Autotrader Find: Heavily Customized 2001 Lexus GS 300

When you think of a used Lexus sedan, you probably think of a practical car. Something that’s a good value and sensible, comfortable transportation. Today’s Autotrader find is a used Lexus not quite like any other. This 2001 Lexus GS 300 has been heavily modified and transformed into almost a completely different car.

No Ordinary GS

Let’s start with the exterior. This Lexus GS has a green paint job, big chrome wheels that appear to have spinners, and even Lamborghini-style scissor doors on the front. That’s just the beginning. This GS also has a rear spoiler and a body kit all the way around that gives the car a bigger, bolder, lower look.

The modifications continue on the inside, but not to such a crazy degree. There’s a Panasonic head unit with a screen that folds out. There are also not one, not two, but three screens in the back. There’s one in the back of each of the front headrests plus a third one that folds down. These are presumably for when you have three people riding in the back of your Lexus and all three of them want to watch something different. In the trunk, there is what appears to be an air suspension tank and a pair of amplifiers.

What About Under the Hood?

Unfortunately, the listing doesn’t specify whether there are any mechanical modifications to this Lexus. Although there are no photos of the engine bay, we think it’s safe to assume that this GS is powered by its original 3.0-liter “2JZ” inline-six engine. In stock form, the 2001 Lexus GS makes 220 horsepower and 220 lb-ft of torque.

However, this specific car isn’t really about performance. It’s clearly a lot more about the aesthetic. It may be a bit weird, but we think it’s a great way to have a practical daily driver that will also turn a lot of heads. You get the reliability of a Lexus and the fun-to-drive nature of a GS while also having stand-out looks and quirky features like scissor doors.

Did we mention that the asking price for his car is only $9,995? That makes it one of the most interesting cars you’ll find on Autotrader with a four-digit price tag. It also only has 27,867 miles on the clock meaning it’s barely even broken in by Lexus standards. It’s up for grabs at Jordan Auto Sales in Cincinnati, Ohio, and ready for a driver who likes to stand out in a crowd. Find a Lexus GS for sale
