Lexus Supercar Prototype Spotted in Japan!


A prototype of the new Lexus supercar was spotted in Japan tearing up a track in the rain:

Developing a gas-powered supercar in 2023 is a strange move to be sure, but there’s no denying how good this engine sounds — can’t wait to find out more details on this prototype.

Whatever happened to that "secret" showing of the Toyota GT3 concept at a Lexus dealership where they slapped on a Lexus badge and called it the Lexus GT3? Lexus made everyone take down the photos (still have mine in my camera roll). I would assume this is that production version. Hopefully it's not just for the racing team.

I'm not getting excited, we're talking about Lexus here!

Does a front-engined McLaren P1 not excite you?

What about the fact that its a competitor to the Ferrari 812 Superfast/Lamborghini LB744 (we still don't know what it's actually called yet)? Does that not excite you?

EDIT: Well, I can still edit this post. Confirming earlier leaks, the LB744 got released today as the Revuelto.

Oh yeah, it's all coming together.

That is definitely the sound of a crossplane crank V8 😍.

Lexus can do better, I want them to do better! I think I mentioned before that there's Toyota and Lexus in my household.
The way you speak on EVERY comment is troll-like. You do not show any interest in Lexus "doing better." Just because you have one in your household does not mean anything. My dad once owned a Mercedes CClass. We all hated it. Even him. Just couldn't afford, at the time, to get something better.

I know. There are more than that.

What was the last thing GR developed?

Oh, it was a homologation special?

Weird whats the chances of them doing another one (high)
As long as it wears a Lexus badge and not a Toyota, that's all I care about. I only added my photo bc I thought the patents were strictly Toyota and not Lexus.

All the lexus design filing stuff goes under toyota in JP it seems

Always has, always will.

There's going to be 3 variants of this chassis. All have different powertrains with different price points too.

One Toyota, two Lexus cars. Y'all can try putting them together. :)
