Aventador is ugly

Murcielago is best

LFA is more for an understated refinement

Aventador is just ***** to the walls look at me now or I'll destroy you.

They are both exotic in their own right, so hows the Aventador do around the ring?

Would it even matter, LOL? It's interesting all the things the Lexus has to prove to certify it's worth whereas cars like this have it easy.

Evo recently criticized it heavily for the bad understeer. Even when the LP670-4 SV was around, Lamborghini used to promote the LP570-4 SL as the most track oriented Lambo of the day.

What's the correlation between his statement versus Lexus having to prove themselves? I'm curious to know the Aventador's time on the ring too (if it was ever recorded) simply because it's interesting to know.

Amazing competition between 2 amazing cars. I honestly can't pick the better car.

Seems like they considered the LFA to be more engaging to drive than the Lambo.

You would have to be a big fanboi to choose one over the other. Car enthusiasts will take both

Yeehaa, that's my favourite photo of the year. Got to love the R Napoleon.
That LF-A shot was by Greg Pajo. Superb photographer, top bloke. Love being part of shoots that create stuff like that.
Great privilege to have those cars on those roads. Pajo more than did it justice. Could drive that LFA all day and night."

So just see the LFA more than hold its own and be the true DRIVERS CAR compared to the European Elite is just mind blowing. It shows this is one of the greatest cars ever made.

Lexus vs Ferrari and Lambo...amazing just to read it!

Considering how well its been received would love to see a LFB

i am so excited to read about this. it's great that the lfa continues to be the car to drive, that's what lexus aimed for with the car and this shows lexus is capable of doing exactly that, even when it's at the caliber of exotic supercar level. fantastic!!!!!!!
