Going to the dealer for service, such as an oil change, can be a real pain. You have to spend a good chunk of your day driving across town, filling out paperwork, and waiting. Imagine if you had to drive to another country, though. If you’re the owner of a Lexus LFA in Europe, that’s exactly what you have to do.
Lexus is taking a pair of cars to the 24 Hours of Nurburgring this year, and we just got some great footage of them in practice.
Just imagine, for a moment, what kind of car the Lexus GS F would be if they slapped a turbocharger onto the 5.0-liter V8. Dare to dream, because dreams can come true.
This video covers every aspect of the LFA build, from its initial inception as a car design, to the creation of the unique V10 engine, to the record-breaking Nurburgring run.
Neill Blomkamp, the South African director of such movies as “District 9″ and “Elysium,” recently told Motor Trend, “My mom says that some of the first words that I knew were car names.” In the years since his childhood, Blomkamp’s learned the name “Lexus LFA” – from his experience owning one.
