As the saying goes, the way you drive says a lot about who you are. That’s especially true for art collector Walter Vanhaerent as his new Lexus IS 300h hybrid has been modified to paint his portrait each time he drives based on how he drives.
A large LCD screen on the dash displays the artwork as it is being painted. Custom software is used to paint his portrait in the style of artist Sergio Abliac with influence on how he drives. For example, the portrait will feature more detail if Vanhaerent drives slowly and will lean towards the abstract side if he drives fast.
Even the colors used in the painting are left up to chance. Cooler colors are used when the electric drivetrain is powering the vehicle while warmer colors are only utilized when the car is running on gasoline.
