Because of the widebody kit, DTM style front bumper, nascar style rear spoiler, big brakes, mesh grilles, CF wrapped roof, and gutted interior. If it had stickers it might of had 700 hp lol each one of those mods is about 75 or so hp

Then, probably a minimum of 600 hp (if they're planning to compete head-on with the S65 AMG)

I also do not buy that they will be developing a sedan with 650 hp.I would estimate 500 to 550 hp. I will wait until we have hard facts before getting to excited. I am very pleased that they are doing stuff like this. They need to change the image a bit and jazz up the styling

I'd wager money that this is a test mule for the 4GS F.

Yup, if we all use a little common sense, it is the most likely scenario for why they are testing this right now. We know Lexus likes to test new things in extreme undercover.

I can't wait to see this bad boy once it's it production! Ive always loved the LS and for them to plan a LS-F would be sick!!

i think so too, but since lexus does things backwards, i wont be surprise to see this in a LS before the GS

Wouldn't the longer wheelbase change the handling characteristics of the settings though?

I would think that using a 3GS mule would make better sense than using the LS, but I'm not a car designer.

it is project car and one that will probably be unveiled soon enough... what does that mean for the future? Who knows.

But 650hp is turbos and not s/c.

I hope they bring out an LS-F at a lower price point, equaled performance, and better reliability than the S63 or S65. That would get me to swing back to Lexus for my big sedan. Seems like LFA engine tech trickling down to their more plebeian offerings. This bodes well for future F variants of the GS and such.

I remember seeing this car along with LFA long time ago. It probably means nothing for future Lexus. Probably a fun project for some wealthy folks. Or could be a test mule for next generation corolla.
