This is my concept that I feel evokes confidence in a thought of never blending in. The theme and title is "ISTANDOUT" that was designed to highlight the 2014 Lexus IS 250 F Sport exterior features while carefully choosing modifications that is executable within the 10-week build period.
Design Notes: - A Teal Blue with Gloss Black 2-tone paint scheme following the lines and accentuating the contours of the body. No Body Kit needed. - Custom Fender vents achieved with an IS-F -inspired cut in the Factory OEM fenders. - Lowered stance via an Air Suspension System that can adjust the ride height accordingly. - Blacked-out all the chrome parts and trims. - Big Brake kit with Calipers painted to match the Teal Blue body. - Split 5-spoke wheel designed finished in Gloss Black with Teal Blue pinstripe.
Additional Notes: - Created in Photoshop CS5 - Base Lexus IS 250 F Sport images from the provided asset were used and modified. - My own photograph of the wheels were used and modified. - Background elements were created 100% from scratch.
As someone who had attended SEMA since 1996, as well as designed cars for it, this was a challenge I couldn't pass up.
As a second year transportation design student, I utilized my understanding of vehicle construction to provide a cohesive, thematic design which will draw attention from design aficionados and the counter-culture demographic. An executable design within the build period was emphasized during the design process.
Lexus brand DNA was strongly incorporated into the design, along with visual cues from the Lexus inspirational film.
