well then the person at Lexus in charge of the contest should be demoted, for the least scolded heavily about the turnaround time for making the contest winners submittal a reality...knowing the way graphic designers will add to its original form, to leave just 30-days for this to complete the vehicle is absurd and complete oversight by, I would assume, the marketing team at Lexus.

This is a billion dollar company, known for quality and refinement, amongst many other things. I remember when door/panel space gapping was a huge deal within Lexus and did heavy refining to lessen those spaces...so attention to detail along those lines are what I expect at ALL levels from Lexus, especially something they plan to promote on such a scale. SEMA, probably the best auto event for the year, and this is the end result in which VIP delivers?

Thanks so much !

My husband RMMGS4 and I just got back from SEMA last night.

Thanks to all the new people we met and thanks to all the old friends we saw.

And a special thanks to Lexus Corporate for giving us the opportunity to rep our 1st Gen IS.

Since my first post on CL 10 years ago, this has been an amazing experience !

Absolutely, the judges need to get their eyes check. The 2nd one is far superior in every way. It actually flows and looks OEM almost Panamera-esque in profile. Stunning. Rather they choose something that was easier to make and looks tacked on

It was a pleasure meeting you and hanging with Glenn again as well as so many true Lexus enthusiasts at SEMA as well as Lexus themselves who were gracious hosts at their booth. It was an exciting time and it was great to see various Lexus models throughout the show.

The Job Design LS arriving late Friday was amazing.

Here is the rendering…to me it was like a DTM racer...

The judges obviously could have picked an easier build but I have to commend them for going for something really exciting and outlandish which Lexus clearly is shooting for as of late. Of course a lot of people didn't like it but it was a courageous build in 30 days. Maybe I'm biased as the builder and I chatted (as we had our own mild build) and both went through a worrying process to have things ready for SEMA. Our mild build barely was finished, I could not imagine doing this.

Some pics from the show….
