Check out the Fuel Cell Lexus LF-FC



It appears that the next-generation Lexus LF-FC will be gorgeous, and will run on a fuel cell drive train.

Quote:
“Lexus wants to surprise and evoke emotion with its distinctive design and forward-thinking technology. For us, it is more than just a car, and we should exceed conventional imagination. The LF-FC expresses our progressive luxury and high-tech vision of a not so distant future,” said Tokuo Fukuichi, Lexus International president.
Other new technologies shown off in the vehicle include an interface that is controlled by hand gesture, and an autonomous driving system.

It looks amazing and we could be seeing a production model in one or two years!
Wonder where the door handles are located. Couldn't find them in the video.

Love that first photo of how the fenders come up, helps to make the whole vehicle look aggressive, much unlike anything else i've seen from the brand, not even the current LS has anything like that going on.

I wish our front emblem would also light up like shown in the images.

Found some videos of the LF-FC as well. Check them out.

The hologram controls being used sure are fancy.

And then at the end of the video the car ends up in some type of heavenly light on the tundra.

It's all a little bit odd. At least if you make a video, it should be based in reality, or else what are we watching? Just a animated film about a fake car.

Those hologram controls seem possible to an extent, it's going to be part of the new era of smartphones and the operating systems they use, so naturally that will flow over to vehicles. This makes even more sense as we've heard about Apple and Android vehicle systems.

Even without the holograms the exterior design looks great. They went with triangles for this one and fine points.
In the side view you can see a sort of long triangle near the bottom connecting the back of the car to the front for a very sleek look.

Where have you seen a real life hologram similar to the ones in the video?

Great execution in pulling together the various body lines, all in a unique way.

You can see the hologram remote in the center. It seems quite obvious to me that it was added afterwards while the rest of the photo is actually the vehicle.

Also, what's with the hole in the dash to the right? Does that not just block part of the screen underneath?
