The Lexus Super GT500 is Going to be a Monster

Track Car

And it sure as hell sounds like one.

Lexus is in the midst of a renaissance. As it continues to deviate away from boring and conservative models, the Japanese automaker is also delving further into high-performance. The recently discontinued LFA was only the first example of this new-found awesomeness. Next up will be the RC F, a 455-horsepower V8 beast that’ll compete head-on with the upcoming BMW M4. Lexus is also busy prepping the track version Super GT500.

Only this time it’ll be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. Despite the small displacement, this car sounds like a monster and now we have our first video of it testing on the track. Oh Lexus, we never knew you had it in you to be such a bad ass.
