Edmunds has managed to scare up a video of the Lexus LF-A prototype during last week’s run around Nürburgring:
Seeing the supercar in motion is much more impressive than the spy photos, the speed is positively overpowering.
In their analysis of the footage, Edmunds makes some rather astute observations:
- Judging from the roar, the LF-A will be running a V-10 engine.
- The intake ducts integrated into the C-pillar and rocker panels could cool a rear-mounted battery pack, which would allow for a hybrid powertrain.
- The supercar is using an automated sequential manual gearbox, which presently sounds a little rough around the edges.
No word yet whether this car will be unveiled at Frankfurt Auto Show in September or the Tokyo Auto Show in October.
