The new GS platform was introduced last year to universal acclaim. The GS 300 and 400 are regarded as serious sedan performers that are equally at home on a windy road or the cosmetically conscious boulevards of Beverly Hills. With a winning blend of style, sophistication, and raw speed, it was only a matter of time before the aftermarket pounced on the GS. One of the companies that responded to this call was Han Auto Trends in Monterey Park, California. Han immediately set to work building the goods that could satisfy even the most discriminating Lexus owner.
Aerodynamic considerations aside, the main allure behind the purchase of a body kit is that it complement the cars original shape and design. The sleek shape of the Supra may call for a combat wing and wide grille bumper, but this wont fly with the Lexus lover. Yet some of the current GS kits weve seen arent enough of a departure from the mind-numbingly conformist stock look. Hans revolution kit looks hot enough to satiate the MTV crowd, while not appearing obscenely out of place in the country club parking lot.
This kit is constructed of fiberglass, and it comes with a sharp trunk wing, front bumper, side skirts, and a rear bumper, which can accommodate the wicked-looking revolution quad-tip after-cat exhaust system. The body kit costs $2,590 ($750 for Version I Exhaust), which is not a bad price to pay for some truly revolutionary style. Han Auto Trends, Dept.
