Across the Lexus range, every single detail is crafted to the highest standards. All aspects come together to create a refined, effortless experience for drivers and passengers alike.
Next time you slip into one of our cars, take a moment to admire the beautifully stitched seams that adorn the interior. Their simplicity and elegance betray nothing of how difficult they are to create.
The stitching must be executed precisely – every time. The effect is palpable as handcrafted lines contrast beautifully with the cutting-edge technology of the car’s gauges and dash instruments.
TESTED TO DESTRUCTION
Every batch of premium leather we work with is tested to the point of destruction. Only the strongest make the cut. All material must endure more than 30 extreme treatment tests before it's deemed worthy to trim our vehicle interiors.
We go through hell for leather, recreating the challenges it might encounter in its lifetime to ensure the highest quality. We test for abrasion, chemical, sunlight and temperature resistance, fusing creativity and scientific expertise to develop truly rigorous tests.
Our paint is complex, and full of character. We use a multi-layered process that entirely transforms the way the vehicle looks, and how it responds to the sun’s rays. Five coats are applied, and the paint is baked four times.
The depth and luminescence achieved is simply not possible to generate with traditional paintwork. When we introduced this revolutionary system, major changes to our production line were necessary. With vision, time, care and fine-tuning, we made it happen.
A perfect surface has effortless appeal, but is painstaking to create. After each coat of foundation paintwork, the car’s exterior is wet sanded by hand.
The finish is then checked by the keen eyes of Takumi craftsmen, as well as with digital scanners. No blemishes are missed. Flawless smoothness is the only option to meet our exacting standards.
The Takumi make certain every aspect of every car is finished to perfection. You’ll often see them donning white gloves and feeling for the smallest faults, all less than one millimetre in size.
They miss nothing, thanks to their heightened senses and matchless focus, born from years of training and craft.
FINELY TUNED ENGINEERING
Our engine tests are not merely automated. As well as using the latest technology to guarantee the highest standards, everything that lies under the bonnet is surveyed by a craftsman’s eye, too.
Human hands live in harmony with cutting-edge systems such as CAT scanning, borrowed from medical science. Unlike traditional scanners, these see right inside each engine, guaranteeing every single one meets Lexus's exacting quality requirements.
Takumi also use tools like the traditional stethoscope to ensure precision and quality are maintained at all times.
