New details are starting to leak out about the Lexus LS TMG Edition. Full coverage inside
A few months ago, pictures of a hopped up Lexus LS leaked out of Toyota Motorsports GmbH (TMG). The company wasn't thrilled about this and asked several sites to remove the images.
Now that the model is undergoing a fresh round of testing, the pictures are back online and additional information is starting to leak out. According to the spec sheet, the car is a TMG Edition and features a 5.0-liter engine with 650 PS (478 kW / 641 hp) and 710 Nm (524 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the 2070 kg (4,563 lb) luxury sedan to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph).
On the styling front, there's an aggressive front bumper, a revised grille and a ventilated hood. Other highlights include aerodynamic side skirts, extended wheel arches and a prominent rear spoiler.
The TMG Edition could be unveiled at the Tokyo Auto Show, in December, so expect to learn more in the coming months.
