Very nice video. I liked the part where they say the analog cluster can not keep up with the revs of this car.

I love the car but I believe , the 2012 Nissan GTR is a bit faster. I hope Lexus make the LFA faster than the GTR.

Only in a straight line by a bit to the 1/4 mile due to the AWD launch with very high grip street tires gives it a very low 0-60 mph. which no RWD can match. LFA traps a few mph higher in the 1/4 mile.

At higher speeds, rolling starts and around the race track, LFA is quicker hands down. The tires on the LFA are its biggest problem. All LFA needs is some decent high grip tires to put down the power properly off the line.
