Lexus will use the upcoming Chicago Auto Show to keep the focus on its new CT200h hybrid luxury hatchback.

To do so Lexus will have on display a new concept version of the car build by tuning-house and design studio Five Axis. A single teaser sketch of the car has been released, with the CT sporting some custom aero work, a Tein suspension, 19-inch wheels, Stoptech brakes and a custom touch-screen interface.

Five Axis has a long-standing relationship with Lexus and Toyota, having build numerous SEMA vehicle for them over the years.

Targeted at younger buyers, Lexus has already shown an F-Sport styling and handling package for the CT and company execs have admitted they are looking at delivering a more potent version of the car. Could this wild concept preview such a model? We can only hope.

In addition, Lexus will show off two of this year’s SEMA vehicles, the VIP Auto Salon LS600hL and the Paul Tolson, EST Styling RX450h.
