New Lexus ct200h Five Axis tuning

Quite interesting, the last two or three years have marked the birth of a powerful trend concerning the hybrid cars. Actually, beyond the fuel economy, these 4 wheel wonders have turned from the ugly ducklings of the auto industry in the beautiful swans of tomorrow's highways earning more and more points in style and power areas.
Now, about the CT200h, we should say that this Lexus comes with a 1.8 liter inline 4 with continuously Variable Valve Timing (VVT) technology and a high output permanent magnet electric-drive motor. These two power plants can reach together a medium power of 134 hp that is transmitted to an electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission and from there to the front wheel drive. Moreover, this technological wonder has three driving modes (ECO, Normal and Sport) and a 0 to 60 timing of less than 10 seconds, quite ok for this kind of car. But enough with the technical data and let's go back to the recently opened Detroit Auto Show.
Here, in the heart of the American car industry, Lexus has brought a one of a kind CT200h, really tweaked out by the guys over at Five Axis tuning company. We're talking here about a car with unique body paint, a lowered suspensions system and some improved brakes that really tend to bring this car closer to perfection. Yes, this is exactly the kind of cat that you could easily find at the SEMA tuning event in Las Vegas, yet even so, Lexus seems to have other plans concerning this tuned up hybrid car.
