At the LA Auto Show, Lexus is celebrating the launch of the 2017 Lexus IS sports sedan with the debut of a special custom one-off, the Sriracha IS. Billed as the hottest Lexus ever, the design pays homage to the beloved sauce made by Huy Fong Foods. The special modifications, courtesy of West Coast Customs, include a custom paint job -- including chili-like flecks -- mirroring the sauce itself, with bright green accents on the spindle grille, mirrors, brake calipers, and exhaust tips as a nod to the Sriracha bottle. A Sriracha-injected steering wheel , temperature settings that go from cool to Sriracha, and a trunk stocked with 43 bottles of the hot sauce round out the details. The Lexus Sriracha IS will be on display at the LA Auto Show from Nov. 18–27 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
