When Lexus set out to create a proper halo model, no one really expected them to give the world a car as good as the LFA.
It’s a proper supercar, the LFA. It was the first car to feature a digital instrument panel but not because it was a cool thing to have back in 2011 but because the engine is so rev-happy that an analog rev counter simply couldn’t keep up.
Speaking of the engine, it has a bespoke naturally aspirated, dry-sumped 4.8-litre V10 that produces 552hp and a soundtrack straight from heaven. Top speed is set at 202mph.
With only 500 LFAs ever made, finding one is not that easy. Doug de Muro however managed to secure one for his latest video, showing us all the exquisite details of the Japanese superstar.
Things like the seatbelt mechanism or the controls of the electronically adjusted seats really reveal the immense level of thought that went into the little details of the Lexus LFA. Even the turn-signal stalk is a thing of beauty, with a minimal design and mounted in the perfect position behind the shift paddle.
After all, the devil is in the details, right?
