Published: Nov 27, 2012
Description: Believe it or not, under all that bulging bodywork and carbon-fiber aero bits sits a Lexus LS. Not the latest generation, mind you, because this project has been years in the making, but the previous ...

The rear looks gross. Hopefully both exhausts are real this time lol
Peter MacNeil Nov 27, 2012
Great job all around. 650hp wow. Nicely balanced design in all aspects. The trickle down effect of tech should do nicely in the future of the Lexus F series.
Thomas Opie Taylor Nov 27, 2012
build this car ill take 2
Bala Uncc Nov 27, 2012
That's one super tuning
John Chase Nov 28, 2012
Nothing special here.
Mohammed Vaid Nov 27, 2012
Looks too much like a ford front end
Brendan Bell Nov 27, 2012
The grille makes it look like the old ford focus st
Jason Brown Nov 27, 2012
Mistakenly hit post too soon. Although TMG works with Lexus, they make a lot of decisions on their own. So does AMG for Benz.
Jason Brown Nov 27, 2012
Erich, it's not Lexus that's doing that to this car, it's the tuner. Please take the time to read sometimes.
Zaire Wilkins Nov 27, 2012
i think this is just a preview keep in mind the 2013 LS is out i think that would look alot better
Ethan Amo Nov 27, 2012
Lookin good
John Serely Nov 27, 2012
I don't like it at all. Way to much tacky add-ons for a luxury-super-sedan. Lexus should take notes from the Germans (S63, Panamera Turbo, S8 etc) and Americans (Caddy CTS-V) when trying to make super fast luxury cars, because they will see that the tacky body kit is not needed, just a little more agressive body.
Chad Schley Nov 27, 2012
It looks good. You guys are too critical.
Franklin Lopez Nov 27, 2012
I thought this was a dumbed down Ford. I was right
Phaidon Chrisostalis Nov 27, 2012
Uglyy
Pablo Herasme Nov 27, 2012
All you get tacked way too easy, I thinks it looks ok
Droops Asistio Nov 27, 2012
the leds and the badge ruin it but i like it.
Drew Humphrey Nov 27, 2012
Too much. Tuners need to leave the badges alone especially.
Shannon Sims Nov 27, 2012
This is just too busy for my eyes.
Jerry Townsend Nov 27, 2012
It does look like a modified Ford Focus/Fusion.....
Paul Dickey Nov 27, 2012
Get rid of the LEDs.
Dylan Bruder Nov 27, 2012
That's tacky
Bala Uncc Nov 27, 2012
With the tag badge, somehow it looked like a ford car

Description: And of course there's the matte champagne bodywork that ditches all Lexus badging for TMG's own, and looks like it could tackle any touring car series from Germany's DTM to Japan's...

Its not only old rich ppl and size of car dont matter, look at the success of the panamera that car drives like a tank, ppl who can afford this can afford to have a purpose built sports car also, the rich dont need a reason they can afford not to.
Jason Brown Nov 27, 2012
... Auto correct sucks...
Jason Brown Nov 27, 2012
drive them like a M3, ISF, or C63? Almost never. I don't know about the rest of you, but the only people who I see driving these large cars around my area are rich OLD people. They are fuller in paying more for something they never use.
Jason Brown Nov 27, 2012
Impressive numbers indeed. But when it comes to actually buying something like this, I would rather put the money into something thy is more fun and smaller. People talk about These huge luxury sports style cars, but seriously when will you actually
Terrance Parker Nov 27, 2012
Put that work into the new supra
Terrance Parker Nov 27, 2012
Fantastic numbers
Nick Benz Nov 27, 2012
But the real question is: how much does it weigh?
Joel C Hughes Nov 30, 2012
I like the exhaust. Maybe play around with a few things. Looks good. I'd push it.
Michael Beach Nov 28, 2012
@Aaron: I was thinking the same thing
Aaron Sparks Nov 28, 2012
This car screams overcompensation.
Jason Brown Nov 27, 2012
So many German tuners either spit out something wacky or super clean. Think this is a bit on the wacky side.
John Serely Nov 27, 2012
Not a fan of the exhaust. Try a normal exhaust
Yatish Wentink Nov 27, 2012
Going to MotorShow Essen next week. I will look for this car for sure. I can then see the car in real (and give a better judgment), because in real you always get an other impression of the car than on a picture.
Tanton Stoneman Nov 27, 2012
I need one of these. Immediately.
Austin Joseph Gillentine Nov 27, 2012
What's wrong with everybody? This car is freaking amazing! I love it all!
Raschard Jackson Nov 27, 2012
I bet only 2 of those are real anyway. Just like the IS-F. Way too busy all around for me. Thumbs down.
Franklin Lopez Nov 27, 2012
Little overkill dont ya think?
Frankie Ferreira Nov 27, 2012
So uhmm should've use an isf
Zaire Wilkins Nov 27, 2012
should have the classic quad exhaust
Shannon Sims Nov 27, 2012
Again,... This is just busy for me. It's got to much need for speed type add on's for me!!!
Janak Solanki Nov 27, 2012
That exhaust placement sucks
Mike Bakhsheshi Nov 27, 2012
Agree with you Eric
Taylor Garry Nov 27, 2012
Agreed tone it down on the cheap looking body add ons. It just looks stupid. This could be a great sleeper
Michael Kozlowski Nov 27, 2012
Those exhaust tips just look dumb
Dylan Bruder Nov 27, 2012
The whole car is quirky
Bala Uncc Nov 27, 2012
Exhaust looks little bit freaky
Franklin Lopez Nov 27, 2012
I see some Merkur in it. Plop a double spoiler on the trunk and presto! Merkur XR4-Ti
Janak Solanki Nov 27, 2012
Wheels look too small on this car
Hans Wangsness Nov 28, 2012
Don't replace the badge!
Leonardo Santana Nov 27, 2012
Did no see this coming from Lexus, looks good!
Raschard Jackson Nov 27, 2012
See... I meant or*
Raschard Jackson Nov 27, 2012
Broken screen on iPhone sorry in advance for spelling errors of missed spaces :P
Raschard Jackson Nov 27, 2012
Oh btw I was saying no to the car itself. Not to Janek'scomment.
Jommel Marcella Nov 27, 2012
Janak*
Jommel Marcella Nov 27, 2012
I agree with Janek
Raschard Jackson Nov 27, 2012
Uhmmm... No.
Janak Solanki Nov 27, 2012
Looks like it has a disease.
Joel C Hughes Nov 30, 2012
At least they have the right tires on there. #lovemichelinpilotsupersporttires
Jörgen Nilsson Nov 27, 2012
I don't think the vent looks like it does on a RX-8.
Brandon Metzger Nov 27, 2012
Same type of design on the Mazda RX-8.
Alex Newgard Nov 27, 2012
Panamera
Garrett Keller Nov 27, 2012
I feel like I've seen that side vent before. Can't remember which car though
Devin Babyn Nov 27, 2012
Well the intake tubes run right into them so if it isn't intake then they hid the shit out of those filters
Drew Humphrey Nov 27, 2012
Something with air ;)
Sasa Jungic Nov 27, 2012
And it reduces front end lift.
Devin Babyn Nov 27, 2012
Intakes, sucking in the cold air from the hood vents
Bala Uncc Nov 27, 2012
What are these two things?
