Lexus teamed up with the Cerebral Palsy Foundation to create an LX-inspired ride-on vehicle for a very special girl:
The ride-on vehicle was revealed to its recipient, Finley Smallwood, in March – a month also designated as National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month. Together, Lexus and the Cerebral Palsy Foundation identified specific mobility challenges faced by children with cerebral palsy, and Finley in particular.
Because it can be difficult for Finley to sit for long periods of time, modifications were first made to the seat, adding side padding for lateral support around her waist along with an adjustable headrest and a five-point harness. Her customized ride-on car also includes increased door size and reduced ground clearance to allow for ease of entry and exit.
The mini-LX was also painted Finley’s favourite color, purple, and features a joystick controller rather than the traditional steering wheel and foot pedals. Kudos to Lexus for supporting such a noble cause.
