Lexus Pays Tribute to Takumi with Concept Car (Silicon Republic)

Lexus has built an electric concept car made almost entirely out of cardboard.

It has a steel and aluminium frame but otherwise the car is made entirely from 1700 laser-cut sheets of recycled cardboard.  Inspired by origami and traditional Japanese art the model doesn’t simply look like a car but actually drives as well.  It took three months to be hand built by the Lexus team using a 3-D model of a car to get the pieces right.   There are no plans to bring the vehicle to production due to its lack of weather protection and safety features.
