This car is so ugly it will become a collector item much like the '59 Cadillac Eldorado (with the giant Flash Gordon fins) or the Pontiac Aztek. Pure Japanese horror movie....

Keep in mind this is a concept so final product will look markedly different. However I do agree with spydrz, this will definitely not drive the same

Yes, in 2008 in Paris. Unlike other car manufacturers, BMW has traditionally presented concept models that go virtually unchanged into production. They spend an incredible amount of time in getting their design right the first time.



I read that the Lexus LX-NF (if launched) will compete to steal some market share from the Evoque which also features a radical design. So, my impression is that it will be more off-road oriented, leveraging Toyota's experience in that market segment (e.g., Land Cruiser, FJ Cruiser.) I don't believe there is another SAV (yet) that competes directly with the X1 as far as on-road capabilities.

RAV4 underpinnings guarantee that.

I thought concepts were supposed to look "better" than the actual production models. This thing is ridiculously ugly.

It's radically ugly enough to have a fan base. I'd test drive it but generally I don't like the way any Lexus drives.

Plus it has the unnecessary weight of a hybrid system, which could be cured with a diesel or the IS-F's 5.0L V8.
