This Lexus IS Contains a Turntable in the Glovebox

Installing a turn table inside a car seems like an impractical thing to do; after all, vinyl records will skip at the slight bump. Well, leave it to the guys at Lexus to prove them wrong with this customized Lexus IS which sports, you guessed it, a turntable in the glove box.

The Lexus IS Wax Edition has a fully functional turntable crammed into the glove box. Created using a 3D printer and modified with carbon fiber and machine aluminum, it’s large enough to play a full-size 12-inch record.

Once the needle hits the grooves, a rotating motor helps stabilize the turntable to avoid skipping while the vehicle is in motion. Of course, the adaptive suspension system of the Lexus IS provides a smooth and stable ride, critical for the needle of a record player (check out our review of the Lexus IS 350 F Sport).

With vinyl listening once again on the rise and the Lexus IS attracting drivers with a passion for authenticity and amazing experiences, Lexus thinks this creative concept was a challenge worth pursuing.

The modified vehicle, designed to celebrate the launch of the 2021 Lexus IS sports sedan, will not be for sale but will be on display at future Lexus events.
