Santa To Experience Amazing This Christmas Eve: The Lexus HX Sleigh Concept

Among the greatest secrets in this world surrounds the operations of one of the most benevolent beings on this planet. Although we can recognize his capacity for kindness, generosity and remarkable abilities to find the good in the world, a lot of aspects about Santa Claus (also known as Saint Nicholas, Kris Kringle and Father Christmas) are shrouded in secrecy. That being said, we have been able to create some elaborate visions surrounding the jolly man. Santa Claus’ appearance, North Pole headquarters and even his favourite foods have been constructed through a wide consensus. We have also predicted the image of the vehicle used by the man in the red suit as a rustic, 19th century-style sleigh being pulled by a group of magical reindeer. However, with this being the 21st century, is it possible that Santa is making deliveries in something more modern?

For the 2020 Christmas Eve journey, Lexus has offered Santa Claus an ultra-sophisticated sleigh. Sculpted by Takumi elves, the Lexus HX Sleigh Concept provides Mr. Kringle with a means to travel across the world with the benefits of functional luxury. Possibly making its debut in the skies of Christmas Eve for 2020, the Lexus HX Sleigh Concept is not the first time the luxury car builder has given Santa Claus a fresh perspective for delivering gifts. In 2012, the Lexus Flying Luxury Cruiser based on the brand’s LF-LC sport coupe design concept included a number of innovative features as well as an option to give reindeer a year off.

The enclosed, aerodynamic shape of the Lexus-branded sleigh provides incredible comfort, excellent cargo space and helpful high-tech solutions. According to Santa himself, "It was time for me to upgrade my capabilities to help deliver toys to all the children on my nice list more efficiently, so the Lexus HX Sleigh Concept couldn't have come at a better time. Mrs. Claus is excited to drive it, too!"

With a stunning Lexus front end featuring a sporty black-coloured grille and LED headlamps, the HX Sleigh Concept’s sizable rear hatch open to a cargo compartment boasting an unlimited capacity. Santa and elves can quickly load and unload thanks to an automatic trunk with Kick Sensor. The sleek exterior of the Lexus HX Sleigh Concept is covered in four-coat infrared paint.

The striking outer shape of the HX Sleigh Concept provides a comfortable shelter for the futuristic two-seat interior. Climate Concierge with Neck Warmer and a Mark Levinson Surround Sound Audio System provides Santa Claus with a sense of relief and relaxation as he travels between chimneys. Navigation for Christmas Eve is presented through Embedded Air Traffic Control that is operated through a 25-inch touch screen display.

The Lexus HX Sleigh Concept received a large amount of praise from Santa’s work colleagues in the North Pole. "I run a tight sleigh, and the combination of Lexus's trademark hybrid electric technology and well-honed All-Reindeer Drive will really allow us to take our job to the next level.” Said the Director of Reindeer Resources Rudolph. The celebrity, red-nosed reindeer added,  “With the added efficiency the Lexus HX Sleigh Concept gives us, I'm confident we'll even find some time to fit in some gift deliveries for grown-ups, too!"

Running 100 percent on renewable holiday spirit, the HX Sleigh Concept All-Reindeer Drive (ARD) system combines with Lexus’ hybrid electric technology supplies excellent propulsion for the one-night trip. 

While the children sleep ahead of Christmas morning, maybe adults can be treated with a glimpse of Santa’s new Lexus HX Sleigh Concept sailing in the sky.

Is More Imagination Needed Towards Indy 500 Pace Car Selection?

Photo Credit: General Motor/Chevrolet This weekend, the Indianapolis 500 will be run for its 100th time. A primary focus around a 500-mile auto race around a historic 2.5-mile race track has resulted in a far amount of traditions. Some of these traditions such as the Fast 9 qualifying shootout and the honorary starter are newer aspects while one of the oldest is the ceremonial pace setter used to lead the field to the green flag. A staple of the Indy 500 since the first race in 1911, the pace car history ranges from a Stoddard-Dayton roadster to a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 used in last year’s event. This year’s Indianapolis 500 will feature an all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS trimmed in a special preview of the 50th Anniversary Package. The beautiful Abalone White sixth generation Camaro convertible features a 455-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8 LT1 engine perfect for maintaining pace lap speed ahead of a 33-car contingent of machines set to run at speed of 230 miles per hour.
