Video Tour of the Lexus LC Factory in Japan

Lexus LC Factory Tour

Japanese website LOVE CARS has published a video tour of the Lexus LC assembly line at the Motomachi factory in Japan:

(It’s a rare thing to see this level of raw footage from inside a Lexus factory, and that makes this video pretty much the best.)

Comments
I love that the LC assembly line looks cooler than some companies' actual cars.
This video was a little disappointing to me, honestly. I've seen some other Lexus videos over the years about employees going through an anti-static process, a room that blows strong air towards them to remove lint and excess fibers from clothes, etc. More detail on the paint and finishing process, craftsmanship of the leather, dash and details.

The video was just rather sparse on details, IMO, and that's what makes this car - and this factory - great.

Agreed disappointing video with little detail info could have been much better. Car does look amazing though wish it well hope it bolsters the Sales figures which are of concern at the moment.
Any more news on the possible discontinue of the GS?

It's not. That was an error; see the GS threads.

While the video is disappointing because it can provide more details, the article provides some good ideas about how LC is made. The english translation is not too bad.

Learn something from the article --- 30cm between light sources for inspection. Vertical lines of light to see any deformation of the body.

While I definitely agree the video could have had more detail, it was from Lexus Japan -- any further detail would have been in Japanese and a complete mystery to most of us. Lexus Japan isn't in the habit of providing subtitles. :mad:

Anybody else wishing their garage was lit up like this?

Very nice. Seriously itching to order an LC.

I think it's better my garage isn't lit up like this -- my OCD is bad enough.

Also, it's time for you to buy an LC.
