Lexus Releases Engine Sound Clip of Upcoming Detroit Vehicle Debut

Lexus World Premiere Graphic

Lexus has released a second video preview for their upcoming Detroit Auto Show debut, and it’s a major teaser:

There’s little doubt in my mind that this is a V8 engine, though it certainly sounds more raw than any past Lexus vehicle. An earlier rumor reported that an LC 500 with the 5.0L Lexus V8 would be the Detroit debut, but it’s hard to imagine this exhaust note in a standard model.

What do you think? Could this be the LC 500, or something more like an LC F? Or could it be a different model all together?

Any chance it is an LSF? I mean that would surprise everyone wouldn't it?

Could this be a 5.0l V8 that can have a little more power and a lot more torque?! The excitement is killing me! Good thing it's almost Monday

That exhaust is music to my ears.  I kinda hope it's an LS-F, but if it's the LC, that's OK too.

Hopefully, Lexus can squeeze out 100+ HP/Liter out of that 5.0 Liter V8 with a dual clutch transmission that can handle 8000+ rpm.
