Speaking of the latter, the front passenger side has been transformed into a gaming station with a curved monitor and a seat with haptic feedback. There’s also a retractable keyboard and a one-off 3D printed game controller.

As for the vehicle itself, it’s based on the IS 350 F Sport. As a result, it has a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 311 hp (232 kW / 315 PS) and 280 lb-ft (380 Nm) of torque. It’s paired to either an eight- or six-speed automatic transmission, depending on whether it’s rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
