Not that it matters much. When is this going to hit?

It almost looks like they are sporting the same wheels. The Ferrari's seem to have a bit more angle between the spoke pairs.

I think back in the 60s, the Toyota 2000 GT compete against the original Ferrari GTO so I think this might be their way of paying tribute to it.

If what you mean is when is this going to hit the news stand, it will be mid-september. Hopefully it will be here in Canada/US concurrently with Europe.

According to Lexus Europe's twitter, the LFA beats the GTO. http://twitter.com/#!/lexus_eu could be just fan fic though

Thanks for posting. How could they know so well in advance?? The magazine has not even been released yet??

However, it is coming directly from Lexus Europe so I don't think they would post without having any truth to it.

considering lexus europe probably assisted in providing the car for evo, not surprising if they got the results heads up.

awesome if the lfa gets higher points than the gto!

I am more interested in reading EVO's comments LOL, I always disregard points that magazines give to cars in comparisons, they can be manipulated to put ANY car on top if they so desire ......

I can't wait to read it. Evo UK has always been the best, most rational and objective publication from Europe. I have been reading their reviews for years and they never disappoint.

People at FerrariChat are going to have seizures and strokes over this. It is the halo Ferrari with a GTO badge on it. Conspiracy theories and Lexus paying British Evo UK etc. would all be thrown into the mix.

I can't wait to buy it. Still have to wait a couple more weeks. It is something that will go in my magazine collection for Lexus LFA.

Thanks Gojirra. Well deserved for the Lexus.

Too bad the cars were not tested on Bedford Autodrome track. I really wanted to see the LFA lap on Bedford.
