You’ve seen the Lexus CS 2054 concept used in Minority Report, now lay eyes on the sleek Lexus RZ Sport Concept, an electric SUV that could go into production. It comes equipped with high output 150 kw motors in the front and rear to achieve even more powerful driving performance, making it perfect for both street driving as well as the track.

This futuristic Lexus CS 2054 concept was used in the 2002 film “Minority Report” starring Tom Cruise and designed by Harald Belker who collaborated with Calty, the Toyota/Lexus design studio in California. There really is no back story to this vehicle other than it purportedly ran on fuel cells in the movie, inspired by the 1956 Philip K. Dick short story “The Minority Report”.
First unveiled the 2010, the Lexus LFA is still claimed by some to be the best sounding supercar yet. The Lexus Electric Supercar concept may not change that, but does give us hope that the automaker has an LFA successor in the works. No definite specifications have been confirmed, although the company did say that it has a 435-mile range on a single charge and the ability to hit 62 mph in the low 2-second range.
Lexus is known for its luxury vehicles, but their latest project is anything but. Introducing their all-new ROV (Recreational Off-highway Vehicle) Concept with an innovative hydrogen powertrain that offers near zero-emissions driving combined with extreme off-road capability. Measuring 3,120 mm (length), 1,725 mm (width), 1,800 mm (height), the cabin features a leather steering wheel, sculpted shift knob and seats which their own suspension elements for a smooth ride.
Sure, the all-new 2022 Lexus LX 600 may have taken the limelight at the company’s press conference earlier this week, but its futuristic Off-Highway Recreational Vehicle Concept is definitely worth a second look. Why? It’s powered by a hydrogen combustion engine that produces only water as a byproduct, and can tackle just about any terrain, including swamps as well as muddy trails.
Limited to 100-pieces worldwide, the sleek Fender Lexus LC Stratocaster guitar was designed by Principal Master Builder, Ron Thorn, and sports an omnidirectional Structural Blue finish, which is essentially a spectral range that produces light metallic blue to deep midnight blue inspired by the Morpho butterfly. This is also the same paint used on the Lexus LC 500 coupe and the limited convertible Inspiration Series.
The Lexus LF-Z Electrified aims to kick off the brand’s electric future, and it’s a doozy. This crossover boasts a 90kWh battery pack that helps it achieve a 0-62 mph time of just 3 seconds, with a max output of 400kW and 700Nm of torque. However, the real technology is found inside, starting with its panoramic roof made of electrochromic glass that can be dimmed instantly when required and has functions for privacy as well as illumination that reflects the night sky.

The Lexus IS Wax Edition, which is basically a modified 2021 Lexus IS sports sedan, is probably the world’s first and only with a fully functional turntable built into the dashboard capable of playing vinyl records. It was put together by legendary DJ and producer MC Madlib and chart-topping artist and producer KAYTRANADA to create a brand-new double-single on vinyl. The record player was created with a 3D printer and modified with carbon fiber as well as machined aluminum.
Streetwear collective RTFKT partnered with Lexus to create a pair of sneakers inspired by the auto manufacturer’s 2021 IS 350 F Sport Dynamic Handling Package. The team modeled the shoe after the car’s athletic stance, slim headlights, carbon fiber spoiler and even its bold color schemes. Artists first selected a base with a sole closely resembling a tire for their custom silhouette, complete with a front shaped like the vehicle’s signature spindle grille and sporting 3D printed material imitating the carbon fiber spoiler of the car.

Lexus Gamers’ IS is unofficially the first vehicle designed by and for the Twitch community as the ultimate gaming space. Streamer Fuslie had over 554,000 unique viewers vote on modifications ranging from the gaming-themed exterior wrap to the custom controller to their “game fuel” beverage of choice and then the fabrication experts at SCPS brought the vehicle to life. On the outside, the vehicle features the custom “Infiltrate” vinyl wrap, which has an interface-driven, HUD-centric design territory reminiscent of first-person gaming.
