There's A Car Made Entirely Of Cardboard And You Can Actually Drive It (Photos)

Art comes in various shapes, sizes and forms. In this case, it is presented in the form of a Lexus.

That's right. Lexus used 1,700 sheets of laser-cut cardboard to create the Lexus Origami Car.

A description of the Lexus Origami Car on the brand's blog reads,

There's never been a Lexus quite like it: sheet metal, glass and plastics have been set aside for the creation of a one-off, life-sized recreation of the Lexus IS… Crafted in precision-cut card.

I can't help but wonder how this thing would hold up in a torrential downpour.

Regardless of its durability, you have to admit it's pretty awesome-looking. After all, Lexus' slogan is "Creating Amazing."

Check out the photos below for a closer look!

Behold, a Lexus crafted completely out of cardboard.

It's called the Lexus Origami Car.

The Lexus Origami Car took about three months to complete.

As you can see, every single part of the car is made out of cardboard.

The car was created with 1,700 sheets of 10mm-thick, laser-cut cardboard after Lexus provided its Origami Car team with a 3D, digital model of the IS.

Even the interior is made out of cardboard. Cozy!

I think it's safe to say Lexus is still "Creating Amazing."

Those interested in seeing the Lexus Origami Car in person can do so at the Grand Designs Live show at the NEC in Birmingham, England from October 8 to the 11.

Check out the video below for a closer look at the artistic process behind the car.
