Lexus Origami Cardboard Car

Oct 7, 2015

We’ve seen cardboard houses, and then Google Cardboard. Now, Lexus has dipped their toes in the cardboard waters by creating a fully drivable cardboard car.

The cardboard car is a replica of the company’s sedan, and is put together using 1,700 sheets of precision-cut cardboard. Each cardboard plank is just 10mm thick, and they’re glued together by hand in sequence. Each piece took 10 minutes to dry, requiring patience by those who put it together. The project was put together following digital 3D model creation. After being put together, the car was mounted atop a steel and aluminum frame with an attached electric motor. We’re not sure why Lexus felt the need to have one of these built (according to the company it was to celebrate the skills of its craftspeople), but it seems like a pointless venture. Still, you have to admire the dedication it takes to create something like this. Check out the video below.
