That seemingly souped up Lexus LS that has been spotted lapping the Nurburgring these past few weeks now has a name, as well as some juicy details, thanks to a spied spec sheet. The Lexus LS-F has now been christened the TMG Edition, giving props to the company’s motorsports division, Toyota Motorsport GmbH. It’s hyped up engine and scorching numbers will come to fruition when the vehicle debuts at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Show in December.

According to the spied spec sheet, the Lexus LS-F TMG Edition will be powered by 5.0 L engine - quite possibly a higher displacement version of theLF-A’s V10 or a turbocharged version of the IS-F’s 5.0L V8. Whatever the engine, the LS-F will be pumping out 478 kW (650 PS, 641 HP) and 710 Nm of torque (523 lb-ft). Performance numbers are also listed as a 0-62 mph sprint of 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph).

So why an F version for the Lexus LS? Well, Lexus has been making some aggressive moves towards targeting the sportier models of its main competitors, competitors that have long mastered the combination of luxury and extreme performance - AKA BMW. This new Lexus LS-F TMG Edition looks like it could be a welcome player in the game.

The style of the car is simple, but the speed performance of this car is great with the 641 horse power and 199 mph maximum speed. This car concept looks like an Audi car.

I noticed that this sedan is had a very impressive engine specification, which gives me the idea that this simple sedan is so fun to drive with! smiley Anyway, when will be the market production of this one?

It is already very striking on its simplicity, and the wheel of this one is so cool on it, and the engine of it is quite good enough on it, but I’m quite curious on its interior features.

I’m impressed with its engine. It’s quite cool enough for this one, but I hope it also had an impressive interior feature and as for the exterior looks of it, I have to agree that it seems so simple, but it was very appealing about that.

Even though this Lexus LS-F TMG is only having an ordinary and simple platform design, I still find it very appealing, but I just don’t like the body paint that they used on it, it looks dead and boring.

I agree with you Trey Brown. This car is like an audi car. I think this car is light weight than the other cars because of the horse power of this car is 641. The horse power like this is for light weight car only. It depends to the parts of the car.

It has a simple design but nice color indeed. I think this one is affordable despite their elegant and classy looking car. I really like this 2012 Lexus LS-F TMG Edition. I can’t wait for the launching of this car.
