Lexus IS 350 - Tennis Ball Fuzz

Yes, we know that this our first Miscellaneous Thoughts post for the week and it’s already Wednesday. We were taking a bit easy on Monday during Labor Day and were recouping most of Tuesday. Either way, we’re all back here and are working our butts off to bring you the latest automotive news updates (and a lot of its pouring out with the Frankfurt Motor Show just days away). Either way, it’s that time of the day for us to gather up some random findings from around the Internet. So here we go…

Lexus IS 350 gets fuzzy or the U.S. Open: Lexus is known for creating sports-themed cars – and we mean literally. Earlier this year at the U.S. Open of golf, Lexus revealed golf-ball dimpled Lexus LS. During the U.S. Open for tennis going on these days, Lexus is displaying a Lexus IS with a fuzzy tennis-ball exterior. Imagine getting that car dirty. – KickingTires
