Upper Crust // Vincent’s Lexus IS on iForged
“Our team first met Edbert W at the GENESIS Car Show. His red VIP Odyssey won the title of Hellaflush’s most favorite car that day. A US graduate currently residing in Bogor, he’s going to contribute in both writings and photographies to our site. His first submission is this Lexus IS owned by his fellow Indonesian friend, Vincent. With such wonderful captures done by Jordan Mo, this air bagged affluent sedan has gotten all the right treatments it deserved.” (Fredyka)
Lexus IS has always been quite a rare sight in Indonesia but in the United States it’s a different story. It is one of the most commonly found entry-level luxury sedan, especially in California. Sure enough when on one roll by, Vincent immediately fell in love with the designs and looks of the car. Even I have to admit that it is one sexy looking car with its curvy lines combining the best of sporty looks and luxurious trims.
Being a luxury car, Vincent wanted it to be elegant and clean looking. The mod bug bit him initially through aftermarket wheels and everything started snowballing from there.
Of course, you can’t properly pronounce elegance without an air suspension system. Vincent doesn’t just use them to park hard, but, as you can see from the pictures, he’s been using them to roll hard too. Aiming to get that clean charming look, he decided to install a set of Wald body kit that complimented the lines of the car in a very proper manner.
I actually had an opportunity to do a photoshoot for the car some time ago and, oh boy, what a fine ride it is in person. Looking quite subtle at first sight but revealing so many exquisite details as you come closer. Vincent had surely built one of the best looking Lexus IS around.
