Members of the Lexus UK PR and social media team have been conducting video conference meetings from the virtual driving seats of some of the most popular Lexus models. They’ve enjoyed it so much they decided to release the five virtual backgrounds to enhance online meeting experiences.
The virtual cockpits are available for the legendary LFA supercar , the high-performance RC F coupe, the popular LC sports coupe and the Omotenashi-inspired interior of the luxury LS saloon, where there is a choice of driving or being chauffeured from its sumptuous and spacious rear seats. These are the perfect way to get behind the wheel of a Lexus if you can’t get out and drive one.
The Lexus award-winning interiors are renowned for their exquisite design and high levels of comfort, for example, the Lexus RX won the Best Interior and Comfort category in the 2019 Driver Power survey.
How to use Lexus virtual backgrounds:
