Situated at the company’s research and development headquarters in Japan’s Aichi Prefecture, the lab’s custom-built wind tunnel is a cavernous, 22-meter-high, 260-meter-long loop. If it were stretched out and tipped on its end, it would be as tall as many of Tokyo’s highest skyscrapers.
The laboratory’s opening in March 2013 was a significant moment in Lexus’s history. It pitches the firm as a global automotive leader in the field of aerodynamics – the science of how airflow affects a car’s noise levels, dynamic characteristics and environmental specifications.
