Lexus is reportedly working on a supercar even more extreme than its LFA halo car, which could rival Ferrari’s upcoming Enzo replacement.

According to website AutoGuide, an unnamed senior executive within Toyota has revealed details of the car, describing it as "twice the car", with a "significantly higher" level of performance.

Along with a reported production run of no more than 100 units, buyers' bank accounts can likely look forward to a red-hot hiding.

The LFA launched in Australia with a price tag of $750,000 - Japan's most expensive offering to date - and all 500 cars were snapped up well before production began in 2010.

This all suggests that a car twice-as-good and five times more exclusive could potentially sell for more than $1.5 million; within (a billionaire's) spitting distance of Veyron money.

Just how far beyond the LFA the new model's styling would go can only be imagined, although the LF-LC concept shown in January could offer a hint.

If the LF-LC’s ‘Advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive System’ were combined with a variant of the LFA’s 412kW V10 engine, it would make a logical halo car for the entire Toyota group and its continued commitment to hybrid electric technology.

A petrol-electric drivetrain would also set the car up as an ideal rival for Porsche’s upcoming 918 supercar.

When (or even if) we'll see the new supercar is another story; from concept through to production, the LFA was nearly 10 years in the making.
