The arrival of the next generation Lexus RX is set in a collection of stunning night-time cinematography, ranging from a bridge, a greyhound racing club, a set of roadside thistles and the streets of a quiet country town. “We’ve pursued it for thousands of miles. But now it’s looking over its shoulder. It can feel our warm breath on the back of its neck. We’ve been close to perfection before, but we’ve never been this close”.
