SEMA 2009: Lexus IS 350C by VIP Auto Salon and Jtuned

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2009

After we saw the Lexus IS C F-Sport by TRD, another tuner has decided to bring to us another customized IS C for the SEMA Show. VIP Auto Salon, an aftermarket parts manufacturer, and the Japanese car enthusiast website JTuned worked on the car that they now call the Matador Red IS C. Before this announcement, a report about Fox Marketing's bright green top IS C had come out.

VIP Auto Salon and JTuned delivered a unique version. What sets it apart from the rest of the crowd of Lexus IS convertibles at the show will be a carbon fiber hood, carbon fiber trunk spoiler, high performance exhaust and a set of custom wheels and tires to round out the tuner transformation.

Those who are interested to purchase one of these Matador Red IS Cs must be able to dish out about $15,000 on top of the sticker price. The delivery will actually be made a month and a half later due to the intricacy of the labor for this vehicle.

Furthermore, we find Work Gnosis GS3 MDB finish with Hankook Tires Ventus V12, Down Force, Inc. carbon fiber lip kit, eye lines and trunk spoiler, Seibon carbon fiber hood, matte black emblems, grille and mirror trim and Black leather accents supplied by Katzkin with stitching by Coach Auto Style.
