LEXUS PROJECTS

A SET OF AMBITIOUS PROJECTS EXPLORING THE COMPLEXITY AND BEAUTY OF MOTION - STARTING WITH OUR FIRST PROJECT 'STEPS'. STEPS IS THE STORY OF ONE LARGER-THAN-LIFE FIGURE MOVING THROUGH A CITY IN SEARCH OF SOMETHING SPECIAL.

CREATING AMAZING: THE RX

EACH NEW RX MUST PROVE ITSELF IN A SERIES OF INCREDIBLE TESTS, INCLUDING AT LEAST TWO MINUTES IN A STORM CHAMBER THAT SIMULATES THE FEROCITY OF A NATURAL TYPHOON

Lexus puts each new RX through intense tests that far exceed the real-world scenarios a vehicle will endure in its life on the road. Before reaching the showroom, each model has already been inspected for surface flaws in a light tunnel, checked for perfect smoothness by a master technician trained to feel the difference between two sides of a sheet of paper, subjected to wind and hail simulations, and bombarded with 200mm of rainfall per hour in a typhoon chamber.

Withstanding between two and 10 minutes in the Lexus storm test without letting in a drop of rain is no small feat; the volume of water inside the chamber is about twice the average rainfall recorded in a severe typhoon.

In this short film, we catch a glimpse of the life of the storm chasers who thrive on experiencing these extreme conditions in nature. And in the image gallery below, storm chaser describes some of the most awesome weather he’s encountered and explains how it feels to experience such conditions first-hand.

CREATING AMAZING: THE GS

LEXUS DYNAMIC HANDLING, A NEW SYSTEM INSTALLED IN THE GS F SPORT, EMBRACES COUNTERINTUITIVE FORCES TO CREATE A STABLE YET EXHILARATING DRIVE – WITH INTRIGUING PARALLELS IN THE WORLD OF FREEDIVING

In the short film above, freediver and author of One Breath Emma Farrell talks about overcoming the body’s natural urge to breathe, while Lexus magazine’s Doug Knox describes how similarly counterintuitive forces have been harnessed in the engineering of Lexus Dynamic Handling.

This new system, installed for the first time in the new GS F SPORT, brings together the car’s steering controls and various sensors to create an exhilarating and agile drive. It’s also the world’s first combination of a dynamic handling system and hybrid drive technology.

At high speeds, the rear wheels turn slightly in the same direction as the front wheels to sharpen the car’s steering responses. At lower speeds, the front wheels steer in the opposite direction from the rear. While this might appear counterintuitive, it actually makes for excellent control and precision, underpinned by safety and stability.

In the accompanying image gallery, apnea author Fred Buyle shares some highlights of the underwater world he’s visited in a life spent pushing the limits of the human body as a freediver and marine photographer.
