Practical Motoring has more on the rumored twin-turbo 4.0L V8 engine that could power the next-generation of Lexus F models:
…an anonymous source with knowledge of the upcoming North American Lexus LS model range confirmed to [Practical Motoring] that Lexus will be introducing a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged petrol V8 engine. The source also claims there is ‘a good chance’ that same engine will be placed into an LC F and, it would only be logical, that it will also be placed into the upcoming GS F.
Speaking with Lexus Australia PR communications manager, Nick Raman, PM was told that Lexus had some exciting news up its sleeve for this years Tokyo motor show: “For sure, we are going to have some very interesting news”, he said, “we will have something to show at Tokyo” – but Raman could not allude if that something will be an ‘F’ vehicle or if it will powered by the speculated turbo V8.
(While there’s no denying Lexus will try and make a splash in Tokyo, they’ve already publicly denied the LC F will debut at the show.)
