On my 2nd most recent video, the one of the supercar rally, this black
Lexus LFA made a short appearance. Many people in the comments section
wanted to see more of it, so I'm honoring your guys' requests and I present
to you guys a full video of this $385,000 Lexus.
Although not my favorite color, black is quite classy on the LFA. In the
video, you can see it arriving at the event, driving around a bit, giving
some nice revs, and then leaving along with other cars, giving off its
incredible, F1 sounding Exhaust note.

Man Arrested After 195 MPH Corvette Run
30-year-old Cody Replogle was hoping to sell his extensively modified
Corvette and used the YouTube videos of himself supposedly going 195 mph
around Oklahoma City freeways as some sort of enticement to would-be buyers
who might be impressed by how easy it is to be a complete and utter moron
in the car.

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2015 Lexus NX is a new small crossover that's
sexy, stylish and sassy...at least that's what Lexus hopes is a winning
formula for a new small the luxury AWD car. In another accurate, fun and
informative TFLcar review, Nathan goes to Portland to drive the new Lexus
NX, hybrid, and F-Sport. How do these different versions of the car drive?

While Land Rover arguably invented the concept of a luxury SUV with their
first Range Rover, the 1998 Lexus RX is the vehicle that's had the single
biggest impact on the luxury industry. Initially derided by the press as a
lifted Camry with delusions of grandeur, calling the RX a run away sales
success would be an understatement. Lexus' original crossover now accounts
for over a third of the brand's total volume in America and holds the crown
as the best selling luxury vehicle on our shores. Trouble is, the RX has
grown over time and is now a half-step too big for European tastes. In the
hopes of dominating a third of Lexus brand sales in Europe, Lexus engineers
went back to the drawing board and created s little brother for the RX: the
2015 Lexus NX.
The right-sized Lexus crossover is, as you'd expect, almost exactly the
same size as the Audi Q5, Volvo XC60, BMW X3 and Acura RDX. That puts the
NX slightly ahead of the Mercedes GLK, four inches ahead of the 2015
Lincoln MKC and a full foot longer than the Range Rover Evoque. With 6.9
inches of ground clearance the NX should be just as dirt-road capable as
the average luxury soft-roader and interestingly Lexus bothers to publish
approach and departure angles. In case you're now wondering, approach is
28.7 degrees in 200t and 300h trim and 16.8 deg in the F-Sport because of
the flatter front end. Departure remains 24 degrees on all models.
Before you ask, the NX isn't a shrunken RX and it isn't a luxury RAV-4
either. Lexus claims that 90% of the parts are unique to the NX and those
that are shared are primarily related to the optional hybrid system. Thanks
to the clean sheet design, the NX is the first Lexus that looks comfortable
in the new corporate uniform.While other Lexus models (namely the LS) wear
the "spindle" grille surprisingly well, other aspects of the new design
language haven't translated well to the luxury brand's utility vehicles.
The "Nike swoosh" LED daytime running lamp modules that look oddly
out-of-place on the IS sedan actually work on the NX and I found myself
wondering why. I think the answer can be found in the headlamp module which
is much sleeker than in other Lexus models thanks to standard LED low
beams. Overall the combination allows for a more balanced front end.
From tip to tail there's no doubt that the NX's design won't be for
everyone, but I find that refreshing for a brand long known for
design-restraint. I wouldn't exactly call it the looks ground breaking or
polarizing, but this is as close as Lexus has even been. Although Lexus is
making an NX F-Sport Hybrid, Lexus has chosen to not offer the aggressive
grille and fuel-sipping engine combo in America.Under the hood beats the
first turbo engine Lexus has sold in
America: an all-new 2.0L direct-injection turbocharged four-cylinder engine. While the
engineers spent most of their time telling members of the press how
fantastic their turbo design is, I was
more intrigued that this seems to be the first non-hybrid drivetrain that
can switch between an Otto and an Atkinson cycle. (Mazda tells me they do
not consider the SkyAcitv design an Atkinson cycle.) The technology behind
this is a new variable valve timing system that can adjust the intake and
Exhaust cam timing independently
allowing for a late intake valve closure when efficiency rather than torque
is required. Also on the trivia list is an air-to-water Intercooler instead of a more typical
air-to-air unit. The result is 235 horsepower from 4,800-5,600
RPM and 258 lb-ft from 1,650-4,000 RPM.
Rather than borrowing the 8-speed automatic used in the RX350 F-Sport (and
the XC60), Lexus chose to refresh an existing 6-speed auto and tweak it for
the turbo engine's low-end torque. The
engineer I spoke with claimed that the rationale behind the missing gears
was that "an 8-speed automatic isn't as much fun with paddle shifters."
Make of that what you will.
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.
