Past overdue is an understatement. We’ve known about Platinum VIP for awhile but the stars never aligned for a proper shop visit. Our first exposure to Platinum was through a mutual friend and longtime OG to the scene, John Tan of Crashed Car fame. John was launching his newest calendar project under T-pub LA and one of the cars within his calendar just so happened to be a Platinum car – shop owner, Kennedy Nguyen’s white VIP-styled Lexus LS. Well, we contacted Kennedy on our annual trip to Los Angeles and the rest is what you see before you. A welcome visit and some pics of their perfectionist work.
Just one of the shop’s flagship rides – The Job Design Lexus Aristo. Pictures don’t do this car justice. The custom-mixed White Pearl plays so many tricks to your eyes as it changes its hue at different angles. Don’t let the aesthetics fool you. Under the hood is a godzilla-sized turbo ready to suck in victims.
This clean black Lexus LS sits on their in-house “Phantom Cup Kit” coil/air hybrid suspension. We love how this car lays frame like nobody’s business.
Although Platinum specializes in VIP-themed vehicles, they can also properly fit anything including this dope S13 180sx.
We’d like to thank Kennedy and the crew at Platinum VIP for showing us love. Check out Platinum VIP if you’re ever in the SoCal area and let them know we sent ya!
