ design language to the new level’, rather than previews a new model. The Lexus UX Concept is not only likely to become a production model, it is also the stuff of nightmares. With exaggeratedly massive wheels made of knives, front fenders from a cubist reimagining of a Porsche 911 and also an interior that’s barely rooted in reality, it’s a proper concept car in that it’s properly ludicrous.
The UX wears an aggressive, head-turning look that builds on Lexus’ current design language. It just sits high off the ground thanks in part to large alloy wheels, and it features a sleek silhouette that puts a much bigger emphasis on the style than on function. Thin LED tail lamps, suicide rear doors, and tiny cameras in lieu of the door mirror add a futuristic touch to the overall look.
Once you move inside the car, it gets crazier. The seats are barely more than spider webs, and borrowing largely from the Lexus Kinetic Seat concept. The interior sports a see-through A-pillar and a 3D imagery in the gauge cluster, as well.
The interior is even wilder than the exterior. The cabin is fitted with the five screens; two that display the footage captured by the cameras that replace the mirrors, one of that replaces the instrument cluster, one that runs the infotainment system, and another one on the long, sloping center console.
With the introduction of this UX Concept, Lexus is making sure it stands out — about as far away from crowd as possible, really.
