PARIS HILTON LEXUS LFA
How hot is is the brand-new Lexus LFA? Sizzling enough that it's right there with the supermodels in the new swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated.
In fact, the LFA could be the perfect car for Paris:
It's a high-performance car for a high-performance gal. The 4.8-liter V-10 develops 552 horsepower and has a top speed of 202 miles per hour.
It's easy to shift in high heels. The LFA comes with paddle shifters, so Paris may risk breaking a nail but that's a small price to pay for breathtaking acceleration.
Just like her, it's plastic. The body of the LFA is carbon fiber to reduce weight, none of that annoying steel or aluminum. If you want heavy metal, think Ozzie.
LFA couldn't be more exclusive. There's just one Paris Hilton, thankfully. And there will only be 500 LFAs, each one hand built.

Toyota GT86 (Scion FR-S) review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/toyota/gt-86/coupe/review
The Toyota GT86 has been charged with injecting a little excitement into the Japanese brand's dull and dependable image. Developed in partnership with Subaru, the rear-wheel drive coupe promises to mix driving fun with great value for money. The GT 86 is priced at around £25,000, and is aimed squarely at entry-level versions of the evergreen Audi TT. While the Toyota isn't as attractive as the sleek Audi or muscular Nissan 370Z, it still has the ability to turn heads. And what the interior lacks in quality and cutting edge design, it more than makes up for with generous standard kit. But the GT86 is car that demands to be driven rather than looked at. Sharp and engaging handling, a characterful 2.0-litre flat four petrol engine and strong brakes help make the Toyota a number one choice for back road blasts.

King of Drift: Keiichi Tsuchiya drives the Toyota GT86
With the launch of the Toyota GT86 well under way, we've discovered a brand new sport that will give us the chance to race our new GT86 against the clock.
Called Drift Sprint, we developed the challenge with the help of "Drift King" Keiichi Tsuchiya, who joined us earlier this year to approve the course.
Our track has also been fine tuned with help from Autocar's Steve Sutcliffe and Top Gear Magazine's Ollie Marriage -- both highly capable drivers.
As our video shows, the idea is simple. Racing against clock, a combination of car control and raw speed is needed to complete the course as quickly as possible.
For a 'behind the scenes' look at this video, read our recent post on the Official Toyota Blog: http://blog.toyota.co.uk/behind-the-scenes-with-drift-king-keiichi-tsuchiya-and-the-toyota-gt86.
Test driving toyota 86@fuji speedway oct 2011
2011年10月某日 早朝の富士スピードウェイで初試乗。6速MTモデルで3周連続ラップの模様。スタート後1周目はグリップ走行。2周目からVSCoffでドリフトコントロールをチェック。ステアリングの動きと周囲の景色で感じ取ってください。タイヤは215/45R17のミシュランPRIMACY.プリウスに装着される同銘柄同サイズ。タイヤに依存しない走りが開発の基本ポリシー。ちなみにBS POTENZA RE011も試したが、サーキットに限れば断然こっちという感じだった。

Toyota 86 test drive video, AE86 Fuji Speedway, onboard camera! #lovecars
Toyota 86 test drive from beginning and AE86 test drive from 13:02 .
This is the first time I *officially* drove the new Toyota 86 so I took a video of it. Driving two laps **AROUND** Fuji Speedway territory (not on the actual circuit), which is HUGE. Then one lap with Toyota AE86 Corolla.
This was the craziest day of my trip in Japan. Lots of car activities, including passenger drifting in turbo AE86, passenger ride in Lexus ISF CCS-R with Akihiko Nakaya ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqPZFQWC2q0 ). At the Fuji drift circuit was a small event for media, so AE86 club came to drift and also Keiichi Tsuchiya was drifting the Toyota FT86. I also met mr. Tetsuya Tada and other people from TRD team which were very kind and open to talk about 86 and its future.
Many thanks to Tada-san and Toyota team for letting me drive their cars, and special thanks to Manabu Kawaguchi of http://www.lovecars.jp !!
Lots of videos coming up, stay tuned!
