Lexus LS600h L – Click above for high-res image gallery

It's heartbreaking. You buy a high-end luxury automobile, stand back and take in the lustrous paint job. But within a few months, you're already noticing little nicks and scratches, particularly around the door handles where your fingernails routinely collide with the soft paint. Well Lexus, for one, is coming up with a solution.

By adding a new ingredient to the clearcoat that seals in the paint, Lexus' new paint process enhances molecular bonding to create a more elastic, fluid topcoat that can restore its consistency against the harmful effects of, you know... cleaning brushes and fingers. The process is tipped to debut on the flagship LS sedan, but from there will probably find its way across the Lexus range.
