Just the Facts:
  • Custom paint, wheels and trim mark this SEMA-style concept at the upcoming 2011 Chicago Auto Show.
  • The Project CT features a Five Axis custom widebody conversion and JDSU Dark Passage paint.
  • A coil-over suspension system, forged alloy rims and uprated brakes are part of the package.

CHICAGO — Lexus previously has partnered with Five Axis on a number of SEMA showcars. At the upcoming 2011 Chicago Auto Show, Five Axis performs a style and performance makeover on a new Lexus hybrid, the CT 200h, that won't even reach U.S. dealers until March.

The Five Axis Project CT "proves that hybrids can be aggressive," claims Lexus in a bit of pre-show hyperbole.

In fact, the showcar features a Five Axis custom wide-body conversion, with JDSU Dark Passage paint and custom black accents. The CT rides on a Tein Flex coil-over suspension and Five Axis' own custom 19-inch FIVE:AD forged alloy rims, with Stoptech performance brakes up front.

Interior highlights include EcoDesign ultrasuede upholstery and a custom center console with touchscreen interface.

Edmunds.com says: Hardly the stuff to set pulses pounding, but definitely an improvement in looks. — Paul Lienert, Correspondent
