Spy Shots:Lexus LF-A arrives at the ring

The Lexus LF-A seems like a car that will never make it to the dealership. Spy photographers from KGP have caught another new version of the LF-A near the famed Nurburgring in Germany, this one apparently decked out in full racing gear. The most obvious difference is the giant rear wing in place of the retractable one seen on prior prototypes. It also has what appears to be carbon fiber canards on the outer edges of the front clip, which seems like a hint this isn't a road car but a track only car. The speculations going around is that Lexus is making two types of LF-A, one for racing on the track(one with wing) and one for the regular streets. I hope this car comes out soon, I really love the way it looks, especially the one without a spoiler. I look forward to seeing it.[Source:Auto Blog,Image Source: Left Lane News]-Check out images below of both prototypes, More pictures after the jump.

Spy Shots:Lexus LF-A Roadster

Lexus is definitely entering the performance world. You have the Lexus IS-F, the Lexus LF-A and now the Lexus LF-A roadster. This seems to be a mixture of the SC Lexus model from various years and a bit of the Nissan 350z in it. The roadster is made up of carbon fiber and aluminum, supposedly maintaining a high amount of structural rigidity even without its roof. The Lexus is packing approximately 5.0-liters in its front-mounted V10, sending over 500 hp down to a transmission fitted between towards the back for optimal weight balance.[Source: Auto Blog]

Lexus GS-F to take on BMW M5?…We’re serious!

When you think of Mercedes performance you think of AMG, well now Lexus has its performance brand the F, now that the IS-F is out, Lexus has a new goal GS-F and its main competitor BMW M5. BMW is not worried and i don't think they should be, the IS-F already is getting bad reviews, with 0-60 of 4.6 and 416 hp while the M3 has 414 hp and 0-60 in 4.4. The GS-F will be getting a V10 with around 450 hp which is already no match for the might 500 hp v10 M5. Due to be released in 2011.[Source Auto Blog and Hollywood Extra]

Lexus IS-F from A to Z

Lexus has a new car out on the road and it is the IS-F, a sportier version of the already sporty IS class. Lexus claims the 416hp vehicle goes 0-60 in 4.6 while that is amazing, its not entirely amazing when compared to the 414 hp BMW M3 going 0-60 in low 4 seconds. Car has an amazing 8speed and also don’t forget the price tag of $56,000. While i’m not personally too crazy about lexus i think they did go up a level in creating this new IS-F but for the price and speed, one is better off going with the bmw M3 or audi S4 or RS4 for a real sports car. Below are specs of the car and also pictures and a video of the car accelerating which sounds very soft for a v-8 producing 416hp.[Source Lexus]
