drove the world in 7:24.
ITS THAT FAST.
awesome, it can glide on water too!!
i'm having trouble waiting for this car
It'll be fast, but not that fast. 7:30's probably.
isnt there a video to to prove this LF-A really did 7:24?
zomg no wai
its definitly doubtful.
since 1999-present when did Toyota/Lexus start caring for anything other than evnviromental or other pussy shit.
If this is true, then that means somewhere there is a news report of Richard Simmons finally coming out of the closet and admitting that he is a flaming homosexual.
because toyota is very enviromental they will realize they need a light rigid chassie to save on millage. pop in a nice engine that also saves some gas compaired to other high power engines (being high power itself tho). and you have a car that will produce some nice numbers.
Like their environmentally friendly Formula 1 team that's competing since 2002?
The new LF-A retains the original V10 engine anticipated to produce 500-plus horsepower. That horsepower, combined with superior aerodynamics and revised styling, is projected to generate a top speed of 322 km/h (200 mph). And to deliver exceptional high-speed handling and stability, optimum weight distribution is achieved by balancing the front mid-engine placement with rear-mounted radiators and transaxle.
Engine V10 (under 5.0-litres)
Top Speed Approx. 322 km/h (200 mph)
Wheelbase 2,598 mm (102.3 inches)
Overall Length 4,460 mm (175.6 inches)
Overall Width 1,895 mm (74.6 inches)
Overall Height 1,219 mm (48.0 inches)
Front Tires 265/35R20
Rear Tires 305/30R20
i didnt get a weight.
So all we know is that it will get a 500hp+ V10? Whats new there?
I worked for Toyota North America for 5 years...I can vouch for the company as well as anyone.
The Supra (as of early 2006) was undergoing another redevelopment. It's supposed to be a V6TT with about 450hp. The FT-HS was the 2nd in-house iteration.
that sounds pretty good.
there will be a V8 hybrid LF-A also! the hybrid will give alot of torque if im not mistaken. they already have the technology and its already pritty good, so it could work to be a great car but weight ballance might be a problem with batteries - OR it might actually help it depending on the placement of all that weight.
if its placed right like in the GT-R it can help the CF and downforce. airflow also matters and it looks like its gone through alot of windtunnel testing for that.
not so sure what the supra variant is going to be like at this moment, like said its been redeveloped many times since.

the 7:38 lap with the gtr was with a near production gtr not full production spec check it out here
its about 2:50 in if anyone is interested
Wake me up when any of this means something.
Lexuss 552bhp supercar is Ring leader
Lexus LF-A unofficially smashes lap record to become King of the Ring
28th December 2007
The king is dead, long live the king! Lexus long-awaited LF-A has unofficially smashed the lap record at Germanys Nürburgring, with a time of seven minutes, 24 seconds. That beats Porsches new GT2 by a second and makes the Lexus the King of the Ring. Company insiders have revealed that a 4.8-litre V10 co-developed with Yamaha powered the record-breaking test mule. It revs to 9,000rpm and pumps out 552bhp. Combined with a highly aerodynamic body, it should enable the LF-A to hit 210mph.
