Ive been staring at these pics for the last half hour All I can say is Wow. I like it but its way too agressive nothing I would expect from Lexus. More than likely a LS for some sort of track race. Id love the car with open headers coming out under the fenders lol

Looked at it for a while as well and Im wonderin whats under the hood as well. Carbonfiber roof and front lip? Maybe its a private owners attempt at breaking a luxury car run at nurburgring?

Someone posted a complete spec sheet of this car and pictures a while ago in the LFA forum, and Lexus ask the moderator to delete the thread. The pictures were of this LS, a special looking LFA and another car inside the garage of the Lexus performance unit in Germany. If I remembered correctly, the engine displaced 5L and the power rating was 600 or more hp. I guess Lexus is testing the LS-F
There were wild speculations on how Lexus could extract that kind of power from a 5L V8...
