N E W M O D E L WATCH When the rest of the world said no, Lexus and its team of designers and engineers said there’s no such thing as no, only yes. View the stunning detail of the LC Coupé captured in its premiere video. WATCH A ground-breaking film-making project has shunned CGI trickery in favour of real-world projection mapping artistry on an unprecedented scale. Experience the visual delight as a mountainside is transformed as an LC passes by on a winding road. Added Mori, “I was thrilled how we were able to achieve the small front and rear overhangs by designing one of world’s slimmest headlight units, which uses sophisticated lenses to focus the LED beams. We have also designed very compact rear lights that use twin mirrors to create infinite reflection patterns.” Another breakthrough was with the front suspension towers. Constructing them from aluminium saved more than 10kg compared to conventional steel. The concept’s interior was not that of a true driver’s car, so the team had to create a more welcoming space. “We wanted to make the driver and passenger feel comfortable and at home, something you can see in details like the two handgrips placed next to the passenger seat.” Did they succeed in creating another masterpiece for Lexus? You be the judge.
