The illustrations show the Yaris with a lowered stance on sporty wheels, along with a widebody kit and Lexus-shaped (hourglass) grille.

Autoblog.com (via Autohome.com.cn) posted this story today of some "discovered" patent/trademark design drafts for an extremely tuned Toyota Yaris/Vitz.

The drafts show the Yaris/Vitz with a lowered stance on sporty wheels, along with a wide body kit and Lexus-shaped (spindle) grille. The designs are intriguing which rightfully lead them to speculate if it's a real model in development.

But we have to say it's a case of mistaken identity and it's not a Lexus at all. Actually, the car has been shown before.

Can anyone identify it? Please let us know in the comments below.
