What engine/exhaust sound should the FT-1 have?

Since no one knows what engine Toyota may use on the FT-1, what engine/exhaust sound would you like from whatever ends up being in it?

I want something that when you hear it you're gonna know its an FT1. Like what they did with the LFA. I found a video that shows the LFA exhuast note breaking champaign glass.

I want the twin turbo sound... Something that makes M4 owners feel jealous.

I wouldn't mind a refined sound of what the MKIV Supra sounds like or something closer to the LFA would be ideal

I think Toyota will use the new V6 twin turbo that's expected to be used on the next generation Lexus ISF (around 450hp/450tq is expected). From a business side I can see why spend more money/time on another new engine when one is already under way. This also helps keep costs down and can sell to more customers.

I think the funding of the FT-1 will be invested more on the handling/aerodynamics of the car since it is lightweight to make it a great overall sports car.

I really hope that TMG turns into some serious performance brand for Toyota and that they do come out with some exhaust system for it and of course there's TRD but TMG seems to be about some even more serious business.
