In October 2012, Lexus staged a race as a result of a charity bet between pilot Marc Arnold and Kent Stevinson to race a Lexus LFA against an Eclipse 500 jet. The top speed of the LFA is 203 mph while the Eclipse 500 can reach speeds of 400 mph. In order to make it a fair test to measure acceleration, handling, braking, according to Paul Williamson the race took place on a 4800 feet runway. The plane was given a head start of about 110 mph with the Lexus LFA launching from a dead stop as the jet flew by at 110 mph. As the race begun, the plane started accelerating from 110 mph and Lexus LFA launched from a dead stop. Both accelerated to the end of the runway where the LFA will have to brake and turn around with the plane turning around as well. Then it was a race all the way back to the starting line with the LFA needing to brake before the plane in order for the Lexus LFA to win the race. The proceeds of the win were to benefit charities. Lexus decided to choose the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition for the race and professional race car driver and champion Scott Pruett was selected as the driver for the Lexus LFA. Once the race was complete, the Lexus LFA was able to win through completing the race including a full dead stop at the end before the plane cleared the finish line 2 seconds ahead of the Eclipse 500 jet. The Lexus LFA hit a maximum speed of 171 mph before it hit the braking zone.

In November 2011, Car Magazine conducted a comparison test between Lexus LFA and Lamborghini Aventador. The Aventador had a 139 HP advantage over the Lexus LFA. However, Lexus LFA weighs almost 230 kg less. The magazine had established the Lexus LFA engine as the better of the two going as far as saying that ” is powered by the best engine this side of Paul Rosche’s masterpiece in the back of a McLaren F1.” Regarding the exterior look of the Lexus LFA, editor commented “To me LFA is a glorious looking car – beautifully proportioned and meticulously finished and with drama in every crease and curve”. Once the editors had the cars on mountain roads, clearly Lexus LFA seemed to make a very positive impression on the editors as they commented “The way the Aventador quickly reverses in my rearview mirror, my guess was not far off”. ” zings between hairpins and then peels cleanly into them, front end assured, but never artificially pointy and the rear noticeably wants to edge just a few degreess wide as the V10 feeds the rear tires with its buzzsaw power”. In the end in terms of sheer driving enjoyment, the editors were clear that Lexus LFA was the more enjoyable car of the two. Car Magazine awarded the win to the Lamborghini primarily because of its higher exterior visual drama and also sheer 139 more horsepower of the Aventador over the Lexus LFA.

In the second episode of Season 19, Hammond, Clarkson and May took a trip across the US with Clarkson selecting the Lexus LFA as the car of his choice, May selecting Aston Martin Vanquish for his choice and SRT Viper for Hammond. In various events in the episode, all three participated in burn out contests as well as a drag racing event at the Las Vegas speedway where Clarkson in the Lexus LFA beat the Viper and Vanquish in head to head drag races. The episode concluded with a race across America to the Mexican border with the loser being given the task to review the first ever Mexican sports car in the following episode. Hammond in this race with the Viper had lost so he was given the task to do the review. Clarkson while summing up the Lexus LFA said “it is the best car I have ever driven” and claimed “if someone gave me a choice of selecting one car, I would have a blue Lexus LFA. That is how much I love this car”. While describing the traits of Lexus LFA, Clarkson described “The word immediate was invented for the throttle response of the Lexus LFA and for the steering, and the gearbox and just about everything else”.

Jay Leno in 2012 featured the LFA on his internet car enthusiast program Jay Leno’s Garage where he looked at in-depth features of the Lexus LFA including the carbon fiber construction, interior features and the engine. Leno heaped praises on the Lexus LFA engineering, attention to details and quality of work all around. Leno took the car for a test drive in the California mountains and had raving impressions of the LFA driving dynamics, handling, chassis rigidity and engine sound. Leno stated that the LFA was “one of the greatest supercars ever built and certainly the best supercar ever to have come out Japan”. Leno was very impressed with the LFA’s city driving abilities and thought it was a very “docile car around town”. Leno summarized the LFA as “certainly, there might be cars out there that could individually do things better than the LFA. Maybe a bit quicker or handling a bit better. But, no other car I know of does everything so extremely well”.

