“Sriracha makes everything hotter.”

 

The luxury car maker shows its light, fun side with a customised version of the 2017 Lexus IS sports sedan: the Lexus Sriracha IS, which debuted at 2016 Los Angeles auto show in November.

In a pleasantly surprising collaboration with Huy Foong Foods (creator of the beloved hot sauce), Lexus spices up custom auto detailing with quirky hints of Sriracha.

The team at West Coast Customs did a fantastic job of “putting Sriracha everywhere” – take a closer look below. (swipe left for more)

The custom paint job comes complete with flecks of chili-like flakes to mimic the sauce, topped with a clear coating that almost makes it seem like you're looking at it through a glass bottle. In keeping to the Huy Fong Foods heritage, touches of green are incorporated in the spindle grille outline...

...and in hand-stitching on the leather seats.
