Toyota Motorsport GmbH has released a few teaser photos on Facebook of its Lexus LS-based TX-650 ahead of Essen debut.

Following a report that came out earlier this month, TMG has confirmed the TMG TX-650 prototype which will be shown starting with November 30 when press days for the 2012 Essen Motor Show start. It will feature a carbon fiber roof, carbon ceramic brakes, BBS alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport tires, widened fenders and several carbon fiber aero parts.

Aside from these teaser photos, TMG also said that the vehicle will be powered by a bespoke twin-turbo V8 5.0-liter engine with more than 600 hp (447 kW) which will be enough for a top speed of about 200 mph (322 km/h).
