Hope your New Year is filled with success, health, prosperity and happiness.
Happy New Year!
We attended Extreme Autofest with our friends at Airrunner this year. We enjoy this event very much because there is a big mix of cars from DUB, Lowriders, Import Tuners, Exotics, Luxury, Trucks, Vans, and everything in between. It makes for a very diverse and fun show. We are happy to say that our Lexus LS460 won an award and Airrunner did to in the Best Toyota Category and Best Lexus GS category. Big congrats to all the winners and big thanks to everyone who came out to support us. Until next time!
Our LS460 project demo car began in 2013 as a 2010 Sport Package equipped model in Starfire Pearl white paint. Our goal was to build the car for the SEMA show that year. The car was outfitted with the Aimgain JUN VIP body kit with front fenders, roof and trunk spoilers. We also went with the Aimgain 21″ G-Luxe wheels and Airrunner On the Ground air suspension system.
After a successful year of touring several California, Las Vegas, and Arizona car shows, the 2014 SEMA Show was around the corner. We were honored with the opportunity to take the car again, so the next phase began. We decided on a full custom PINK wrap with dark gray accents. Much of our inspiration came from the new Toyota Crown Hybrid that was offered in pink from the factory.
Once again, after a year long successful show tour, we had the privilege of returning to the SEMA Show for a third year in a row. This time, we went with the biggest transformation yet. We took on the task of attempting and completing the first 2013+ full exterior conversion. Although there are many fine examples in Japan of 07-12 LS460s converted to 2013, there were none, as far as we knew, in North America. To top off the conversion, we decided to have it re-wrapped in a beautiful custom Satin Nero wrap with pink accents.
As you can see, the 2013+ conversion completely transforms the car, it is hard to believe that it is the same car from 2014. Aside from the Aimgain JUN VIP GT body kit which consists of the front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper, front fenders, roof, trunk and hood spoiler, all other parts are OEM.
You can refer to VIPCAR Magazine VOL. 213 December 2013 for the exterior comparisons below.

-Bottom Door Chrome Trim
-Door Side Mirrors (Not converted on our car)
-Bumper w/ bracket “AIMGAIN”
-License Plate Garnish

There is a lot more information and details about the build that meets the eye so stay tuned! To be continued..
