PCNY modifies a daily driven Lexus LFA with over 30,000 miles on the odometer on our Vossen Forged VPS-305T wheels.

In the business of “Good People”…I think Wayne’s comment in the video below resonated with me because he is absolutely right. Good people in business are the foundation to amazing relationships, amazing outcomes and amazing experiences. We can promote all of the most amazing cars and wheels in the world but it all begins with Good People.

To his point, we originally wanted to shoot a white Lexus LFA Nurburgring edition but understandably it will remain in a museum. Enter Wayne (good people) and PCNY who I just happened to meet a couple of weeks earlier through John at Lou La Vie (good people). He calls me to say he is going to drive a LFA from NYC to LA for a track event. When I asked when was he leaving, he said today lol.

Since I also happen to be the forum administrator for the Lexus Enthusiast, I spoke to Kevin Watts (good people) and knew this was a unique opportunity to track the car real time to share with our forum members. You can see the thread here as Wayne text me pics of his entire trip!

Since the car was on the West Coast and we wanted to showcase some cars outside the Mandarin Oriental for our #vossenskylounge some “good people” came together. PCNY and @Trade_Coin (the owner of the LFA & also Good People) decided to wrap the car matte black and it needed to be done in time for SEMA.

Clark at VIP Auto Salon (good people) got Harry at Nitto (good people) involved who supplied new tires as well as transport. Clark had to drive 60 miles one way and back to get the tires and then get the Vossen Forged VPS-305T wheels ready for the LFA. This happened the weekend before SEMA and by Monday the car was on the way to Vegas!

The combination of the satin black matte wrap and satin bronze Vossen Forged VPS-305T wheels really gives the car a “Mad Max” look, especially when we shot on location in the Las Vegas desert. Driving around the city, the car broke necks everywhere we went and the one of a kind exhaust sound gave grins wherever we were. Sized 20×9.5 and 20×12 on sticky Nitto tires, the LFA in our eyes has never looked better.

For SEMA week it was used as a highlight vehicle for Vossen and PCNY and even used as transport for our VIP clients. The best part? Getting the chance to drive my dream car throughout Las Vegas and hearing that engine sound inside the cabin. It was an experience I will never forget and all this came together because of “Good People”.
