Lexus have made a replica of their IS saloon from cardboard, the car comes with an electric motor and it can be driven.
The car is called the Lexus Origami Inspired Car and it was made with 1,700 fully recyclable laser cut cardboard sheets, have a look at the video below.
Ruben Marcos, Scales and Models Company founder and director explained: “This was a very demanding job, with five people involved in the digital design, modelling, laser cutting and assembly. Just like Lexus, we were committed to producing the best possible quality.”
The creative process presented the team with a series of tough challenges: “The seats took a few attempts to get just right and the wheels required a lot of refining. Once we could see the physical pieces taking shape, we could identify where we needed to make improvements – as with anything, there were some elements of trial and error, but as we had all the resources we needed in-house, this made the changes easier to produce.”
The cardboard Lexus car features an aluminum frame where the electric motor is attached to and it comes with functioning doors, lights, wheels and a fully fitted interior.
