Here we go - a few more gear knob and steering wheel pics - it’s utterly beautiful, brilliant quality and not at all bland, which I love.

The Japanese Takumi craftsmanship and design touches are just lovely. I feel very undeserving of such a car!

Looks like georgeous soft grain leather - you rarely get that in a German equivalent.

It feels absolutely superb (and the interior currently smells amazing too)

Lexus ES300h MY21

Here’s some lovely interior details taken in the near dark










The variety and quality of materials, the machining on the aluminium and the texture on any black trim so it’s not just flat, the height adjustable cup holder, the texture on the controls, the sound of the door closing make the designers efforts worthwhile.

Yeah - it’s very neat and tidy, beautifully engineered and nice to see quite a bit of sound deadening inside the bay too.

Knowing how the GS450h engine looked after nearly 15 years and 129,000 miles, I have real confidence that this one should have no issues as it looks just as well constructed. It’s amazing to thinking that the GS450h almost looked the same at its age!
