The remote-controlled RC F might be a tiny—but the car control demonstrated in the “Play Time” video LexusVehicles released yesterday is immense. Where does the operator even stand to get the perspective needed to judge these microscopic tolerances? I think it’s time for a behind-the-scenes video, not to mention a GoPro.
Here’s something that shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone: LF-LC GT “Vision Gran Turismo” looks bonkers awesome. It’ll hit the virtual tarmac in Gran Turismo 6 this spring as part of a free update. Until then, you’ll just have to tide yourselves over with these killer pics.
Obviously, this isn’t a license to drive your Lexus RX 350 4WD into a wall for sport. But a just-released Insurance Institute for Highway Safety study showed that between 2009 and 2012, no driver died behind the wheel of the mid-size luxury crossover.
So, I’m going to forgive the fact that this “commercial” is a pretty obvious ploy to get Lexus fans to subscribe to The Lexus Vehicles, which, as official as it might sound, is not the real one.
When I first saw the Craigslist post for the 1996 LS 400 with nearly 900,000 miles on the clock, I was hoping it would go to a good home—and it did. Matt Farah from the Smoking Tire saw the post, flew to Florida and bought it.
