Lexus always seem to describe the design of their cars as either "brave", "bold" or "unique". It's quite likely that Lexus aren't looking to make beautiful cars. They're not going for sexy styling either. I think they want to make their whole lineup look cool and outlandish. Some of their cars can even be described as unworldly. The LS+ Concept looks like one of those designs you either love or hate but, regardless of what you think, it's a huge step forward in innovation from the original LS that debuted in 1989 (seen right).
