Lexus’s new LFA is not just a supercar, it is a drug. Superior engineering and careful planning by Lexus have given the LFA an addictive personality.
An absolute beast on the tar, the Lexus LFA effortlessly steals the show but be polite and smile and wave at other drivers as they are almost permanently viewed through your rear view mirror.
The LFA has been hand built. Each V10 engine is hand-assembled by a single engineer. A nice touch that has been thrown in to the mix is, every LFA is affixed with a special placard showing its sequence number among the only 500 units that have been built.
In all likelihood if you are interested in cars such as these, speed is right up your alley and man oh man, does this car deliver. It has a top speed of 340km/h and does 0 to 100km in a microscopic 3.7 seconds. The hand-built 4.8 litre V10 engine delivers 412kW of power and 480Nm of torque, powerful to say the least.
The LFA’s acoustics, induction system and exhaust notes have been specially tuned to deliver an exhilarating soundtrack, both outside and inside the cabin. Referred to by the acoustic team as “Octave Harmony”, it is inspired by the sound of a Formula 1 engine at full revs, making fantasies of Monaco pitstops a regular occurance..
In addition this car contains a lot of special features. A ride in the LFA will redefine your perception of driving-exhilarating and heart thudding to say the least.
