Matte Mint Lexus IS Looks Refreshing!

Matte Mint Lexus IS 0 600x400 at Matte Mint Lexus IS Looks Refreshing!

Everybody agrees that mint is the nature’s most refreshing flavor. It also goes with everything. It makes your food taste better and your cocktail more zingy. But nobody said that it should be limited to edible stuff. I mean here we have a mint car, and it has the same effect on your eyes that a mint gum has on your tongue!

The matte mint Lexus IS is the work of Impressive Wrap, known for their love of weird and interesting colors. This unique greenish color is actually a shade of blue called Tiffany Blue, and it works great when teamed with carbon fiber aero parts such as the front spoiler and rear diffuser, and the blacked-out roof.

The matte mint wrap also fits the character of the Lexus IS, which to be frank is a weird looking car, what with those headlights and that massive grille. The whole thing looks like a popsicle now. You just want to bite it!
