A 360˚ digital immersive driving experience that takes you inside the brutal elegance of the RC F, and the split second decision making of a real track race.

The big idea

Lexus were launching the most powerful V8 road car engine they had ever produced, and to bring this brutal power to live we took it back to its roots: the race track.

The solution 

A virtual reality race where the driver selects from two models: a smooth or aggressive drive. The branching experience was filmed at the Ascari race track and created for Oculus Rift, then translated into an immersive mobile app, with 3d Google cardboard compatibility, and 360˚ interactive YouTube videos
