Anthony Montesano: 2006 Lexus GS430

Anthony Montesano is a fan of the Lexus brand. After purchasing a 2006 Lexus GS430, it didn't take long for Montesano to explore the many different aftermarket parts available to give it his personal touch. With the help of Mike from CVT Designs, Montesano replaced the suspension with an Air Lift Performance package, including air bags over coilovers with a 3P Management system and custom front-upper control arms. Vossen CVT 20-inch wheels wrapped in Toyo tires tuck inside slightly rolled-fenders when Montesano airs-out. The personalizations did stop there; Montesano replaced the front and rear bumpers from a 2012 Lexus IS F and 2014 Lexus GS F (rear), which had to be customized to fit, and then wrapped the entire exterior with satin white pearl vinyl. To complete the build Montesano has plans for a custom interior, big brake kit and custom carbon fiber add-ons.

FAVORITE MODIFICATION
