When you have as fun-filled a year as Lexus had in 2015, you don't let it end without one last stunt. The luxury carmaker has followed up its hoverboard and cardboard IS sedan projects with an equally weird-but-compelling design: an NX crossover riding on a set of ice wheels.

Lexus has unveiled its new LF-FC concept at the Tokyo Motor Show. The concept provides an indication of the design and technology the company intend to include in its future flagship sedan, including a new styling theme, a luxurious interior and innovative control and driving tech.

Lexus has shown off its new 2016 GS range. In addition to the existing GS 350 and GS 450h models, a new GS 200t has been added to the line. As well as updated styling, the new GS models feature a number of intelligent safety features.

For years, designers and startups have been attempting to mimic fiction and create a hoverboard like the one famously piloted by Marty McFly in Back to the Future II. Those efforts have only accelerated now that it's 2015, the year in the "future" that the famous hoverboard scene was set.
