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.
Once again LaFerrari is the victim of my work and one again in a more aggressive way, this time not a track only version but an extreme hypercar designer for road and track and for a future FIA GT1 championship.
