The Stig's just taken the Lexus LFA for a spin 'round the Top Gear track. No word yet on official times, but anyone in the studio audience want to let us know whether it's faster than the Gumpert Apollo? UPDATE!

Lexus UK PR now claims: "The Lexus LFA might (I did not say is) be slower around Top Gear test track than the R500, but the driver will be dry :-)"

So it might be slower than the Caterham Seven R500's 1:17.9 around the test track? If the LFA actually is slower than that, it just means it's not in the top five. [@LexusPR]
