What you see in the picture above, it is not just a model car. After the Lexus gave us a working model of a levitating skateboard, now it’s time for something more interesting. The Japanese are allied with the companies LaserCut Works and Scales and Models, which specialize in designs and prototypes in the technology business. Together with them the car company has created a version of the sedan Lexus IS, which is inspired by origami modeling.

Origami Car, as Lexus are named his creation and is fully functional cardboard sedan. Under a fully functional, of course, I mean one that can be driven. Powered by an electric motor, which together with the framework of aluminum and steel is the only thing not made of cardboard here. Doors, tires – everything in this car works.

The cardboard Lexus IS is based on a 3D model of the vehicle that is used for the design of 1700 parts of cardboard, each thick as 10 millimeters. Custom built team took three months to build it, and the parts stay together thanks to the water-based wood glue.

Do not expect, however, to drive this car – with this Lexus models are intended only to show that with today’s technology can be built everything from just about any material. The only limit really is our imagination, as they say.
