It has long been rumored that BMW was considering plans for a supercar to celebrate the brand’s centennial next year — rumors including shacking up with the likes of McLaren, Lexus, or even developing a super-i8. Well it looks like it isn’t happening, because BMW hates birthdays and wishes you would stop bringing it…
When Audi launched the R8 it helped pull the brand up to become just as powerful as the other two German luxury juggernauts. Mercedes has long used AMG for their sportier models, leaving BMW looking like it had a missing link at the top of the range. Well not anymore! Maybe.
I was pleasantly surprised last week to learn that the 2014 Lexus IS, unlike most Lexuses, is not a total snoozemobile. It's actually pretty good. But it's got nothing on this bad boy: the 553-horsepower Lexus LFA.
Toyota brought ten models to this year's Tokyo Auto Salon, including two racecars, four FR-S/GT86 concepts, two rebodied JDM cars and two racecar wannabes.
While the made-to-order Lexus LFA has sold out in June, it took Toyota's Motomachi plant another six month to make the #500 V10 supercar.
At the Lexus Spindle Night in Tokyo earlier this month, Lexus took three LFAs and went to do some synchronized drifting set to music. Now this is some ballet that we can enjoy.
We knew it was only a matter of time before someone crashed a Lexus LFA. The wait is over. This example of the Lexus supercar appears to have torn off the front clip and smashed up the rear. The car was recently sold, and we hope the next owner is a bit more respectful of the LFA's sharp handling and lightning-fast…
Buying the Lexus LFA means eschewing speed records, famous lap times, and revered genealogy. All at cost somewhere near $500K. It means either having great taste or awful taste. Buying a brown one puts you firmly in the former category.
If these three pictures don't get you excited about the 24 hours of Nürburgring, we think you may be at the wrong website. The guys from Drivecult captured a few of the very drool worthy cars that will be racing at today's 24 Hours of Nürburgring during qualifying runs yesterday.
When Jaguar first showed its mind-crushing XJ220 prototype to prospective buyers at the 1988 British Motor Show, it had a V12. When the car finally rolled up to buyers' estates, it had a twin-turbo six from an MG Metro 6R4 Group B rally car. Awesome, for sure, but not a V12, and buyers bailed.
NASCAR driver Kyle Busch, who is currently third in the Sprint Cup standings, was charged with reckless driving this afternoon for driving 128 mph in a 45 mph zone in what's being described as a "yellow Lexus sports car." Ahem, Lexus LFA. Update!.
As a test of supercar superiority, the Japanese show Best Motoring put five supercars — the Lexus LFA, Nissan GT-R, Porsche 911 GT2RS, Chevy Corvette ZR1 and Ferrari F430 RSD — in a three-lap race around Fuji Speedway. The winner is...
This video answers the question: "What if Lexus told driver Scott Pruett to take an LFA onto the track and see how much tire tread he could scrub into donuts?"
