    That's the closest thing to a Formula 1 engine note I've heard coming from a production-based car.

    Off the subject but listen to the upcoming Kawasaki MotoGp bike with a conventional screamer firing order. Incredible, even better then the original Ducati V4 of 2003.

    Toyota needs to stop teasing and release the damn thing as a Supra!.

    Id be camping outside my local toyota dealership if they gave the green light for it. Toss in a smaller V-8 engine for go, price it for less than the 350Z and make it faster than the LS3 Corvette.

    I think it looks light years better than the GTR and sounds amazing.

    Sounds like a cross between the 360 and 430 really to me. Not so much like the CGT, but that is an awesome sounding car as well!

    Probably dubbed. I'm sure the same thing could be done with footage of our Nissan Quest.;)

    Remember this is a prototype, so one can assume that Toyota will tone it down alot, remember this is going to be a Lexus! To bad....

    the throttle blips at the end of the straight (i'm assuming matched revs during downshift) are awesome

    Not true with how the market is going the damn thing can cost more than a ZR1 but as long as it does good at the Ring people will think its a god like value as they did with the GTR. :D

    YUCK! Not quite as ugly as a GTR, but put a hard top on it (or just put the top up on this car) and I bet it would be!

    This car is going to be much more expensive than the GT-R or even the ZR1. It's going to be closer to $200k than $100k.

    I can see the finished product selling for more than that as a possiblitly. Especially if its got the performance to back it up. The next Ford GT is here!.
