Unleash the LFA - Lexus [HD video]
Lexusvehicles has released an teaser video for their upcoming clip, which will feature a mighty LFA sports car and a professional race driver on a closed course. Of course, the manufacturer warns everybody "Do not attempt", so we expect something spectacular like drifts, burnouts and more interesting sequences.
The Lexus LFA is one of the fastest cars in the world. It is powered by a 4.8 liter naturally aspirated V10 engine equipped with dual VVT-I. It has 560HP (412 kW) at 8700RPM and 480Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque at 6800RPM. The red line is at whopping 9500RPM. The engine has forged aluminum pistons, forged titanium connecting rods, and solid titanium valves.
The curb weight of the vehicle is just 1 480kg (3 263 lbs), so the performance is sensational. 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 326 km/h (203 mph). Power-to-weight ratio is 2,64kg / hp. The more interesting 0-200 km/h discipline is covered in 11.4 seconds and ¼ mile in 11.6 seconds with 201 km/h (125 mph) terminal speed.
The Nürburgring Package LFA was tested at the Nürburgring in June 2011. Driven by Akira Iida, the LFA set a time of 7:22.85.
The price for the toy is $375 000.
