2014 Lexus IS250C, IS F added to Takata recall

Lexus has added the 2014 IS250C and IS F to the Takata recall list, expanding on a campaign initially launched in January 2018. As with all Takata-related recall notices, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag propellant degrade. If a car fitted with a faulty inflator is involved in an accident where the airbag is triggered, metal fragments may shoot into the cabin, putting vehicle occupants at risk of serious injury or fatality.

Lexus IS built from cardboard is a driveable piece of art

Artists commissioned by Lexus UK have come up with a one-off full-size Lexus IS sedan created entirely from cardboard. Dubbed the Lexus Origami Car, the cardboard IS was designed and created by London-based firm LaserCut Works and Scales and Models, and took around three months to build. Lexus provided the cardboard artisans with a 3D CAD (computer aided design) model of the latest-generation IS sedan.
