What's the news?

This tiny glimpse of the back quarter of a big SUV is the new Lexus LF-1 Limitless, a 'striking new concept' due for a reveal at the start of 2018.

Lexus, which has just announced a seven-seat version of its largest SUV, the RX, says the LF-1 Limitless, penned by the CALTY design studio in southern California, is a 'flagship crossover that redefines the boundaries of luxury'.

If that's the case, we could be looking at something to rival the likes of the Range Rover and Maserati Levante at the upper end of the SUV spectrum, the LF-1 surpassing machines such as the Audi Q7, BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLS. Indeed, the all-new BMW X7 could be seen as a key rival.

No words on specs or details of the LF-1 Limitless as yet, but expect it to be powered - for at least one model in the range - by a hybrid drivetrain of some sort, possibly the spec as used by the RX 450h or the LC 500h.

Anything else?

Lexus is going to reveal the LF-1 Limitless concept in full at the first motor show of 2018, the North American International Auto Show - or NAIAS. It is held in January.
