Video: Lexus LF-A Nurburgring Edition takes on the Eclipse 500 Jet

Video: Lexus LF-A Nurburgring Edition takes on the Eclipse 500 Jet

It’s not hard to have an ego about yourself if you’re a supercar. You belong to that elite class that represents the fastest and most powerful cars in the world. Naturally, you feel like you can take on just about any challenge that comes your way, even if said challenge involves a plane.

The Lexus LF-A Nürburgring Edition found out firsthand what happens when you decide that all comers are worthy opponents. In this video, the Japanese supercar went toe to toe – tire to wing, if you want to get specific – with an Eclipse 500 business jet.

Not one to lack in confidence, the Scott Pruett-driven LF-A went about and handled its business pretty impressively, beating the Eclipse 500 Jet by 2.1 seconds after posting a time of 56 seconds.

Of course, circumstances - like the jet’s steep bank turn on the last leg - might have caused some variables in this race to change. Be that as it may, the Eclipse 500 still had a 150 mph head start compared to the LF-A starting the race idle.

Now we need to see how the Lexus supercar handles its business against an F-22.

Video: Dodge Challenger SRT8 dukes it out with a McDonnel Douglass MD500

Video: Dodge Challenger SRT8 dukes it out with a McDonnel Douglass MD500

If you’re not too familiar with a McDonnel Douglass MD500, we certainly wouldn’t blame you. That’s because the MD500 is not a car; it’s a helicopter.

So what exactly is a helicopter doing on these pages? Well, if it engages in a race against a Dodge Challenger SRT8, then we’ll hold a special place for it here. The question of this race being fair at all is a matter of conjecture. But quite frankly, we don’t care if one dismantled the other in a fashion that seemed to be all too predictable.

What we enjoyed about this race was, for one, it’s a muscle car versus a helicopter. That in itself is worth the price of watching the whole three-minute video. The other thing is it has a surprise ending. We’re not going to spoil it for you because it’s really worth the watch. So sit back and enjoy the three-minute video.
