World Finals Soundfest Champion: Paul Adams' 2008 Lexus GS460

Paul Adams has always had a thing for big body reliable sedans, and had already built a Lexus GS300 before he started his 2008 Lexus GS460 build. Having been around the car audio scene since the late 1990s, it was only natural progression that the GS460 ended up with a quality audio system.

With an emphasis on a stealth install that maintained his vehicle’s practicality, the system is damn near invisible from inside the cabin. Today, he competes in MECA’s Street Class.
