Toyota’s luxury brand Lexus is getting closer to Santa Claus these days by offering him an alternative to the old sledge and reindeer.
According to the car manufacturer, the Lexus Flying Luxury Cruiser is based on the LF-LC Concept car, and the model has been equipped with a lower sled gear, with large LED lights, with GPS navigation system, with an Enform infotainment system, with a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and more. The model is powered by the Lexus Hybrid Drive system, which is producing 800 “reindeerpower”, significantly more than the LF-LC concept’s 500 HP, we think, because the conversion can’t be made so easily.
As a quick reminder, the LF-LC Concept has been designed at the Calty design studio in California. The model came with state-of-the-art amenities, such as the remote touch-screen control board used for the audio system, two 12.3-inch LCD screens, pop-up touch screen keyboard for complex entries, navigation and climate control, touch screen controllers used for the windows, mirrors, personal entertainment and door panels and many other things. Power was provided by a hybridized 5.0 liter V8 engine, allowing the model to spring from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds.
