OMFG!!!

* 4.8-liter 72-degree V10 putting out 560 hp at 8,700 RPM (that's 116.5 hp/liter) and 354 lb.-ft. of torque at 6,800 RPM
* Redline: 9,000 RPM
* Titanium valves, connecting rods, forged aluminum pistons, dry sump lubrication and a titanium exhaust manifold
* Six-speed sequential gearbox
* Torsen limited slip differential
* 3,263 pounds with a 48/52 front-to-rear weight distribution
* Power-to-weight ratio of 5.8 pounds/hp
* 65 percent of the body is carbon fiber
* 20-inch BBS wheels wrapped in 265/35 ZR20 Bridgestone tires in front and 305/30 ZR20 in the rear.
* 0-62 MPH (100 km/h) in 3.7 seconds
* Top speed of 201.94 MPH
* Production limited to 500 units

I wouldn't want anything else from a supercar. Those engine specs are perfect, that weight and distribution is perfect (although lighter could always be better ), DAYUM SON.

AGREED!

Nice work Lexus on keeping the weight down, all things considered.

This is phenomonal. I think it will be years before we even see such a breakthrough from Lexus again. I can't understand why they bring out nice concepts and their production models miss the mark. I'm glad this car looks like the concept and has performance to make other manufacturers think twice.

Here's a video and more pics. Not the best looking car in the video, but close detail shots show it to be a BEAST!!!!

New sig

Design = Nearly perfect. Front and back are great, but some fussy details
Performance = Perfect. Wouldnt change a thing.

I wish Lexus could bring this level of engineering and design to cars like the IS-F, IS convertible and infact the whole IS range and the new hatch.

It looks "unfinished", to put it politely.

agreed, they tried too hard and fell short. However, the performance numbers should be pretty amazing.

So this is 25000+? Seems quite expensive, but the specs look promising! It's not a pig!

I think it looks astonishing! Big thumbs up to Lexus on this car. The specs are outrageous and the instrument animations look awesome! I can't get over how good this thing sounds too. Some of the clips sound just like F1...

You better bet your ass it will go to 200,000 miles without any major issues.

I don't know... even though it's a Toyota the engine is still very-high strung... not to mention the electronics for a car of that price.

I like the profile; the rear is ok; the front is bad. The tach is awesome; hopefully something like that will trickle down to the IS or something.
