As we await the debut of what might be the most anticipated Toyota product of all time with the FT-86, here’s a very cool look at another one of the company’s big projects. This film covers the entire history and development of the Lexus LFA from the idea stage to finished product.

A very interesting watch to say the least.

Found over on Autoblog.

This video puts the GT-R in a total new light. It is astonishing to think that a 2011 $90,000 GT-R is only 10 seconds slower than the $375,000 LFA at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Mr Kazutoshi Mizuno (GT-R head engineer) stated that a new 2012- edition of the GT-R would at least shave another 7-8 seconds off that time of 7:24. LFA is a wonderful piece of engineering but i think the GT-R is even better in terms of price / second @ the Nür. LFA is $864.05 / second and the 2011 GT-R is under 1/4 the price at $202,70 / second.


Interesting vid showing how much effort and time went into the production of this car. Interesting to see how it's development trickled down to define the rest of the brand.



The last thing this video link needs is a reminder of how much the GT-R can do for the money.

Also, thanks for that wonderful piece of math at the end, cherry on top. Just sayin'.


It's very interesting to see how long has it taken for a major car manufacturer that at first started ceasing their sport models for conventional and hybrid cars, want to give the Japanese sport car industry back into the sport car game. And this was even done before Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Suzuki, and even Isuzu (!) left their award winners for crap. I just know Toyota would do anything to get Japan back on it's feet when it comes to the sport car industry,

And that's why I love the Lexus LFA.
