The culmination of Lexus‘s DeviantArt design challenge, winner Rob Evans’ take on the 2014 Lexus IS 350 F Sport was unveiled at this year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Built by VIP Auto Salon, the special creation incorporates a significantly wider and more badass body kit – based on Evans’ original sketches – with enormous wheel arches alongside 20″ Nutek rims equipped with Nitto Invo tires, Brembo brakes, and a massive rear diffuser. Inside sit Takata Racing Drift Pro LE seats with carbon fiber trim appearing throughout the cabin. Since Lexus hasn’t released details of what exactly powers the concept vehicle, one can assume the Lexus IS 350 F Sport includes its standard 3.5-liter V6 engine – capable of 306 bhp, 277 lb-ft of torque, acceleration from 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds, and a top speed of 143 mph. Evans’ concept was crafted in just over two months’ time and was selected as the winning design amongst 25 total finalists.
