It appears as though Lexus has found a perfect solution to prevent drivers from swaying about when taking on aggressive corners. The technology is called the Load Coupling Rear Orientation (V-LCRO) and will be an option in the Lexus RC-F coupe and the GS F sedan.

It’s a proprietary technology that allows a driver to shoot into a bend at speed, while reducing movement across their back and seat. “While all performance cars use seat bolsters to hold a driver in place during aggressive manoeuvring, we’re taking it a step further,” said Brian Bolain general manager of Lexus product and consumer marketing.

Bolain adds that V-LCRO technology brings driver involvement to the next level. “In this case, the technology we’re employing is actually over 75 years old. The RC F and GS F are exhilarating, racing-inspired vehicles. By partnering with Velcro companies, our new V-LCRO technology enhances the driver’s ability to maximise the cars’ track-proven performance,” he explained.

Drivers who opt for this seat option however, will need to wear a specially designed suit that possesses a complex pattern of hooks and loops, which will create high levels of grip at all angles. Furthermore, it has been specifically designed to hold the driver in place at up to 3.0Gs – in all directions.

To give owners added exclusivity, the company provides a range of custom-tailored suits that perfectly matches the design of the RC F and GS F. According to Lexus, the stylish fashion line connects with the V-LCRO driver’s seats in form and function.

“The beauty of this technology is its simplicity,” said Lexus F Performance racing driver, Scott Pruett. He also highlighted that the system provides significant benefits for high performance driving. As to when we’ll see these V-LCRO seats? Probably on the first day of April, next year.
