Lexus USA has announced the winner of their Lexus IS SEMA design contest — first place goes to Rob Evans with this rendering:
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.
Second place went to Lucia Lee:
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.
Guanghao Huang came in third:
Fully embracing the Lexus spindle grill, the front facia has just the right amount of attitude. The subtle use of color accentuates the lines without overpowering them.
