Video: The Science Behind Lexus Structural Blue Paint

Lexus Structural Blue

It’s Friday, so let’s celebrate with the perfect Lexus documentary — friends, here is the story of the Structural Blue paint used on the Lexus LC:

It’s one thing to read about new paint technology, but it’s another to see an expertly crafted video on the subject — it takes eight months to produce enough Structural Blue paint for 300 Lexus LCs.

(Hopefully this documentary is a sign of future things to come — this is one of my favorite all time Lexus videos.)

That was amazing, glad I was patient enough to wait and see if the structural blue is going to come out eventually. Any guesses on price of the inspiration series LC? $115k?

To be honest, I don't dig the inspiration CF door sills though.
I love this color!
As someone who makes similar equipment I'm genuinely amazed by a bold move of incorporating such an impractical technology just to produce a perfect paint. The process mentioned in the video is very expensive and, more importantly, time-consuming for large surfaces like automobile exterior. You see Lexus is sparing no effort in creating the LC a brand-defining flagship. This special edition could keep its resale value even better than some super cars of twice the price.
I'm just hoping to see one in person, because there's no way a video can represent what something like that actually looks like.

I don't believe I've seen this color either -- hoping there's one at the Detroit Auto Show.
