ART ON THE MOVE

Lexus has un­veiled a strik­ing black and white painted LFA Art Car to cel­e­brate the de­but of its RC F GT3 con­tender in the To­tal 24 Hours of Spa en­durance race.

The pre­sen­ta­tion of this be­spoke, one-of-a-kind ve­hi­cle also marks the 10th an­niver­sary of the Lexus “F” per­for­mance brand. Por­tuguese artist Pe­dro Hen­riques trans­formed the car’s ex­te­rior with a flow­ing black and white pat­tern. He says he drew his in­spi­ra­tion from the idea of flu­id­ity in con­tem­po­rary life, “where things are in con­stant move­ment and it’s hard to freeze any­thing”. The LFA Art Car was part of the pa­rade be­fore the main race at the 70th edi­tion of the 24 Hours of Spa, the tough­est race in the Blanc­pain GT Se­ries cham­pi­onship.

There are only three of these now-clas­sic LFAS in SA.
