This custom-built Lexus Sriracha IS inspired car is showered with many unique styling cues. But, the most noteworthy are certainly the paint job. It gets Sriracha sauce color body paint and then clears coating is applied afterward. As a result, the car looks like a bottle full of Sriracha sauce.
The same treatment also goes to the steering wheel. Some part of the steering wheel is made of resin container that is filled with liquid that looks like Sriracha sauce. And to make sure you will never forget how hot this car is, a “Hot Handling” warning is embedded in the steering wheel. To make the vehicle looks like Huy Fong’ Sriracha, the grille gets the green outline that symbolizes the bottle cap of the Sriracha sauce. Furthermore, it also gets hand painted caliper, custom badging and side view mirror with chrome accents.
Inside, the hot Lexus Sriracha IS vibe can be seen from the custom temperature setting that goes from ‘cool’ to ‘Sriracha hot,’ handcrafted seat with hand stitching. And also, the iconic Huy Fong Rooster logo and mood lighting in the cabin.
A Sriracha inspired car will not suffice without the real Sriracha sauced, right? Well, now go to the rear side, open the trunk, and you definitely will be surprised with 43 bottles of Sriracha sauce that fill up the trunk. It even comes with the key fob that can dispense sauce.
