At the heart of the new concept from Lexus is the newest platform with classic layout and rear drive wheels. All-wheel drive versions, of course, will also be present, but it’s worth starting from the rear-wheel drive layout. As the use of power plants, the serial model of the large and luxurious crossover Lexus promises unlimited possibilities. Perhaps that’s why the prototype is named Lexus LF-1 Limitless (limitless is literally translated as unlimited). The manufacturer hints that there will be a lot of versions of the novelty, from crossovers with conventional gasoline engines and a hybrid powerplant, to cars with hydrogen power plants and all electrical modifications.
