Although the production version of the Lexus LF-A will make its official debut this October at the Tokyo Motor Show, there is a way that you can get behind the wheel of Lexus’s first ever super car today. All you need is a video game console and a copy of Need for Speed SHIFT. Judging from these photographs, it looks like the Lexus will be a playable vehicle in the upcoming racing simulator from EA Sports.
Need for Speed SHIFT is the latest offering from the NFS family of video games, in an attempt to change things up from the previous versions, SHIFT, will be a dedicated racing simulator. The game will feature 18 race tracks in all, with some patterned after actual circuits like the Nurburgring, Silverstone, Laguna Seca and Spa Francorchamps. It would be interesting to see if the LF-A could go around the ‘Ring for 24 hours in the video game without catching on fire.
