Lexus has been showing off its new IS sports range at SEMA, but what caught our attention was a little project it’d had going on the side. Partnering up with popular art community site deviantART, it launched a competition to get people to design their own version of the car. Over 600 entries were received and those were whittled down by a panel of judges until just one winner remained. Rob Evans’ vision of the IS was then turned into reality by VIP Auto Salon and revealed to the public at the Las Vegas show. The deep front bumper and bulging arches gave the car an aggressive front end and there was also a carbon interior, special three-piece wheels and a custom satin white paint job to boot.
Fair play to Lexus for making this particular bit of art into reality!
