Rob Wray from mp3Car gets a first time view of the new Lexus LFA. This car is simply beautiful. It sports an LCD display screen that can control race times. It also has an automated manual transmission plus the standard Lexus in dash screen.
With 350 lbs of torque and 0-60 in about 3 seconds it may be worth the 375k price tag.
Lexus LFA Road and Track Test
The new 2011 Lexus LFA gets tested on the road and on the Nurburgring GP
I still don't really know what to think about it, it's far too expensive
for what it is. It's more expensive than any current production Lamborghini
or Ferrari. I think it's a good car but it's not groundbreaking in any way
and doesn't really warrant such a big price tag, despite being bespoke and
a rare limited edition special. Edmunds say it is capable of a time of 7
minutes and 23 seconds, which softens the price blow slightly, but I can't
see it being an immediate success and I can't see 'die hard Lexus fans'
wanting one because I don't think they exist. It could be a classic in the

Gijs records an amazing new Lexus LFA in action at the Nürburgring
Nordschleife in Germany. Lexus has produced a great looking and sounding
car with this LFA. I personally love this car. I've seen and heard it in
action and I can tell it sounds great. Unfortunately I wasn't able to
record all of the action, so you will have to do with this footage. Hope
you like it though. Subscribe for more supercar action.
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.
2011/2012 Lexus LF-A (behind scenes)
This is a Live video of the Lexus LFA
All New Lexus LFA production version
Price tag: $400,000
The All New Lexus LFA is powered by a bespoke, high-revving 552bhp
4.8-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine, matched to a rear-mounted
six-speed sequential automatic transmission, giving 200mph-plus
Keeping the car's weight to an absolute minimum was one of the defining
elements in the development of the Lexus LFA and this led to the decision
to switch from using aluminium for the car's construction to advanced
Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) for the chassis and bodywork.

Lexus LFA @ 2009 Tokyo Auto Show:
Third gear and the throttle pedal is nailed to the 2011 Lexus LFA's
carbon-fiber bulkhead. The 4.8-liter V10 is rotating 8,000 times per minute
and still you don't have to change gear as the 552 horses from Japan are
pulling in unison. Now 9,000 rpm and the pistons are traveling at 82 feet
per second, so flick the right-side shift paddle and feel the jolt as the
automated manual transmission's solitary clutch completes the gearchange.

Most of us will never get the chance to drive the LFA (although Top Gear's
Stig took it around the Dunsfold test track yesterday), but after Lexus
uploaded a few sound clips to their microsite (http://www.lexus-lfa.com/)
we felt compelled to bring them all together into a single 75 second
We think that it sounds a lot like a Carrera GT, and whatever you think of
the LFA, you surely can't deny that it sounds pretty special...
