Carbon Lexus IS by MatinyComics Carbon Lexus IS by MatinyComics
Based off the chrome + carbon cars of Burnout Paradise, this vehicle has suicide doors, underglow, chrome sections, and a large sunroof. It's a carbon fiber paint job, not actual fibers.
I finished just in time.

i love carbon fiber but i think having it on the every part of the car except the front bumper and back bumper is a little excessive... i used carbon fiber on just the hood, mirrors, roof fins, and only part of the back bumper.
then with not having the carbon fiber on the doors u could put a cool design there 
also some modding could have been done to the front and back bumper...ex. like changing the exhaust tips, grill shape, fog lite air vents...ect.
i like the idea of it though...did you know they are now making the car shells out of carbon fiber...of course its only for sports cars cuz its hella expensive but it makes the car rly light weight instead of using fiber glass

I see. I thought copying the carbon/chrome cars would have been a good move.
As far as a lack of customization goes, I tried and figured that the front and rear bumper would have looked like doodoo with my ideas.
And as far as the carbon fiber being expensive, that's why I said that it's just a paint job.

well the cheap way of getting your car to look like it has carbon fiber is buying sheets of fake carbon fiber... it looks pretty close to the real thing...it would just be a pain in the neck to try and wrap ur car in the stuff
i'm just waiting to see wat lexus is going to do about the judging and i wanna see who if any is going to be disqualified
i wish lexus went through and did the judging instead of the deviant art staff... i went and looked at their profiles and most of them are just photographers
i don't think they would know that much about cars but u never know
