Drifting and Japanese car culture brought forward some head turning cars that have influenced the way enthusiasts modify their cars. The 2nd generation Lexus GS300 that gave the automotive world a roomy luxury executive car and boasted comfort and looks with the potential to pack some power and burn some serious rubber. One of the most iconic renditions of this car is that of Japanese Super GT and D1 Grand Prix driver Nobuteru Taniguchi with his vibrant red GS, known in Japan as the Toyota Aristo. As it was one of the few big body sedans in the D1 series, it grabbed attention from fans and contributed to the wave of customization. One of the most popular styles for the GS is the “VIP” look, with aggressive stance, extremely low ride height, and wide high-end wheels featuring a large, polished dish.
Head Turner With the ability to uniquely differentiate yours from any other on the road, just about anything goes with the wide range of aftermarket parts available for the 2nd gen Lexus GS300 today. Body kits, wheels, spoilers complement the exterior of the vehicle while under the hood, special intakes and engine covers are some of the few engine bay components that can be color coordinated for an immaculate look. As for the cabin, the capacity for components such as customized seats, steering wheels, and trim add an infinite number of variations to make your ride truly stand apart from the others.
