The naturally-aspirated 5.-litre V8 from the road-going car is within the bonnet, with the power raised from 450bhp to 532bhp. With the car weighing only 1249kg, this thing should be quick.

It’ll be delivered to racing teams next year, and is also expected to compete in events such as the 24 Hours Of Nurburgring endurance race, and Japan’s Super GT series.

The concept is going to be publicly unveiled next week at the Geneva motor show, alongside the newest RC Sport (above). That car is going to be available as either the RC300h having a 217bhp hybrid powertrain, or the RC350 by using a 306bhp 3.5-litre V6. For reasons outlined in our recent IS300h review, we’d recommend you avoid the hybrid.
