Lexus is not a separate car manufacturer, but a brand of Japanese Toyota Motor Corporation. Toyota has been one of the largest automakers in the world for years - and continues to do so today. The Lexus brand was launched in 1989 and embodies the premium segment of the group. Both Toyota and Lexus vehicles are largely produced in Toyota’s own factories in Japan. In contrast to Toyota, Lexus was not particularly widespread in Europe (especially in Germany) for a long time. Due to the ever larger model range, which is also increasingly tailored to the European market, Lexus has been enjoying increasing popularity in this country for some years. Tuning also plays a major role at Lexus, as with most Japanese car brands. Due to the excellent design, which was partly even inspired by the culture of Japan, the premium models of the Toyota Group with the right car tuning become special and unique vehicles.
