Lexus' upcoming LF-A supercar has been spotted scorching up the pavement at Germany's Nurburgring, the place to be for any respectable prototype these days. This latest video captures the car doing some intense laps of the notorious circuit and reveals the sound of the car's new 5.0L V10 engine.

There have been rumblings that the LF-A could be a little "soft", but the sound emanating from its triple stacked tailpipes has a shriek that reminds us of a V10 Formula One car. With an estimated 500hp on tap from its front-mid-engined powerplant, as well as a rear-mounted transaxle, we have no reason to doubt the LF-A will come close to a top speed of 200mph.

Though we get a glimpse of the basic shape of the car in this vid, heavy camo gear still shrouds some of the finer details. All should be revealed soon when officials take off the wraps at October's Tokyo Motor Show, where details about a hybrid version may also be released.
