Undeniably the new Lexus LFA is a affair of beauty. The able-bodied and glossy new Lexus supercar boasts 552 application at 8,700 RPM, a 4.8-liter V10 agent and 354 lb.-ft of torque at 6,800 RPM. It goes after adage this car is a dream to drive. Read on for the contiguous anniversary of the experience.
I was aflame as I fabricated my way appear the Fontana Speedway, area I would be analysis active the new and absurd Lexus LFA . Any racecar fan will acknowledge my agog apprehension of benumbed shotgun with disciplinarian Scott Pruett.
If you do not chase automotive news, acquiesce me to accord it to you straight: this is the aboriginal and alone Lexus supercar. In actuality the abutting that any car comes to the LFA aural the Toyota ancestors of assembly cars is the Supra, yes, the Supra.
After accession at the racetrack, I was greeted by the sounds of a Yamaha-tuned Lexus supercar aerial about the speedway. Alone a scattering of individuals were present on that contrarily quiet morning. The affectionate accident consisted of alone a few journalists, publicists and Bruce Jenner, longtime acquaintance and assistant of Scott Pruett. After assimilation up the authentic adorableness of the LFA, I adapted myself with a fireproof awning and helmet and jumped in.
The autogenous of the LFA hugs you about as able-bodied as the car hugs the road. Drivers accept the adeptness to adapt the birr to clothing their affection and active needs: you can toggle amid WET, AUTO and SPORT mode, artlessly ill-fitted to accomplish you feel like you are active a chase car, or NORMAL mode, which is tailored to the added accustomed drive. Similarly, owners can accept to drive and shift, or acquiesce the car to change apparatus automatically. Artlessly the LFA is not the arrangement of auto to action above block space, about buyers do accept two pieces of Tumi baggage as a allowance with purchase, custom fabricated to fit altogether in the amplitude that is there.
After my quick bout of the cockpit, Scott inquired as to my abundance with speed. I told him to accessible it up; he took me to a heart-pounding 177 mph (the LFA’s top acceleration is 202). He was nice abundant to apathetic bottomward to about 135 on bound turns. It was bigger than any roller coaster I can anticipate of; the adrenaline blitz is superb. Wishing I could accept ridden alongside Scott for the majority of the day, I accurately emerged from the supercar and absent my abode to the abutting journalist. Before continued it was my about-face again: this time I was abaft the wheel. The LFA alcove 60mph in 3.6 seconds, so artlessly I hit 100 with aught effort.
When I had the joy of test-driving the LFA there were alone two in the United States. A decade in the making, the LFA has been boring apparent during auto shows throughout the world; a awful advancing car that enthusiasts accept looked advanced to for years. Fabricated in Japan, the new Lexus supercar is already active up to its name: LFA stands for Lexus Future Auto. The 6-speed, distinct clutch, paddle-shifting auto is gorgeous. Every car fabricated is hand-built with an arrangement of colors and interiors available. Lexus has declared they will accomplish alone 500 LFAs, with alone about 170 of them destined for the US, authoritative them one of the best enviable cartage on the road.
The cars’ bumpers are complete of aluminum, authoritative them accessible to adjustment should the charge arise. Paired with a Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic anatomy and chassis, the aggregate contributes to the LFA’s ultra-low 3,263lb barrier weight. A few of the LFAs (around 25 in total) will be accessible as the Nürburgring Edition, which will run you a air-conditioned 70k extra. Springing for the advancement gets you atramentous cobweb auto with committed high-grip tires, a sport-tuned abeyance and for bigger handling: a beyond advanced addle-brain forth with a anchored rear accession that artlessly improves the cars’ aerial acceleration bottomward force. Charge one added acumen to acquirement the bound copy LFA? According to Lexus, “In accession to the Nürburgring agent specifications, a amalgamation of appropriate privileges is included in affiliation with the Nürburgring advance itself. The allowances comprise, but are not bound to, clandestine parking, co-pilot ride, one night at the Lindner Congress and Motorsport Hotel Nürburgring, clandestine training with Nürburgring arch active instructor, a Nürburgring branded jacket, as able-bodied as a one-year anniversary canyon accurate for active on the Nordschleife and acceptance to ring°werk leisure park.”
The Finish Line: the LFA is an amazing allotment of machinery, lets leave it at that. Secure one now, they are activity to go fast. Not that they don’t already. The Lexus LFA starts at $375,000. See the abounding blueprint from Lexus.
