Lexus has partnered with super conductive technology specialists to create an advanced Hoverboard Concept.


The Lexus Hoverboard operates using magnetic levitation technology – with liquid nitrogen cooled superconductors and permanent magnets – to achieve frictionless movement.

The technology is wrapped in a body that adopts the brand’s design DNA, featuring the trademark spindle grille signature shape and adopting materials found in the product line-up, from the high tech to natural bamboo.
