Lexus LF-NX concept - It's....certainly different

This is the Lexus LF-NX concept, a "mid-sized crossover model."  Come on Lexus, it's more than that.

I love it.  OK it isn't the most beautiful creation but it is distinctive, and different, and fresh, and all those other words people use to describe things that are often a bit stupid.  But this isn't stupid.  It's brilliant.

Too many concepts are normal, too many cars are boring.  This is anything but normal and boring.  I would love to see LF-NXs on the road.  It would make the world a more colourful place.

Boringly the LF-NX isn't powered by a nuclear reactor or a Girodyne SRB42 sublight engine but by Lexus' Hybrid Drive System.

I've only one complaint about the Lexus LF-NX.  The wheel arches are a bit ordinary.  OK, and the boot lid is too high.  And the fuel filler flap appears to overlap with the rear light clusters.  But that's all.

The Lexus LF-NX concept will be on display at the Lexus stand from 10 September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
