What do you get when a carmaker like Toyota decides to combine the performance knowledge of its racing division with the refinement and exclusivity of its luxury brand? The Lexus LFA: a nearly $400,000 supercar with power and technology oozing from its many gills. The LFA may carry a civilized Lexus badge on its hood, but underneath, its 552 hp V10 engine is anything but. Oh, and did we mention it's offered in an understated hue of eye-melting yellow?

TRANSLOGIC 58: Porsche 911 GT3 RS
It's no secret that some of the most technologically advanced cars aren't those parked in our garages; rather, they're the ones flying around the racetrack. But, what about that rare breed of automobile that's both track-tuned and road-legal? Enter Porsche's 911 GT3 RS. "This is a race car with a license plate" according to our guest, Porsche factory driver Patrick Long.
Jetlev R200: TRANSLOGIC 62 | Aol Autos
The term "jet pack" commonly conjures science fiction imagery of brave pilots with rockets strapped to their backs, propelled through the sky by afterburners full of fire and fury. But, what if we replaced those hot flames with cool jets of water, and swapped the fictitious rocketeer for our own Bradley Hasemeyer? Introducing the water-propelled Jetlev R200.

TRANSLOGIC 7.1: Ferrari 599, SLR McLaren, & Audi R8 V10
Translogic has featured some of the most fuel-efficient cars in the world, but in this episode we're looking at a different class of efficiency: performance. Bradley drives the Ferrari 599 GTB, Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, and the Audi R8 V10 to see what these supercars can teach us about efficient tech.
TRANSLOGIC 55: LAPD Chevy Caprice PPV
Taking a ride in a police squad car is typically an unenviable experience, but not today. Bradley teams up with our friends at the LAPD to check the tech on the all new Chevrolet Caprice PPV (Police Patrol Vehicle). From an infrared night vision camera to an automated license plate scanner, this Caprice cop car puts Robocop's '86 Taurus LX to shame.
TRANSLOGIC 30: SEMA + X Prize Winners
SEMA may be best known for its outlandish display of aftermarket bling, but we went in search of some legitimate tech. We found the Mission One PLE electric sportbike, Wattshocks regenerative suspension system, and the winners of the automotive X Prize.

High-res photos: http://www.worldcarfans.com/111090736364/lexus-confirms-lfa-nrburgring-lap-time-of-714-video
We now have the official track time for the Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition.
Driver Akira Iida clocked a lap time of 7:14.64 on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife on August 31. The special edition LFA did it using its standard-issue (road-legal) Bridgestone Potenza RE070 tires.
The LFA Nürburgring Package is scheduled to go into a limited-run production in 2012. Only 50 units will be from a total LFA production run of 500 models.
The Nürburgring Edition of the LFA comes with a carbon fiber body kit, a re-tuned suspension and an upgraded 6-speed sequential gearbox. It is powered by a 4.8-liter V10 engine with 562 hp (419 kW / 570 PS) - the standard LFA has an output of 412 kW (560 PS). The complete package costs an additional $70,000 but delivers a 0-100 km/h sprint of just 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
