Lexus brought along two models with a touch of JDM to SEMA, and they look terrific.
The Japanese car manufacturer has come a long way since its days of formal, “grey” offerings. It may sound like the classic fairytale cliché, but Lexus has made it, coming up with crisp, fresh, desirable products. It tried to remain relevant and released interesting, sporty designs that helped it increase its clientele significantly.
Lexus’ new line-up is already building a reputation on the streets and among tuners, and this isn’t the first time it shines at SEMA. In fact, Gordon Ting/Beyond Marketing and Lexus have already turned heads at the show, in 2014 with some cool machines, and this year history repeats itself with these two eye-protruding vehicles.
Featuring a Daily Visual 3M Gloss Burnt Orange wrap, both the GS F and the RC F come with a lot of accessories. They certainly are a lot more subtle (if you don’t count the orange wrap) than the models shown last year, but the amount of aftermarket dedication that went into them is still admirable.
The GS F comes equipped with a Tein suspension prototype street advance damper kit and is wearing Advan Racing GT premium Gloss Black wheels wrapped in Falken Azenis FK453 tires. It also has a GReddy supreme SP dual system exhaust that most likely lets the naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 roar, an Advanced FlowEngineering Takeda retain intake system and Brembo Performance brakes with 6 piston calipers. Styling wise, apart from the orange wrap and the rims, it only sports custom carbon fiber spoilers.
The RC F, on the other hand, can’t be missed. Not only thanks to its flashy body color, but for its Custom RC F Widebody GT Pandem aero kit as well. Yup, Tra-Kyoto has done it again, and this time the extravagant hue actually makes the Rocket Bunny styling pack even more flamboyant (if such a thing is possible). The car also sports a custom Evasive Motorsports six point roll cage and rides on Rays Engineering Volk Racing TE-37 Ultra Matte Blue Gunmetal 20-inch wheels.
