As the name suggests, the Ruby Red Rims model of the Lexus RX features wheels with solid aluminum backs and gloss-sealed glitter that lights up using LEDs. These wheels are incredibly large, filling the wheel arches of the RX. The center caps are shaped after a ruby core. These wheels also feature several helical-shaped fins that dissipate the light, which changes colors while driving.

Are there any other unique features to the Ruby Red Rims RX?

This special one-off 2023 Lexus RX includes a customer livery with a red-painted front and black-painted rear, using a fading effect to the paint. This gives the RX an amazing look that certainly gives it an eye-catching style that will turn some heads.

This specially-designed luxury SUV also takes inspiration from two signature hats in Reed’s 2023 Spring collection. This attractive Lexus appeared at W Magazine’s 50th-anniversary party in New York and will show up at various fashion events over the next several months.
