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.

Morbid Motoring History: Transaxle of James Dean’s Porsche 550 Spyder Up For Auction

Photo Credit: Porsche AG untitled More than 65 years after James Dean’s fatal highway crash on U.S. Route 466, a verifiable piece has surfaced of the vehicle involved in the ill-fated Porsche 550 Spyder the 24-year-old actor drove in his last moments of life. Through an online auction being held on Bring A Trailer , buyers with a desire to obtain a rather ghoulish gearbox. The Porsche 550 Spyder was one of the first purpose-built race cars assembled to establish a name of what was once a small sports car located in Stuttgart, Germany. A derivative of Porsche’s 356 production car, the 550 Spyder’s compact, lightweight stature (the 550 was in reference to the vehicle’s weight in kilograms) combined with a mid-mounted 1,500 cc flat-four engine proved almost instantly superior in competition.
