In the past 12 months there probably hasn't been another concept car that's received so much polarizing attention as the Lexus LF-NX.

It's been a product that has a lot of folks saying "Oh my" in a good way and leaving others revolted claiming it looks too much like the fictional alien in the movie Predator.

What's our take you ask? I'll tell you right now that it photographs awfully but when you see it in real life it's a very convincing design that will turn your opinion VERY quickly. It's very aggressive and definitely cutting edge.

Of course as we reported to you it will be toned down quite a bit as it transitions from concept to reality. We're hoping it isn't so watered down that it loses its panache.

That said, stay tuned to the product debut in Beijing AND, if we're lucky, perhaps we'll be graced by its presence in New York — I am not crossing my fingers.

Lexus' press release follows:
