A tribute to one of our favorite cars: The Lexus LFA.
The Lexus LFA is powered by a naturally aspirated V10 displacing 4.8 litre, matched to a rear-mounted six-speed sequential automatic transmission, giving 200mph-plus performance. From the outset it was determined the engine should have a 4,805cc capacity, develop 552bhp and rev to a wailing 9,000rpm red line. The V10 produces 480Nm of torque at 6,800rpm, 90 per cent of which is available from 3,700rpm all the way to the 9,000rpm red line, thanks to Dual VVT-i technology, equal length exhaust manifolds and high-volume, 12-hole fuel injectors. This gives searing in-hear acceleration at all engine speeds and in any gear: nought to 62mph takes just 3.7 seconds and maximum speed is 202mph.
