They should put the nascar engine in the next LFA
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.

The V8 engine is likely cheaper and easier to fix for what they're doing, kind of like how many in the drifting world run GM's LS motors. Yeah it destroys the "JDM" ness but it gets results (cheap to make horsepower and fix).

Are you asking if this is a real LFA? It sure is, unfortunately. The engine was swapped out along with other modifications.
Enter restoration year 20xx. Guess I have to write that one off. Damn, what a waste.
