Lexus LF-LC Hybrid Sport Coupe Concept Car – First Look Before Detroit Auto Show

Expected to offer dozens of green cars this year, the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit will feature the Lexus LF-LC Sports Coupe Hybrid Concept Car. At least Lexus promises it to be a hybrid.

Smooth lines and an elongated hood are elements of the new LF-LC concept designed by Calty design studio in Newport Beach, California.

Lexus continues to show its confidence as new vehicles are bolder as they move forward in a new brand direction. After the leaking of the hybrid concept Lexus released official photos. And even the small glimpses of the LF-LC have sent the media into a frenzy wanting to see more.

Sharp lines and an upscale contemporary direction, the Lexus hybrid super car is sure to get a large crowd admiring the aggressive lines at the Auto Show in Detroit on Monday.

Honda Hydrogen CB750 Motorbike Concept

When Honda introduced the original CB750 to the United States in 1969, it was the first to offer a front disc brake and a straight-4 engine with overhead camshaft. With the introductory price of $1,495, the CB750 had many advantages over its rivals. In production from 1969 to 2003, Cycle Magazine called it “the most sophisticated production bike ever.” And the Discovery Channel ranked it third in the top ten greatest motorbikes of all time.

New style and function were added to the famous motorbike thanks to Igor Chak. Powered by a four-cylinder liquid hydrogen engine, the only thing you’ll be emitting is water. This CB750 is controlled by an OLED touch screen with WiFi, GPS, and 3G. The 5″ OLED multi-touch display and computer has three menu options – GPS, Drive Modes and Diagnostics Mode. Diagnostics mode includes lap times, gas consumption, and top speed. Whenever you feel your bike isn’t performing well, you can connect it to your home computer. Made in a combination of carbon fiber, aluminum and titanium, the weight is kept down. The CB750 comes with ABS, airbag, steering damper and radar technology that could sense an upcoming head-on collision and automatically slow the bike.
