In its latest episode Fifth Gear put its hands on the brand new Lexus LF-A supercar. Behind the wheel was who other than Tiff Needell who seemed to really enjoy what he was doing! But we can’t really blame him, can we?

Lexus LF-A supercar is powered by a 4.8 liter V10 engine that delivers a maximum output of 560 HP at 9,000 RPM and a peak torque of 354 lb-ft at 6,800 RPM, with 90% of the total torque being available between the 3,700 RPM mark and the super car’s 9,000 RPM red line. As a result of such a road torque curve, the LF-A can sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.7 seconds and won’t stop until it reaches a top speed of 202 MPH.

Check out Tiff Needell’s full review of the Lexus LF-A in the two videos provided and let us know your impressions of the car.

One more video after the jump.
