We’ve all heard the rumors that TMG will become Toyota’s AMG. But until that happens, the racing specialists will debut the hotly anticipated Toyota LS TMG Edition at the upcoming 2012 Essen Motor Show, according to Motor Authority.
The car features a 4,968 cc (5.0-liter engine) that develops an astounding 650 horsepower. That’s more power than the Lexus LFA’s 72 degree 4.8-liter V10 engine... in a family saloon.

According to a previously leaked spec sheet, the motor is good for 710 Nm of torque and can propel the extreme Lexus sedan to 100 km/h (62 mph)in just 4.2 seconds, and on to a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph).

Expect this extreme racing prototype in road car disguise to come with a blistering Nurburgring lap time.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
