We got the opportunity to get a close look at the Lexus LFA earlier this year. We learned a lot about the car and the engineering behind it. We were told that for a supercar, the LFA is comfortable and easy to drive. It is a car you can daily drive and not feel like you are driving a high performance vehicle that blasts through a Nurburgring lap in 7:14. But talking to those who have first hand experience in driving the LFA, they all agree that if you hit the downshift paddle and push the gas pedal to wide open throttle, the engine comes alive and screams to the 9,000 RPM redline. They said that the engine response is incredible and exhaust note is similar to that of an F1 car. This just gives you a glimpse into the kind of engineering that went into creating the LFA.
Lexus LFA LCD gauges. Feel likes a video game because you can toggle through the different gauges. But the real reason for LCD is because the engine response is too fast for the traditional needle gauge.
