Rob Wray from mp3Car gets a first time view of the new Lexus LFA. This car is simply beautiful. It sports an LCD display screen that can control race times. It also has an automated manual transmission plus the standard Lexus in dash screen.
With 350 lbs of torque and 0-60 in about 3 seconds it may be worth the 375k price tag.
2011 Lexus LFA Engine Rev at SEMA Las Vegas 2009
Exclusive video after hours at the Lexus booth at SEMA 2009.

For those of you who are crazy about Lexus, you can download the ring tone on our forums.
Lexus LFA Road and Track Test
The new 2011 Lexus LFA gets tested on the road and on the Nurburgring GP circuit.
I still don't really know what to think about it, it's far too expensive for what it is. It's more expensive than any current production Lamborghini or Ferrari. I think it's a good car but it's not groundbreaking in any way and doesn't really warrant such a big price tag, despite being bespoke and a rare limited edition special. Edmunds say it is capable of a time of 7 minutes and 23 seconds, which softens the price blow slightly, but I can't see it being an immediate success and I can't see 'die hard Lexus fans' wanting one because I don't think they exist. It could be a classic in the future though.

Rare Video of the trunk compartment of the LF-A Lexus LFA
The Lexus Tech opened up the trunk lid which exposed a couple of compartments under the screen. One compartment which I saw, shows where the battery is housed. I also noticed a glass window between this trunk area and the cockpit of the car, which shows that there is really no real trunk space whatsoever.
