It sits on a wheelbase measuring 2,606mm. Exterior design was the brainchild of car designers headed by Lexus Design general manager, Kengo Matsumoto. Armed with a carbon fibre roof, and carbon fibre body designed to tackle downforce, air scoops are located over the rear fenders. Two small aft vents expel air to cool the titanium exhaust pipes. Two hood ducts move hot air away from the exhaust manifold. Front and rear fenders, doors and roof rails are made of fibre reinforced sheet panels. LED lights are seen in the tail lamps.
