Got antsy over the new big body Lexus and since recently illustrating the sweet VIP rides of @mfxn0tserp and @nat7272 I wanted to get the jump on the LS500. I must admit, when I first saw the official release photos I was a little disappointed, I mean it looks a lot like I would have predicted. I wanted something that surprised me... and now that I see this lowered with some appropriate footwear and a shocking color, I love it.
I've spent over an hour trying to track down owners of some rare Toyotas for this project, but at least when I need to find a dope late-model big-body lexus it only takes seconds. Enter @nat7272's LS460L, VIP to the bone. Now only 39 variants left in my quest to illustrate every Toyota model ever sold in the US.
It's official. @mfxn0tserp's LS430 is the hottst VIP build in Hawaii. Super Street has decreed it so. As a former LS400 owner and a future LS460 owner, this kouki UCF30 tingles my jealousy nerve. And now he's building a lifted 4Runner and documenting the progress on his Instagram account. I'm gonna follow along.
The second-gen GS has a special place in my heart so I've been waiting to draw it until I could find the right one. Clean, understated and with just the right amount of VIP and sport, I think that this Mystic Gold example wearing Aodhan AH-03s and owned by @lp_yang is just about perfect.
Once upon a time I owned a big-body Lexus and was shopping for a used ES for my girl. It was a tiny little shadow of the LS400. But wow, have things changed. The new ES is sleek and long and low and modern. Today's example is owned by @daniel_shi37 and wears some of my favorite modern wheels, Avante Garde M540s. Drool.
I was working at a stereo shop here in Portland when the 1993 GS was unveiled. The shop owner bought one of the first ones and I thought that it was one of the sweetest cars I had ever laid eyes on. That fascination continues to this day. Spice it up with a bunch of VIP bits, some custom paint and a set of sweet Altstadt Type 1s and you end up with this GS owned by @dhoz82.
Damn, @suprememodellista, you have ALL the good Lexus porn! I needed to find a trick 4th-gen GS and it was a snap. I happened across @ceewok and his righteous bagged GS350 rolling on VSXXs. He slammed this thing together over the past year, and has some photos of his fun RSX as well. Go check it out.
It's another Lexus kinda day today, so let's check out @simondelorme's LS400. Gray, stanced properly and sitting on what look like some black XXR 527s, this car reminds me of my own 95 LS400 from back in the day.
