Some of today`s cars are so thriling tat your heart beats like it wants to get out of your chest. Lexus RC-F Coupe is one of this cars, thanks to a high-reving V8, capable of delivering over 500 hp, which is enough to handle the German rivals: BMW M4 and Audi RS5. To get the car even more close to its driver, Lexus has created the first car that directly translates the driver’s heart patterns into a striking visual display across the bodywork. The testing vehicle was the RC-F Heartbeat vehicle, a result of collaboration between Lexus Australia and the creative agency M&C Saatchi. Different technologies have been integrated into the car to monitor the driver’s heartbeat and use the data captured to send an electric charge through the bodywork. The body panels are finished in an electro-luminescent paint, produced by the US specialist Luminor, which reacts to the charge with an intense glow, pulsing in the same rhythm as the driver’s heart rate.
