Lexus is certainly going to great lengths to emphasize the sportiness of its upcoming hybrid hatchback, the all-new 2011 Lexus CT 200h. After previewing an F-Sport endowed concept version of the car at last year’s Sydney Motor Show, Lexus has now called upon longtime tuning partner Five Axis to create something special for next week’s 2011 Chicago Auto Show.

For now, all we have is this teaser sketch to go by but it’s clear that aggressive bodykits, overstyled wheels and mesh grilles will be the order of the day.

You may remember the Five Axis name as the tuning firm behind projects like these recent SEMA offerings from Lexus. From conceptual design, to manufacturing, to final product, Five Axis handles all its work under one roof. The company was founded back in 1995 by Troy Sumitomo and is currently based in Huntington Beach, California.
