As you know the Lexus LF-A prototype was presented at the Nurburgring 24 hours race. And not for 24 hours, but just for a second the engineers opened the hood, but this was more than enough to take a picture of the engine. Here it is!

As previously speculated the engine will be a V10, but that’s pretty much we know about the car. Maybe we will find out more in October when the production version is supposed to be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show. Fingers crossed!

Gee, maybe thats because the GT-R is regarded as the best handling supercar of all time. The 911 turbo is twice as expensive but it can’t hold a candle to the GT-Rs handling and acceleration. And in case you didn’t notice, the GT-R was the first attempt at a supercar by Nissan. True there were the older Skylines but they were held back by the gentlemans agreement but they still featured the best AWD features around. And even with 276hp the R33 GT-R lapped the Nurburgring in 8 minutes. That is why Iam just saying, If the handling is remotely similiar, the Italian powerhouse better watch out. Literally its impossible for a supercar to leave another in the dust but in terms of tecnology and handling, its quite possible.

I doubt the LF-A will leave its competition in dust. Especially being the first attempt. I expect it to do well but not leave anyone "in the dust" And why the handling comparison to the GTR? where did that come from?

Agree or not, Lexus has a reputation of providing more than its competitors. They have done so in the luxury department and if they are charging 250 grand, Iam willing to bet the new supercar will leave the "Italian Powerhouses" in the dust. If its handling is even remotely similiar to the GT-R, I can see it destroying every supercar in sight.

And again , lke it or not, the design is waaaaay better than any Italian supercar.

wow. i don’t agree. I’m anxious to see some more info on the LF-A before I would compare it to a Italian powerhouse.

If I had a 1/4 million, I’d place an order for the Lexus LF-A. This car is way better than those dumbass Ferrari’s and any of the other German crap.
