Rumors have been flying around that the Lexus LF-A will be unveiled at this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon, and this spy shot might just prove that the Japanese automaker is serious about bringing a super car to the table by 2011. The Lexus LF-A has been spotted again testing at the famed Nurburgring test track in Germany.

Due to the fact that Honda has canceled their NSX efforts, the future 500 HP Lexus will only have one other domestic super car to compete with, the Nissan GT-R. Their battle should rival that of Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla.

The model running around the ‘Ring in black camouflage should be much closer to a production version than the LF-A Concept that was unveiled at the Detroit show in 2005 and the updated version of the LF-A sports car we saw in 2007. If all goes well expect that the open-air LF-A Roadster will be in showrooms as early as 2012.

I would love to see how this so-called mecha-Godzilla will perform once record becomes official. It’s the only way we can determine if this car fits the recognition.

Ferraris don’t compare to the look of this beauty/beast.

I don’t see reason between this two domestic super cars competing as for sure their real arch rivals are the European car makers whom the Japanese would like to beat with their technology

Japan is a small country with small highways, but with super speed cars in its streets. This LF-A vs GT-R thing only means one thing, next to Europe, we have the Japanese proving to us, that one doesn’t need big highways to build fast cars.
