Judge's Comments

This entry has an aggressive design with a bold stance showing IS attitude that stands out. It is almost animated but with just enough realism. It screams SEMA and is an instant eye catcher that will fit right in.

Judge's Comments

Menacing and sleek. This design has amazing aesthetic consistency and a great presence that introduces unique components front to back. It is both conceptual and consistent with the evolution of the IS line.

Judge's Comments

Fully embracing the Lexus spindle grill, the front facia is very bold and has just the right amount of attitude. The subtle use of color accentuates the lines without overpowering them.

After reading a few pages of comments...

I think the order should be reversed. 3rd place to first, 2nd stays, and 1st to third place. Or if these all "broke contest rules," all of them dropped and like Naeomi said [comment], this should have won.

I don't think you know what the term "riced" really means if you think that 1st place is riced. It's simply a wide body kit.

After reading some of the comments, I agree 2nd place should be bumped to first place.. Not because one looks better than the others, but because of the rules stated by the contest.. I refer to item d and e. Those fenders look like the protrude more than 6 inches not sure if tires come in those sizes and not sure if you can makes the tires come out that far without making changes to the mechanical components. Not to mention the functionality of the rear doors... When i first read the contest rules I thought this was paint scheme mainly because of line d and e

i liked the second place more than the first place...i hate that first places wheels stick so far out from the car
even the judges said the second place car was more consistent with the lexus is evolution yet they did not pick it as first? what is that?
third place looked fine but the red lines going through the dull color paint was bothering my eyes
i dont really like lexus that much...its Subaru all the way! Lexus can't handle on and off road like a Subaru can

 People need to stop commenting on the functionality of the cars, especially on the back doors. The point of the contest was not to design a new consumer car, it was to make the equivalent of a concept; something that is eye-catching. Functionality doesn't matter, since no one will really be riding in these cars.

I ike 2nd one for design, but the 3rd one is probably the most comfortable, because of large back doors and consenquently more space in the back. It's a hard choise but I think that 1st one should be in third place.

paint is part of moding... would you rather drive a car with just primer or would you rather drive a car with a badass paint job on it...the paint helps accentuate parts on the car and it makes it very eye catching...thats why a red car is more likely to get pulled over than a white one
plus look up youtube videos of cars at SEMA...a majority of the cars have unique paint jobs that make the car more eye popping
