Car Show Gallery: Lexus Represents at Formula DRIFT Streets of Long Beach
Plumes of tire smoke reaching for the skies like the water fountains at the Bellagio — deafening engines getting the Harlem Globe Trotter dribble off the rev limiter — Formula DRIFT’s 90-mph tail-out action is more than mesmerizing … it’s life-changing … and then there are the show cars. Finger-licking good.
The LS 460 you see here is not only custom, it’s a 2014 SEMA/NUROTAG show car. Forum member MrMark owns it.
One thing I love about fellow car enthusiasts, such as you lovely people, is that they enjoy automobiles so much that they’ll modify any of them to make them more unique. It doesn’t matter what kind of vehicle it is, either. Customizers will tweak sports cars, crossovers, trucks, and SUVs – even big-bodied sedans, too.
Real Car Reviews really wants you to know that this is not Matt Farah’s Million Mile Lexus LS400, but it is now officially a classic.
Back in 1990, Lexus only sold the ES250, which was based on the then-current Toyota Camry, and the LS400, its rival to the big four-doors from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Cadillac. Had that latter car been a dud, I probably wouldn’t be writing this on this site right now.
