Lexus is still enjoying ripping the corners up on the Nurburgring in it’s all new 2011 Lexus LFA Super Car. Wouldn’t you want to draw out every last moment in the high performance monster if you were in the testing department? Also, this would seem to signal that Lexus is serious about entering the super car market, making sure everything on the LFA is up to big spenders expectations.
Truly, it is a shame, that I will never set foot on the gas pedal of the LFA beast. If I did have the estimated $200,000 to drop, it would probably be on this V-10 500 horsepower luxury monster. Consider it a budget minded super rich mans car, considering it’s closes competitor, the Ferrari F430 is priced at over twice as much.
I’ll be interested in seeing if the production photos are true to form, once it finally hits the sales floor. It’s a little different than the one seen on the Nurburgring, so perhaps we’ll see a special sport or racing trim. No doubt this package would put it closer to the Ferrari’s price tag, but no further from my grasp. 😛
When we originally saw the Lexus LFA it was slightly toned down as far as aesthetics. I’m glad to see the production model will look more like a Lexus, but pack a nasty punch.
