1999 Lexus GS 400 – Baller is a term thrown around when somebody has an expensive watch, a wad of cash, or has something that most people couldn’t afford in general. After seeing James Church’s Lexus, I can officially call him a baller. James’ project began with a very healthy luxury car best known for carrying executives from their country homes to their high rise offices in the city. The question arose on how to make an already special luxury car into something that nobody else has.

The GS received a full exterior make over with a Vertex style kit, shaved rear wing, JDM Toyota Aristo HID’s, Wise LED tails and some very exclusive Junction Produce fenders, pin stripe and windshield banner. To top off the exterior and make it complete a new coat of KH3 Super black paint was applied to the entire car including color matching engine panels. The entire VIP look is topped off with a set of 19 x 8.5 Work Euroline S2H with a minor tire stretch at 225/35/19.

The interior of the GS is where the actual artwork takes place. The trunk is occupied by an intricate air bag suspension system which includes 2 polished tanks, 8 valves and 2 Air Zenith compressors. The trunk was also wrapped in velvet and a series of TV’s and lights for a full show display. The Lexus also received some work in the main cabin with Leather seats, Junction Produce Fusa and very cool Anceltion Rear Curtains.

Intuned Online would like to recognize ballers everywhere but we may not have the time, but as a start we will congratulate James and his very envious GS 400.
