Ever wondered what vaporware looks like? Then check out these new images of the V10-powered Lexus LF-A Nurburgring racer for us to lust after. Too bad we'll never actually be able to buy one.

Last month we gave you a teaser of what the Lexus LF-A Nurburgring racer livery would look like, now Toyota is once again dangling the carrot in front of our faces with these latest images of the two cars they'll field at the ADAC Zurich 24 Hours Of the Nürburgring race this weekend. Both race-prepped cars get their 500-horsepower motivation from a front-mid mounted V10 allowing for 200mph+ runs down the Nurburgring straight. Toyota-owned e-commerce website, Gazoo Racing will be the official team entering the cars with an eclectic group of Toyota test drivers, dealers and even next-in-line CEO, Akio Toyoda, who's being entered under the name "Morizo."

Knowledge gained from the endurance racing program will eventually be translated into the road-going production car, but we're infinitely curious as to when that will actually happen. Until then, enjoy the vaporware. [via Toyota]
