Lexus LFA Launch Control Demonstration

Haven’t featured the Lexus LFA yet this year, so let’s watch Scott Pruett rocking the launch control at the Infineon Raceway:

I was actually there when this was filmed, and loved watching the LFA launch off the line — that exhaust note is still perfection, no matter how many times I hear it.

    0 - 61 mph in 3.5 seconds. That means, the 0 - 60 mph happens in the video in 3.3 - 3.4 seconds without any 1-foot roll out. Once you throw in the standard American car testing by magazines and drag strips 1-foot roll out, it dips 0.1 - 0.2 seconds even lower making it a low-3 second 0 - 60 mph sprint.
  2. Top Speed just published on their site the 10 fastest production cars of 2011 & guess what found it's way on the list with some other impressive company?
  3. Amazing video! Absolutely love it. The best sounding exotic supercar in production today. The F1 racing car sound is just amazing. Also seeing how it accelerates like a bat out of hell getting to 60 mph in 3.2 - 3.3 seconds in the video is also icing on the cake especially considering it is not a straight line drag racing exotic supercar, but an all-out track racing exotic supercar with a lap time of 7:14. This supercar does so many things and does all of them so well.
