CAR Magazine Sneak Peek: Lexus LFA vs. Lamborghini Aventador

Let’s take a break from the non-stop Lexus GS coverage and look at a sneak peek at what CAR Magazine has cooked up for their latest issue — the Lexus LFA vs. the Lamborghini Aventador:

There’s also this (far too) brief video:

So far the review’s not online, but there is a brief writeup on the CAR website:

Okay, the LFA has /only/ 552bhp, but it’s so unlike any Lexus that’s ever gone before: there’s no GS or LS slop or slack anywhere; the steering and brakes are brilliant; and it’s powered by the best engine this side of Paul Rosche’s masterpiece in the back of a McLaren F1.

That an LFA with the special Nürburgring Package has lapped the Nordschleife in a record-breaking 7:14, and that the Aventador feels (and is) much faster on the road tells you just how ridiculously quick Lambo’s latest and greatest is. It’s got 139bhp more than the Lexus. 139bhp! That’s an extra Suzuki Swift Sport. It’s a monster, but with four-wheel drive traction you can nail that throttle and access all 691bhp almost anywhere.

Even knowing that the extra horsepower firepower of the Aventador is going to be the deciding factor between the two cars, I’m still looking forward to this comparison.
