I'll just say this, you don't really save much unless you really put a huge emphasis on it, but it's better than 4400lbs that's for sure.

Yep.
There's an old expression in the military (and the space industry) that I'll paraphrase as: "...ounces add up to pounds, and pounds add up to a motherf*cker". This basically translates to: unless you're willing to save weight along every single step of the process, there's not much to be shed after the fact.

YEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!!! FINALLY NONE OF THAT HORRIBLE BASIC TORSEN AWD SYSTEM AND FINALLY SOMETHING SPECIAL. I wonder what Lexus will call it as? Hopefully a name that sticks. That should go in all Lexus vehicles immediately.

Now, the cylinder count... Is it 2^3 or 2*3 cylinders?

Hey I didn't confirm anything lol; I think it's funnier to see you freak out.

That said, it has an awesome drivetrain.
Hey hey hey oh hey nice try... I'm sorry bro but it is you who famously does the "A70TTR" smile. :D <-- That face ALWAYS confirms something after someone makes an accurate comment or prediction, and have given us waves of happiness. Come on now... as for the powertrain... I'm keeping it vague like this so execs don't use cmd+F or ctrl+F to find any comments. Heeheehee!

2^3 cylinders or 2*3 cylinders? :confused1::hmm:

Haha, it generally means someone is heading in the right direction but not always spot on. It's a vague indicator of something that will eventually be revealed.

It could just mean it has a really advanced drive system; who knows.

As far as the engine, I'll give a little more away in time.

Well yeah for sure it's never spot on but always accurate.

But you smiled after I made the comment about AWD. :confused:

All right that's fair because you have an agreement. But I have an important question.

Anything on this? Apparently the spy photographers who took these photos said the car was "very loud". Was this a mule for the LS F?
