Cologne, Germany – TOYOTA Motorsport GmbH (TMG) will present a range of high-performance vehicles at the Essen Motor Show (1-9 December), showcasing its race and road car developments.

Making its first public appearance at Essen will be the TMG Sports 650 concept, a TMG-developed 650hp, bi-turbo super sports car based on the Lexus LS 460.

As a showcase for TMG’s high-performance capabilities, this heavily-modified road car is intended to push the limits of performance in all areas.

It features a 4,969cm³ 650PS V8 engine, intended to achieve a top speed of 320km/h via an eight-speed high-torque-capacity transmission while the aerodynamics have been improved using TMG’s cutting-edge wind tunnels.

The TMG Sports 650 is a high-end limousine-sized car which is equally comfortable and exciting on the road as on track days.
