The guys across at motor-authority have found out that Toyota’s Motorsport division (TMG) will unveil the Lexus LS 650 prototype at the Essen Motor Show on the 1st of December.
We Spotted this car at the Nurburgring’s industry pool last year and has not been spied since, the car was surprisingly not camouflaged but perhaps a lot of changes to the car have been made, including aggressive wheel arches and the addition of carbon splitters.
As you can see from the photos it has got bonnet vents and huge brakes along with a rear spoiler.
Mark Webber made his Formula One debut in 2002, scoring Minardi’s first points in three years at his and Stoddart’s home race. After his first season Jaguar Racing took him on as lead driver. During two years with the generally uncompetitive team Webber several times qualified on the front two rows of the grid and outperformed his team mates. His first F1 win was with Red Bull Racing in the 2009 German Grand Prix, which followed second places at the 2009 Chinese, Turkish, and British Grands Prix. By the end of 2009, Webber had scored eight podiums, including another victory in Brazil. His eight podiums in 2009 compares to only two podiums in the first seven years of his career.
With a CV like that it is of no surprise that he knows how to drive a car, and he owns a Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
So the Porsche marketing team set to work on publicising the formula 1 drivers purchase, by offering a lucky few to be passengers around silverstone.
Webber describes the 650hp Porsche GT2-RS as a little bit naughty, that to me is like calling Fred West innocent.
