Thumbs up Lexus LF-A Leaked... (Supra anyone?)

http://www.autoblog.com/2009/10/20/v...ing/#continued



http://blogs.thecarconnection.com/ma...odays-car-news

Quote:
In less than six hours the wraps will officially come off the Lexus LF-A at the Tokyo Motor Show. And about 36 hours after that, we'll be piloting Lexus' first foray into supercardom on and around Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway.

But in this day and age, any auto expo wouldn't be complete without one last leak in the final hours leading up to the show, and YouTube – along with the NAGTROC forums -- have delivered.

After the jump you'll find video of the production LF-A making its way around the Nurburgring GP course, along with a slew of still shots that show the Lexus 500+ hp supercoupe sans disguise. Although we've seen everything aft of the A-pillars before, the LF-A's nose is finally revealed – and opinions are split on the chosen headlamp and fascia design. Although we could do without the red-leather steering wheel, the rest of the interior receives high marks, particularly the animated, customizable central LCD display and massive tunnel running through the cabin. And if the video wasn't enough, NAGTROC forum member Adrey has snapped a few shots of the LF-A in Miami as it's being prepped for our big day this week. Expect our First Drive soon, and all the official details to drop in the next few hours. But in the meantime, check the video after the jump and the spy shots from Miami in the gallery below.

try more than triple....


Although, I'm glad Japan is coming up with another supercar. Now they need a sports sedan that doesn't suck as much as the IS-F does.

Have a look at how much torque a V10 M5 puts out..

These high-revving motors aren't torque monsters...none of them are..

I don't believe this is the new Supra, its Toyota's Halo car and a level in price and quality above the Supra. If they make a new Supra, it'll still be RWD but a more affordable car than this, and prob closer to 300 hp like the original.

Oh its a Supra all right...

A $100,000+ Lexus version of what the Supra could have been had they kept making it

But really, the first impression I get of this car is Uber-Supra. Similar roof line, similar front end, HUGE rear spoiler (but retractable this time)... It won't be named Supra of course, but hey, the new GT-R is about as close to the old GT-R as this is from the old Supra

^ This. ^

The LF-A has about as much in common with the Supra as the Mustang GT does with the Ford GT. Less actually, as the engine isn't even remotely similar.

Let's hope they actually incorporate some driver feedback and "soul" into this. The GTR is a bit of an appliance.
