2019 Lexus ES Custom Concept Has A Wine Cellar In Its Trunk

Lexus is bringing five custom concepts to this year’s SEMA Show, but two of them aren’t exactly new.

If you followed our coverage of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this summer, you’ll recognize two of the five cars that Lexus will have on display in Las Vegas.

One of them is the LC 500 Inspiration Concept and the other is the 2019 Lexus UX 250h Custom study. With that out of the way, let’s see what the three truly new custom concepts are about.

Custom 2019 Lexus ES 350 F Sport

The star of Lexus’ 2018 SEMA Show booth is undoubtedly the ES sedan, mainly because it’s the brand’s newest model to get a custom interpretation. That’s not the only reason, though. Open the trunk and you’ll notice this is a car for… wine lovers.

The cargo area houses a wine refrigerator, custom oak flooring, and frames, as well as racks for wine bottles and glasses. Rounding off the wine-themed trunk are the refinished Oak barrel accents.

With the trunk lid closed, the car looks pretty normal. It features a custom Signature Metallic Red exterior paint, an Artisan Spirit body kit, and 20-inch RAYS wheels shod with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. While the styling changes might make it to production, the wine cabinet certainly won’t.

Custom 2018 Lexus LS 500 F Sport

The second exhibit is a custom Lexus LS that sports an Avery Denison full body wrap, 22-inch black Work wheels, and an extensive aero kit by Artisan Spirit.
The aggressive looks are backed by a lowered suspension and gloss black elements.

The luxury sedan also packs a performance Brembo brake kit. It consists of 6-piston front, 4-piston rear slotted rotors, with a diameter of 15.9 inches (403.8 mm) at the front and 15 inches (381 mm) at the rear.

2019 Lexus RC 350 F Sport Cross Country Custom

Finally, the RC 350 custom study is a work in progress. To mark the coupe’s recent restyling, Lexus has embarked on a customization road trip that began in Miami and will end at the LA Auto Show next month.

At the SEMA Show, Lexus will showcase the modifications the car received in Miami. Those include the 20-inch Vossen Hybrid Forged HF-1 wheels in Gloss Black, Nitto NT 555 G2 tires, RS-R USA down springs, Apexi N1-X Evolution Extreme Muffler, and Race Sport Rock Light. Rounding off the changes is the Avery Satin Rushing Riptide wrap.

      you are absolutely right, I totally agree with you, both are stupid, but the most stupid of all, is using Caps Lock all the time.

    • Craig

      I agree MICHGO. And for the record – I have no problem with your ALL CAPS comments.

      LOL! I AGREE!

    For a moment I hoped the wine cellar option would be made available in France.

    Quick takes: That LC interior is pretty cool. Love the blue color on the UX. The LS looks great. What’s up with the 90’s blue under-car lighting on the RC?
