Lexus is represented at the 2019 SEMA show through the custom cars, SUVs and trucks that professional and amateur builders bring to display, often in conjunction with the aftermarket companies who have supplied components to the vehicles.
That can mean anything from air suspension for a slammed RC F to a rooftop tent for an off-road-ready GX 460, the large Lexus SUV that’s sold in North America. Check out the magic of SEMA 2019 in our gallery.
SEMA 2019: LC 500 by Liberty Walk
A wide-body kit from cult Japanese tuner Liberty Walk adorns this all-black LC 500. It was displayed in the Toyo Tyres Treadpass area between two of the halls, where some of the most memorable cars at the show have made their debuts in recent years.
SEMA 2019: GX 460 by Yakima
Cargo accessories specialist Yakima fitted out this brand-new but modified GX 460 with gear including a platform rack, rooftop-mounted awning, bike rack and jerrycan holder. It was displayed in a new area of the show dedicated to the growing trend in overlanding: adventure travel to remote locations where the journey itself is the primary goal.
