Lexus IS Design contest winner to be built for SEMA 2013Thu, 15 Aug 2013 00:00:00 -0700
Somewhere in the shortlist of 25 semi-finalists from the Lexus IS Design contest lurks the design that will be built by tuner VIP Auto Salon and take pride of place on Lexus' stand at SEMA later this year.
Hosted by online art community deviantART, the competition asked entrants to customize a Lexus IS saloon using any method they liked.
The winner will also be given a one-year lease of the IS and other prizes. The second and third-placed participants along with the 22 other competitors will receive a three-month premium membership to deviantART, 2,000 deviantART points and a Lexus Slim Master Hardcover Notebook.
The winning design will be chosen after voting from an unnamed judging panel.
