Here’s a great video that shows just how Five Axis built the Lexus Project CT:
That paint is amazing, the color shift is out of this world. Five Axis really put together something special.

When you look into their site, you’ll notice that they’re real pros! They’re one of many 3rd-party people whom Toyota outsource their concept projects to, including the LF-Ch. So pretty much, the people at the Calty Design Center in Newport Beach laid out the ideas and sent them over to Five Axis in Huntington Beach to bring it all to life! I wanna hire them!!! The way they messed with the center console in the Project CT is so… “legit”!
Yes that center console is awesome. If only it made its way into the production vehicle.
That is one unattractive car.
Doesn’t look like there is any room behind the rear seat for golf clubs!!
That is the ugliest car I’ve ever seen! Not even classy! Why would you encourage people to social network while in car when thousands are killed on the road because of texting and phone use! Shame on you!
It’s like the CT 200h merged my Audi A3, which I’ll admit isn’t the sexiest car in this world, w/ the back windows of the (older version/no “smile”) Mazda 3 and came up with a BAD (I mean UGLY) design. But I do like some of the slick stuff the 5 Axis guys did to make the CT 200h a bit more palatable. A bit, but still hard to swallow (urp!).
And the new LF Gf project car, a sedan, swiped a lot of A4 sedan looks, including the mirror-opposite of the upcoming A3 sedan (no more hatch!) & A4 sedan, plus a “3″-named SUV by Audi (but not the A3).
I sorta like the Lexus LF Gf (or something similarly-named) sedan’s grill, even if it’s a bit of a rip-off design. But then that’s so much of Lexus’ (and Hyundai’s) upscale design schemes: Lexus is a Mercedes knock-off, and the high-tone Hyundais are Lexus’ knock-offs.
Who’s next…? India’s car crop imitating with an upscale Hyundai Equus knock-off?
