Showing off Toyo Tires’ Proxes C1S rubber was a Lexus IS-F sporting a very innovative vinyl wrap. From far the car looked to be a matte silver, but up close the wrap has a brushed aluminum theme. Another interesting piece to this IS-F was the Hamann styling. Famous for tuning European automobiles, it seems as if Hamann has taken a liking to the Japanese market. It only makes sense, as many more European tuners are turning towards the Japanese vehicles and Japanese tuners are turning towards European vehicles.
