It looks like Lexus has been bitten by the same interior design bug that's been eating away at the German auto builders for years. It's the minimalist bug.

While the exterior of the all-new Lexus LF-C2 Concept was edgy and in-your-face, the interior seems to be more of a spa-like atmosphere. Note the cool interior colors of white and gray? Looking at the center console and stack, it's clear that this is a place of simplicity.

The dashboard design is presents functional simplicity with an attractive-yet-straightforward instrument cluster, a central video monitor controlled by a Remote Touchpad on the center console and a classically-styled analog clock placed between the central air vents. The thick leather-wrapped steering wheel implies that this is a driver’s car, as do the form-fitting seats.

The LF-C2’s interior designers opted to instill a balanced atmosphere of power and simplicity that harmonizes with our primary senses. White-and-gray leather surfaces are soft to the touch while LED lights that run along the length of the interior below the windows. The inviting cabin of the LF-C2 blends the open-air excitement that results from an eye-catching roadster blended with a heavy dose of Lexus luxury...
