Lexus Eastern, RS-R & Vossen Collaborate to enhance their amazing new 2015 RC F and NX 200t F-Sport.

Earlier in the year the team at Lexus Eastern decided to use the all new RC F and NX 200t on the show and meet circuit to showcase these amazing new vehicles and some modifications they support. Having a great relationship with Lexus, we linked up to provide some insight on these modifications and of course wheels! We both agreed that a lowered suspension would enhance the look & performance of these already aggressive looking cars and called our good friend Ben Chong at RS-R who flew out to Lexus to do some final R&D work.

Working closely with Jonathan Linn & Ben Roget at Lexus Eastern, the Lexus vehicles were now ready to debut right in time for summer! First up, the all new comparison winning Lexus NX 200t, now lowered on RS-R “down” springs and our Flow Forged VFS-2 Wheels in an all new size, 21×9!

Wrapped in Pirelli Tires sized I personally think the 21″ wheel is just the right size for the NX and the lowered ride height really makes this NX look absolutely splendid.

Next up, the powerful RC F sport coupe. As we were first to help modify the RC F with the groundbreaking “Instabuilt” car last year, we have developed a very close relationship with this particular car, including our very own KJ owning one and the Imporfest Rocket Bunny cars.

In addition I happen to be driving one now and it is one soulful, fun to drive car. The V-8 sound alone is worth the price of admission! Here Lexus Eastern was the first to have the refreshed CV3-R on the RC F in 20×9 and 20×10.5 sizes.

With it also lowered on RS-R “down” springs, the classic 5 spoke design of the CV3-R makes this beautiful car even more head turning. Tire sizes are 255/30/20 and 285/30/20.

For the shoot, the team decided to use New York City in the background while also capturing some nice additional scenery on a beautiful sunny day.

Thanks to Lexus Eastern for the opportunity to work with them and we can’t wait to work on the next tantalizing new Lexus project!
