    It's just the test mule

    Lexus’ long-awaited LF-A has unofficially smashed the lap record at Germany’s Nürburgring, with a time of seven minutes, 24 seconds. That beats Porsche’s new GT2 by a second and makes the Lexus the King of the ’Ring. Company insiders have revealed that a 4.8-litre V10 – co-developed with Yamaha – powered the record-breaking test mule. It revs to 9,000rpm and pumps out 552bhp. Combined with a highly aerodynamic body, it should enable the LF-A to hit 210mph.

    You can buy almost 3 GTR's for the price of the LFA (if it's $225k), it's only 2 seconds faster than the 2010 GTR, it sounds like a little girl at WOT (although the little girl sound resembles F1 I won't lie) and I am pretty sure I've seen an older design with 3 exhaust tips, I'll look to see if any concepts came out before this thing with 3 exhaust tips (maybe it was this concept that I first saw it, dunno yet).

    I do like the fact that it's a MUCH smaller V10 than the Viper's and is similar in power. I love Yamaha and I think this motor will be an engineering masterpiece if it goes into production. As for performance, it's on par with a Viper ACR and surprisingly a tad better than the ZR1??? Again, amazed with what Yamaha can do :rofl:

    Saw it at Sema. It's pretty cool, yet nothing groundbreaking on the styling

    its better looking than either the slr mclaren OR the porsche carrerra gt... and you can buy two of the lexus for the same price as either of those...
    really.. NO car is worth that much.. youll never be able to drive any of them to their potential on any street
    hence they are called dream cars...
