Video: Top Gear drives the Lexus LF-A

It came as no surprise when the BBC’s acclaimed automotive crew at Top Gear got behind the wheel of the all new Lexus LF-A super car. Spending over 9 years on the drawing board, the LF-A is virtually an engineer’s wet dream with a body painstakingly crafted from carbon fiber and the bark of an F1 car, however it still wears a Lexus badge, a fact that Richard Hammond had quite a hard time getting over.

Powered by a purpose built 4.8 Liter V10 that is the size of a V8 and weighs about as much as a V6, the 560 HP LF-A can rocket from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 202 MPH. The super car’s interior is filled with trick items like a single large diameter digital gauge and carbon fiber steering wheel as well as a lightweight stereo system that is guaranteed to make any of the 500 lucky owners able to plop down nearly half a Million dollars for one fell like a kid in a candy store.

The changes they have made are significant. It looked more stylish, but still, with full efficiency. Family getaway will just look more exciting because of this car.

I don’t see any reason why you will not consider a supercar like that. For the driving perspective, really smooth, comfortable by means of the multi-functional steering wheel and automatic button for showing/hiding the rear wing. I’m really impressed on that video.

Well, it’s got the Gallardo’s cylinders and the 599’s power, it’s got the speed of the Aston Martin DBS but the price of a uber exotic hypercar.
