To keep the ball rolling on the VIP hill, I want to share Vincent Shu’s LS 400. There are so many details and nuances when looking at a VIP car, we often forget about the foundation of what makes a car a true VIP. Although this LS can’t quite scale the modification heights of our last feature, it still boasts a smooth blend of aggressiveness and class. Which often times is overshadowed by the numbers game and what accessories the car is dressed in.

This LS is a hybrid of daily driving functionality and aggressiveness. Built to perform under daily driven conditions and to also shine under the lights. The black leather interior, flanked by the Juntion Produce pillows, and a clean white fusa hints of elegance that is refreshing in the age of utterly destroying one’s interior with custom printed liners and fabric.

Shoes of choice are Fabulous Profound wheels 19×9 -14 front and 19×10 – 21 rears. The beams are quad-projectors consisting of LS460 retrofits with STi clear lens, FX35 retrofit with color mod, clear turn signals, and custom 55w projectors on all 4 eyes.

Overall, one of the main reasons this community is flourishing so well is that the people that support it have such an open mind, but perhaps once in a while we should be more open-minded about appreciating a clean, purpose built car? You decide.

junction produce neckpad
