Video: Drift-Built Lexus LFA Does Some Parking Lot Testing

Lexus LFA Drifting

Video of Yoichi Imamura’s drift-built Lexus LFA has surfaced, and…well…here it is:

The Lexus LFA is expected to participate in this year’s D1 Grand Prix in Japan.

Notice any difference in the sound of the LFA engine? That’s no surprise, because the glorious V10 has been….replaced by a…TRD Nascar V8.

That’s it. Words have failed me.

As dumbfounded as I am, I am eager to find out where the V10 finds a new home!

This one surely isn't one of the orginals, right?

Are you asking if this is a real LFA? It sure is, unfortunately. The engine was swapped out along with other modifications.

Maybe someone should make LFA replicas so that the real ones don't get destroyed.

Why would they deviate from the LFA's F1 racing engine heritage to something like NASCAR. LFA's V10 is head and shoulders above a NASCAR engine, which is mostly antiquated technology. Not to mention, it does not sound half as good as the LFA's V10.
