    I do NOT like the TMG badge in the grille. It needs to be the “L” and have TMG badging elswhere. It just look cheap and tacky. Can’t argue with much else though! Especially that engine.

    • Ian Schmidt

      Agreed 1000%.  It looks too much like a Ford grille badge, which in turn makes me wonder briefly if I’m looking at the coolest Crown Vic ever.

    • Thegreatkingissafe

      It’s not the 2013 LS.

  • Ljn71

    Kinky! I love it!

  • BlackDynamiteOnline

    So 0-60 in 3.7.  Weight 4520 lbs.
    I only see this as a test bed for the future Super LS in 3 years.  This is only foreplay.

    By 2016, something very similar will hit the streets.  And I would like an AWD option.

    • GuestGuy

      I agree with this. 

  • BOSS

     noooooooooo :((((( what’s with that LED on the front bumper(reminds me of a Benz), but everything else looks good.

    • Jose

      It makes sense, Toyota Motorsports GmbH headquarter is in Köln, Germany ;-)

  • Jose

    I wonder why, if Toyota Gmbh and Lexus work so closely, they don´t have done this car with the base of 2013 LS?. 
    Anyway, i Love it. I would buy without any doubt, I only would change the front grille logo, from a distance seems the Ford emblem.

  • Ljn71

    Wouldn’t mind seeing that engine in other models too. The LF-LC seems a good home for it.

  • WorldofLuxury

    641 hp = 650 PS* (;

  • Roman Pogoretskiy

    Speechless…. That is awesome! Let it out Lexus except use the new Five Axis body. Oh yeah…. 

  • Brad

    Sorry if I repeat any previous statements…I must unload my thoughts before reading in this case.
    First off…I really wish TMG had have put all that work into a current ’13 LS.This one looks dated already.
    Second…Please remove thad TMG badge off the front.It makes it look like a Ford Five Hundred or SHO.
    Third…Why do they have to limit the speed to below 200 MPH when it’s soooo close?
    Other than my above 3 comments,I think this beast is pure awesome.Would I buy one if Lexus builds somthing based off of this?…..HELL YEAH!!!

  • Aravind R RS

    I’m curious to see where that engine is headed for.

  • Antolinjr Cuyos

    benz, look whos on your left side mirror

  • CarFan

    Hi guys! Small design detail, kept discreet, and that justify the shape of the (ford looking like) logo: the surface behind the TMG logo is the top of TF110 F1 nose… ; )
