Arrow Pics: Slammed Lexus LS430

Was waiting to collect my car after getting it's second service done and this just came in.

Just out of the docks, completely covered in dust and with a dead battery. The soon to be badged Lexus LS430 (as it is actually badged a Toyota), complete with huge Lorinser alloys, complete exhaust work and lowered suspension. Looked wicked sitting there, and the sound was terrific too (once they jump her to life!), mellow, deep but not a harsh tone.

Who's gonna be the lucky owner? No idea, but here are a few pics anyways.

Awesome pics RT. The wheels suit the car well and it certainly has the "Turn Heads" look.

This car looks like one of those straight out of the music videos

This car is a MAMMOTH!! Awesome and sweet pictures Rtech.

The beauty of this car really is that its an extremely luxurious car made by Toyota i.e. You wont find the problems and heavy maintenance/expensive bills associated with Mercedes.

It sure as hell appeals to me. And the white colour with the lowered stance is spot on.

I travelled in one of these when I was in US (I think it was an earlier version of this car). Blame me for overlooking the model. I was enjoying the luxury of the car. My boss had 2 of them (Same model but different colors). But later sold one of them.

As far as I know, I guess its up for sale. It'll probably be sitting outside Choksi's soon, if its not already there.

Why Choksi's? coz this was at the Autobahn service center, and we know who owns Autobahn!

well see properly they are way different. its nothing compared to the wheel in my avatar! the one in my avatar is an AMG wheel, and the one above is a Lorinser wheel.

AMG WHEEL


Lorinser Wheel


and talking about that Lorinser wheel, the quality looks like an Aura Alloy Wheel!!

Yes, LS430 is one brilliant car but this one loses the plot completley. I don't even know where to start criticising it, its just ghastly.
