  1. drove the world in 7:24.

  2. awesome, it can glide on water too!!
  3. no
  4. LOL
  5. i'm having trouble waiting for this car
  6. source?
  8. It'll be fast, but not that fast. 7:30's probably.
  9. isnt there a video to to prove this LF-A really did 7:24?
  10. zomg no wai
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.

    LF-A Specifications
    Engine V10 (under 5.0-litres)
    Horsepower 500-plus
    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

    So all we know is that it will get a 500hp+ V10? Whats new there?
  16. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/disappointed.gif"></A>The C6 ZO6 gets 28 mpg gallon with a top speed of 198mph; would this be one of those other high power engines? Mpg Honda ecoboxs can and do also get [email protected]#% mpg as well with low horse power and a gross weight under 3000lbs.

    Lexus’s 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 Germany’s Nürburgring, with a time of seven minutes, 24 seconds. That beats Porsche’s 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.

  23. "4.8-litre...revs to 9,000rpm"
