Lexus LFA vs IS-F track test video: Lexus LFA vs IS-F

New Lexus LFA V10 supercar displays power on track run with IS-F V8 sports saloon sibling

The first full-production Lexus LFA supercar in the country finally made its debut UK track appearance, jousting against its high performance IS-F sibling.

During a special event at Bruntingthorpe proving ground, the V10 Japanese two-seater showed off its power and speed, after wowing crowds earlier this month at the Goodwood Supercar Sunday Breakfast Club.

Its 4.8 litre V10 boasts 552bhp, 354lb ft of torque and a screaming 9000 rpm redline, enough to transform the 417bhp V8 IS-F into a mere spectator.

Showcasing a 0-60mph of 3.5sec and a top speed of over 200mph, this display must have heartened the 500 owners-to-be, who have already paid a deposit on the £336,000 supercar and have seen delivery dates pushed back because of production difficulties.
