VIDEO: SEMA 2014 x Vossen x Lexus

Written by

Vossen Wheels teamed up with Lexus and VIP Auto Salon to showcase the #instabuilt 2015 Lexus RC F. Fans all over the world voted on the @LexusUSA Instagram page to create a RC F they wanted to see debut at SEMA in the Vossen booth. Over the course of two weeks selections were made and Clark Ishihara, CEO of VIP Auto Salon, was tasked with building the RC F in less than four weeks based on the winning selections in regards to; color, wheels, brakes, suspension, bodykit, exhaust, seats, steering wheel. Fans chose the directional design and Vossen decided to exceed their expectations by building a custom set of our lightweight forged Vossen Precision Series "311" wheels specifically for the RC F measuring 20x9 in front and 20x10.5 in the rear in graphite. They even built a set of miniature "311" wheels for the mini RC Fradio controlled car! The RC F debuted Tuesday to much fanfare in our exclusive Lexus centric booth for SEMA 2014. We showcased an all white theme except for the "Seafoam" Green RC F. Other Lexus vehicles featured in our booth.

Throwback: Kim Kardashian

Written by
Before Kim Kardashian was “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” dating Kanye West or pregnant with North West, she graced the cover of our Issue 45, flaunting her notorious assets and her custom Range Rover by Platinum Motorsports.



The bombshell beauty gave us the inside scoop on her early beginnings and her (then) emerging television career. And since she compared her childhood to a fairytale, the reality TV princess showed off her chariot of choice – a “pretty in pink” 2007 Range Rover Supercharged. The white Range featured a customized pink and white Strut Grille, pink Brembo brake calipers, pink Range Rover emblems and pink “princess” logos on the wheel’s center caps. The 2007 Range Rover features a 400HP V8 engine, customized pink-and-white Strut grille, pink Brembo brake calipers, pink Ranger Rover emblems and even pink “princess” logos on the wheel’s center caps. Two JL Audio 500/1, one 300/4 amps, two 12-inch W6-V2 subwoofers, and two pairs of 6.5-inch component speakers keep things knockin’.



Platinum Motorsport wrapped 24x10” Platinum PT15 wheels in Cooper Zeon XST 295/35R24 tires and also provided Kim’s pink Range with a fully customized exhaust system. She enjoyed her favorite tunes (probably opting for Kanye West jams, who was just a friend then) on a modified audio system that boasted two JL Audio 500/1 and one 300/4 amps, two 12” W6-V2 subs and two pairs of 6.5” component speakers.



Platinum Motorsport also dressed up her 2007 Bentley Flying Spur with a full Mansory body kit, which included a front spoiler with an integrated air grille, rear spoiler, side and rear skirts and an exhaust system with a Platinum Motorsport lowering module. The fenders were properly filled with 22x9.5” front and 22x10.5” rear Lowenhart LT8 Diamond Noir/Chrome multi-piece wheels wrapped in Continental ContiSportContact 2 265/30R22 front and 295/25R22 rear tires.
