Lexus has brought out the new LF-CC coupe to put on display at the 2012 Paris auto show. The gorgeous car sports a crazy lot of LCD-screens, showing us a glimpse of how automobile interiors will be in future.

The LF-CC's interior has a number of large, bright displays and the dashboard is divided into an upper Display Zone, with a multi-display screen positioned for at-a-glance viewing, and a lower Operation Zone, with a new-design shift lever and touchpad display for remote control of a range of vehicle systems.

The two-door hybrid coupe concept also has a smartphone-sized touch display integrated into the armrest.

"The zonal treatment creates a fusion of an airy and spacious cabin with a sporting cockpit that puts the emphasis on a snug and focused driving environment. All the drive function controls are located immediately around the driver's seat, combining excellent ergonomics with advanced HMI technologies," said Lexus.

The rear-wheel drive, full hybrid LF-CC is powered by a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine mated to a compact, high-output, water-cooled permanent magnet electric motor.

When Lexus first released the images of the new LF-CC concept, there was a lot of speculation that the concept hints at the production version of the next-generation IS. However, Lexus does say clearly that the concept hints at a new mid-size coupe.

With that in mind, the concept you see here most likely shows us how the production version of the GS Coupe will look like. The almost production-ready model will inspire a coupe version of the next IS series to compete against the BMW 3/4 Series Coupe.
