That is because you don't really understand exactly what has gone into the car. There is no other supercar that mixes up high-tech engineering, lightweight technology, pure driver oriented dynamics down to the stiffest carbon fiber chassis in the business and luxury all in one package like the LFA. It has no direct competitors since no other car has so many things in one car.

That F1 racing car deriver V10 alone has beat out all the European supercars for the "best engine of the year".

The sound of that V10 is pretty much one of the best in any mainstream supercar out today and there are very few who disagree. It is like complete orchestra symphony. Lexus/Yamaha wanted to make sure it is hair raising.

Only the people who actually have driven it and it has earned nothing, but rave reviews around the track outperforming most of the other cars in its price category or cheaper such as, the Ferrari 599 GTB with HGTE, LP570-4, ZR-1, Turbo S, GTR, SLS AMG etc. in direct comparisons.

There is nothing in the world like the Lexus LFA. It is more special and intriguing than the 458 and demonstrates an extraordinary level of passion and commitment. Bespoke and limited edition, it is also a genuine supercar that can scare the pants off you. This is mainly thanks to it's extraordinary 552bhp 4.8-litre V10 that does everything a Carrera GT's does and then goes completely mad as it closes in on 9500rpm. Its uncompromising ride adds to the challenge, and it was generally agreed that it would have been a bit of a handful up on the moors,
but we were beguiled. "It's a beautiful thing, all the details, and it has the integrity and functionality of a Lexus. Feels like a step up from everything else here," said Meaden. "Very, very special," said Metcalfe. Thank you, Lexus.

"There is nothing out there that has felt this special since the Macca F1", says Chris Harris. "Too bad it has to go before it could be compared on the track with the best of the rest".
