To be honest, words can't begin to describe how this video makes me feel. But off the top of my head, I can think of a few. Envious, queasy, and excited. In no particular order of importance or preference.

For most, dark clouds and wet roads means anything but taking your $375,000 super car out for a spin, let alone performing a brutally delicate waltz and leaving dozens of dark circular streaks on the pavement.

Just listen in as the engine screams and bumps against the 4.8-liter V10's 9,000 RPM redline, and the tires squeal desperately to find traction on the wet tarmac. The front tires eventually find some semblance of stability, and the fiery red LFA immediately hooks into a series of tightly wound donuts that prompt the driver to raise his arms up triumphantly in the air.

Damn it, I wish they'd bring this car back. As of now, the LFA has no successor planned, but with a new 5.0 liter V8 in Lexus' stables in the acclaimed RC F , supercar level concepts in the works, and a strong push towards Toyota Racing's developments, we're confident something amazing will be just around the bend.
