For its sixth apperance at the the SEMA show in Las Vegas, Lexus brought three customised cars. They are the “New Project LS 460 F Sport” by Five Axis, “Supercharged GS 350 F Sport” by VIP Auto Salon and the IS FCCS-R race car. They were joined by the brand’s LFA supercar and sleek LF-CC concept, the latter fresh from its Paris 2012 debut.

The souped up LS 460 F Sport (launched in Malaysia last month) by Five Axis adds even more visual muscle and styling impact, with a full aero body kit, 22-inch custom wheels with Yokohama Advan Sport tyres, Air Runner TC-5 air suspension a matte silver paint finish with grey accents. This interpretation is described as “no-holds-barred”.

Younger brother GS returns to SEMA with a VIP Auto Salon makeover. Performance is raised with an Apexi CG SPL custom supercharger kit, high-performance Brembo brakes and Vossen CV7 20-inch wheels. The styling package is by Wald International.

Completing the picture is the IS FCCS-R race car that conquered the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb earlier this year in Colorado, where it secured a second-in-class result on its debut (click here to read our live Pikes Peak report). Powered by a standard 416 bhp 5.0-litre V8 engine, this competition special features carbon fibre bodywork elements, 18-inch SSR wheels, racing brakes and a special exhaust system.