Car and Driver in November 2010 did a comparison test between the Lexus LFA and Ferrari 599 GTB HGTE with the US$30,000 additional handling package. The Lexus LFA won the comparison and was featured in full in the November 2010 magazine edition. The LFA was generally favored in the review as the more hardcore sports car while the 599 GTB was viewed as the GT car. The LFA out-accelerated the 599 HGTE from 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph) and the 402 m (1⁄4 mi) with times of 3.6 seconds and 11.7 seconds at 201 km/h (125 mph) respectively while the 599 HGTE recorded a 0—60 mph in 3.8 seconds and  1⁄4 mile in 11.8 seconds at 201 km/h (125 mph). Both cars were tested using their full launch control systems. The reviewers praised the Lexus engine, technology, luxury, chassis and suspension calling it a ‘rocketship’. Their comments on LFA were “The Lexus feels more athletic than the Ferrari, and its performance is more accessible, more immediately. The engine is remarkable. Austin noted: “They  figured out the engine. It’s really strong, and then you hit about 6500 rpm and your eyes get all big as the power hits another level.” The only street-car engine that matches this one for smoothness, ecstatic noise, and power delivery is the 458 Italia’s”. The conclusion of Car and Driver was “if Lexus puts this much passion in every one of its cars, it will simply be unbeatable.”

2012 Lexus LFA Details Interior The Lexus LFA backs up its luxury credentials with leather and Alcantara surfaces, satellite navigation and a 12-speaker Mark Levinson premium audio unit. Directly in front of the driver, a high-tech LCD display displays speed, RPM and other information. Colorful leather, carbon-fiber trim and plenty of metal abound in this hand-built 2-seater. A 7-inch screen conveys information for audio, navigation and other functions. The driver controls many of them using a computer mouse-like module that sits at the front of the armrest. The seats, meanwhile, are deeply bolstered to keep driver and passenger as planted as the car. Exterior Even among exotic cars, the Lexus LFA stands out. Part supercoupe, part jet fighter, the LFA’s exterior design is a work of art that must be seen to be appreciated. The LFA has a multitude of air inlets, not the least of which are twin gaping holes on each side above and below the rear of each door. Triangular headlights create a sinister look up front, while the rear is defined by a trio of mid-mounted exhaust pipes, a speed-sensitive rear wing and blacked-out honeycomb air scoops below the taillights. The LFA’s chassis and bodywork use extensive carbon fiber, which is lightweight yet strong.

In August 2011, Evo UK conducted a direct head to head comparison of Lexus LFA and Ferrari 599 GTO, which mainly consisted of driving in the mountains of Scottish highlands. While the Ferrari 599 GTO makes 100 more horsepower than the LFA, the LFA is 125 kg (275 pounds) lighter than the Ferrari 599 GTO and also has much more compact dimensions. Though the Ferrari 599 GTO delivered more power, they praised the Lexus LFA dynamics immensely. They also called it “the greatest high-performance car Japan has ever built”. Evo said, “Both cars feel sensational, but it’s the Lexus that displays greater body motion control, traction and progressive on-limit breakaway, never once grazing the road with its belly despite countless pre-emptive grimaces from Green and myself. The Ferrari is the wilder ride, uttering the odd skrrrsh from a few bits of sacrificial plastic and breakaway traction, but it is still grin inducing fun”. In the end they awarded the win to Lexus LFA.

Lexus has long made its stake on comfortable, quiet cars that emphasize a plush ride over warp-speed acceleration. The 2012 Lexus LFA is different. Over a decade in the making, the LFA is the halo of Lexus’ F performance line, a lightweight supercar meant to take on the world’s best, Ferraris and Lamborghinis among them. This 2-passenger, rear-wheel-drive coupe is powered by a small but mighty V10 engine that revs to 9,000 rpm and propels the car to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds. Even if you can afford the $375,000 cost that comes with an LFA, your chances of getting one are slim to none. With only 500 of these cars being produced for the entire world and just a 1-year production run, the Lexus LFA is extremely rare.
