Lexus makes a cardboard car - level 3

Lexus makes a cardboard car - level 3

21-10-2015 07:00

Lexus has created the world's first drivable cardboard car. This one-off life-size model replica of Toyota's new IS Saloon is crafted in precision-cut cardboard using the origami technique.

“We’ve never heard of this things being done before. We’ve heard of scaled versions of this, possibly, but nothing to this scale where someone could actually enter the car and move it backwards and forwards. I think it’s something special we’ve done here.”

The design comes with a fully fitted interior, functioning doors, headlights and rolling wheels.

Difficult words: one-off (done only once), craft (to make something using a special skill), precision (done in a very exact way), scaled (smaller), scale (size).
