2011 Lexus Project CT by Five Axis

The steam is running out on the launch of Lexus’ CT 200h, so what better way to keep up the pace than to bring out a special Lexus CT200h hybrid concept designed by Five Axis? This particular tuner knows a thing or two about tuning Lexus models simply because they are well known for the partnership they have with Toyota Toyota and Lexus. So far, we only have a sketch of the concept revealed by Five Axis, but it allows us to get an idea of the special vehicle that is scheduled to be revealed at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show in just a few days!

The Lexus CT 200h by Five Axis will be showcasing some serious custom aerodynamics, a Tein suspension, 19-inch wheels, Stoptech brakes, and a custom touch-screen interface. All of the updates are purely aesthetic - no engine work here - because the tuner wants to focus on improving the car’s look to attract younger buyers.

The CT 200h’s full hybrid system combines a 1.8 liter VVT-i petrol engine, a powerful electric motor, a generator, a high performance battery, a power control unit, and a power split device. Not sure how this 134hp engine setup will go over with the younger crowd, but thinking "green" is such a fad nowadays that aesthetics improvements just may be enough to win them over.

This Project CT is truly a teaser! It seems so cool and awesome on its exterior detailing. I just only hope that they would already boost the engine that they are going to use on this vehicle.

This project CT is a very confusing vehicle, but one thing I noticed that it had a cool wheel, which is so attractive on it. Anyway, I am hoping to see a clear picture of this one.

It does not symbolize power. The colors on the picture are just a design but the wheels are an asset. It looks good but this car is plain. They will probably do more upgrades. Let’s wait and see.

Well, I guess you’re right. They probably need to add a bit more style on this one in order to make it more attractive. Though it does have its good points.

I think this car needs more improvement, The sort of style is kinda boring. It is much better if this model will converted into a new version and updated hygiene.

hmm. Well, I find this car has a lot of potential for future production. However, I think the power of the car is just Ok. Still, they doesn’t have a concrete plan for this model.

Yeah, still the plan is not yet concrete but I have to say that it has a great aesthetic! I want to read the latest upgrade on this car. I Will definitely watch it out!

I like the highlights effect of this type of car,It symbolizes power and great demands of customers choice.

The crew have taken their widest liberty with the scalpel at the rear. As if such an underpowered car needs such a diffuser anyway.

what would it take to make Toyota and the band of tuner that follow them give this car some much needed under hood balls? Right now, even the redesigns nothing more than an overpriced new age. Even I can admit the scions potential to be at least a little more than that.

Its funny, yeah! but in the sense that, Toyota point out the best in this car..then "recall" later. Haha. Let’s do hope that I’m wrong..smiley

How funny that the Lexus with 134hp would go along the " young crowd’ haha. Let’s just do hope that CT 200h’s hybrid system would be a ticket to their success!
