This widebody build takes the Lexus RC-F up to an 11/10

With a widebody kit and an awesome wrap, this RC-F really sets the bar.

These days when I think of Lexus I think of essentially rebadged Toyota Avalons, Land Cruisers, and CH-Rs (See Lexus ES, GX, and UX) with somewhat better styling, sportier engines, and a higher price tag. They command respect but they don't tend to drop jaws when they drive by.

The exceptions to that observation are the RC and the LC, two beautiful and bespoke Lexus models that look fantastic and have great performance. Lexus recently introduced an RC-F Track edition, with a 5.0L V8 and a sizable carbon fiber rear wing. That RC-F may be impressive, but this custom one looks even better.

This insane car was envisioned by Dana Balthasar, a Southern California based car enthusiast. What's crazy to me is that this build started less than ONE MONTH after he bought the car in June of 2017. Naturally, the first modification was a Rocket Bunny widebody kit, followed by a huge rear wang. Then came the Armytrix exhaust and an air-lift kit. The icing on the cake was a set of Toyo tires, new wheels, and a new wrap. The car went from sporty daily driver to a full-blown SEMA build in just 4 short months.

After 2 years with the mystichrome-colored wrap, Dana received a sponsorship from FlexShield Paint Protection Film and had his car rewrapped and paint protected for SEMA 2019. I personally like this new wrap more than the old one and I love all of its little details. From the the red grille outline to the red rear diffuser to the red and yellow rear wing, I think this wrap fits this car really well.

Overall I love the look of this build. It's extremely aggressive yet not overdone. The big wing and splitter match the widebody kit, and the wrap is detailed without being too busy. If I had an RC-F I don't think I'd do much different. Great job Dana!
