Lexus LFA at Autobahn Country Club

I got a chance to go for a ride in the Lexus LFA (one of four in the world) and this is the video footage I took of the experience. It was at a private Lexus event at the Autobahn Country Club in Joilet, IL. The purpose of the event was to prepare dealerships in the mid-west for the production of the LFA, which is starting in December. I got an invite as a customer; a generous PR move by Lexus! I also got the chance to drive the ISF around the track for a while in the morning, which was also a great time.

Lexus LFA Crazy V10 Exhaust Sound in The City
It is not often you get to see a Lexus LFA on the streets of London, and it is the first time I have ever seen one on the road. The car, coupled with a Novitec Ferrari 430 Scuderia caused a stir in the capital. Crowds began to form as they parked, and the owners were happy to make a lot of noise as well, with huge accelerations and rev limiter revs. Not something that happens every day!

Lexus LFA Nordschleife lap
A lap around the Nürburgring Northschleife. My first time on the Nordschleife, didn't know the track well. Drove a few laps on PS3 a day before. Enough to remember the 1st third of the track, the rest was familiar, bot not enough. Made A LOT of mistakes, overshifted a lot trough the whole lap. Probably because of the excitment, so don't blame me :) Amazing expirience. Great to be able to look at the speedo too. The video hides true speed very well. Still in love with the engine and the sound of the car. The LFS is magnificent, sublime on the road and track. Best supercar I've driven. So balanced, so poised and with enormous levels of grip. Will remember this for the res of my life. Was one of the highlights of my journalistic career and I get chills just looking at this ... Timed the lap, and I think it would be around 8min05sec. Good&fast for my first time at the Ring. The car was a normal LFA, not the Nürburgring edition that did the best laptime for the LFA model.
