The Japanese premium brand posted a photo on its official Facebook page that allegedly shows part of the new F-Sport series car. At the moment, there are no details about the new product.

In its social networks, the premium Lexus continues to advertise for the new member of the F-Sport family. At the same time, no details about the technical side of the novelty were disclosed. Judging by the teasers recently published by the press service of the automaker, one can judge that the novelty has a carbon engine cover, a red body and a door.

It is already known that the official presentation of the new Lexus F-Sport series car will take place on February 22, 2021. For now, all we can do is make assumptions based on the previously shown teasers released by Lexus and compiled by our team.

The Lexus F features a 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 2UR engine that stands out from its smaller turbocharged competitors.

As Toyota and its more premium Lexus brand strive to create more fuel efficient powertrains that also need to remain competitive in terms of power levels, we expect the 2UR V8 as it used to be a thing of the past as one of the last great naturally aspirated V8 engines.

Instead, under the hood of the upcoming Lexus F-Sport, we hope to see at least a new turbocharged V6 engine that will allow Lexus to compete with similar cars from German competitors. While the turbocharged engine will lack the V8 character, its level of performance will be ample for fast driving.

Not so long ago, Automotive News wrote that the Lexus brand released the IS sports sedan for gamers. The Lexus brand recently launched a sports sedan aimed at gamers.
