You wanna know how a supercar should be driven, you hand it over to a race driver.
That’s what Lexus have done for the LFA’s new promo video, and asked Alexander Wurz to do the honors.You may not remember Alex from his racing days in Formula 1, but he also has two Le Mans wins in his resume. The guy knows how to handle beasty cars.
The heart of the Lexus LFA is a bespoke, naturally aspirated V10 engine that sets new standards for compact dimensions, lightweight architecture and scintillating performance.
The V10 produces 480Nm of torque at 6,800rpm, 90 per cent of which is available from 3,700rpm all the way to the 9,000rpm red line, thanks to Dual VVT-i technology, equal length exhaust manifolds and high-volume, 12-hole fuel injectors. This gives searing in-hear acceleration at all engine speeds and in any gear: nought to 62mph takes just 3.7 seconds and maximum speed is 202mph.
