Lexus LS 460 Crashes, Audience Claps

At least the crowd was entertained. Really though, who enters a race in a LS?

Update: Looks like the LS driver wasn’t the only one who had a problem on this corner.

More Lexus LFA Spy Shots


More Lexus LFA photos are making their way online—World Car Fans has posted some additional images showing the supercar prototype at Nürburgring with its rear wing fully extended and the redesigned rear window air scoops visible:

The LFA concepts have always been impressive, but this polishing towards production has the supercar looking better than ever. I’m very impressed, and that’s even without knowing what’s under all that soft camo.

Be sure to check out World Car Fans for more photos.

New Lexus LFA Spy Shots


A reworked Lexus LFA has been spotted, sporting some vinyl camouflage and looking much closer to production than ever before:

Most of the changes over the last-seen mule are in the more aggressive front-end, but the whole vehicle looks more polished and sleek.

Motor Authority also has some spy shots, including this brief look at the interior:

The LFA is expected to be introduced at the Tokyo Motor Show in October.
