Just came across this on another site and thought you might wanna see it. Apparently its the new Supra however it also says its being manufactured by Lexus. ( Hence the Lexus badge on the pics )













Heres a little info that was on the site.

Quote:
Well, it looks like a new Toyota-engineered supercar is on the horizon. It's just that this new car will be sporting a Lexus badge.

Lexus took off the wraps of its LF-A sports car concept earlier this year. This vehicle takes Lexus' new styling philosophy -- "Luxury Finesse" -- and used it to create a sexy two seat supercar.

As this car is still officially in the "concept" phase, there's not a whole lot of concrete info on it. Lexus has said that, in theory, development of the LF-A would run parallel to Lexus' R&D in F-1. All of the suspension, aero and engine tricks learned on the racetrack would find their way into the production LF-A.

What we do know (in theory), is that the LF-A would come powered by an engine capable of making over 500 horsepower. This engine, when combined with proper aero tuning and gears, should rocket the LF-A to speeds over 200 miles per hour.

Lexus liked to throw around the names and numbers of other supercars when giving out some of the specs of the concept. The LF-A's overall length comes in at just a hair over 173 inches. This makes the LF-A 5 inches shorter than a Porsche 911 Turbo. However, the LF-A's 101.6-inch wheelbase is 9 inches longer than the 911's. The LF-A has a very low profile, standing just 48 inches tall - or about the same height as a Ferrari F430.

Now while most auto manufacturers like to throw out these supercar concepts to whet the appetites and capture the imaginations of the general public, they are very rarely put into production. With Lexus' somewhat... sensible vehicles, we'd normally bet that the LF-A would never see the light of day. However, our good friends at Edmunds scored a video of something that looks like the LF-A being tested at the Nurburgring.
And heres the link to the Video: SUPRA LF-A

On the site i got it from it says its the new Supra ... there was more info explaining about it such as ...

Quote:
With the demise of Toyota's Supra in 1998, the Toyota fan community cried a collective tear. The Supra combined exotic car looks and world-class performance with Toyota's world-renowned build quality and reliability. It's still a highly-coveted car with enthusiasts to this day.

While Nissan's Z and Mazda's Rotary Experiment-8 have made triumphant returns from the dead, a performance car from Toyota still seemed unlikely. Sure, there were millions of rumors floating around the 'net about a successor to the Supra, but no official statement ever came out of Toyota.

Would say it's more bugatti-like styling, not really my thing but it'd sure turn heads.
