2021 Lexus RC 350 F Sport
Photographer: Sedric Fort
At 35 years old, I currently reside in El Paso, Texas, after serving as an Army veteran in Germany. During my first military rotation in Germany, where the Autobahn boasts no speed limit, I found myself captivated by the sight of fast exotic cars zooming down the road. Despite only having a 2014 base model Ford Focus, the experience ignited my passion for cars. Attending a car meet in Germany with friends changed my perspective, leading me to explore different models through YouTube videos and conversations with fellow enthusiasts.
Upon concluding my rotation in Germany and relocating to El Paso, Texas, I embarked on my journey with a 2017 Dodge Charger Scat Pack, marking the beginning of my first car build.
The transition from Scat Pack to Lexus RC 350 F Sport
After three years with my Scat Pack Charger, I desired a new direction, opting for a unique and rarely seen car in my area that blended luxury with sportiness. Despite always admiring the Lexus brand, I initially believed it was out of reach. However, when the opportunity presented itself, I seized it, taking my Lexus build in a distinct direction. Steering away from the common VIP style, I chose a custom-made, one-of-a-kind wrap, combined with a bagged suspension and stylish wheels. My goal was to stand out and be a rebel with my build, and I am thrilled with the outcome.
Owning My Dream Car: Lexus RC 350 F Sport
Owning a Lexus is a surreal experience as it represents the fulfilment of my dream. Each time I start the engine and take the wheel, a sense of pride washes over me, appreciating the journey that led to having a car I eagerly drive every day.
Uniqueness in Design of my Lexus RC 350 F Sport
My Lexus stands out with a unique look, thanks to the exceptional work done by Corsa Auto Design (NJ) and Buddy's Body Shop in El Paso, TX. Their contributions to the design showcase my commitment to going above and beyond. When others see my car, it sparks curiosity, and I enjoy seeing fellow enthusiasts incorporating their unique ideas inspired by my build.
