Bugatti Veyron vs Lamborghini Aventador vs Lexus LFA vs McLaren MP4-12C

This is just a ridiculous race that just has to be seen, I for one am not a fan of Bugatti Veyron. As for the other machine, I’m much more of a fan of the other cars. There were a few surprises for me during this drag race, but it isn’t always about the straight line, some of these machines perform very differently on the track.

LFA & IS-F On Track

“The Gizmos and Gadgets are like being inside a Transformer”

I have seen the LFA in Kuwait a few times on the road, the white one, and it is a beautiful creature to see. But hearing the exhaust for the first time in this video is amazing and I love that they have matched it up with the IS-F. The IS-F is one the most fun four door sedans out there to drive and seriously a lot of bundled up power in the machine. I really love the color on both the LFA and IS-F and they both do wonders around the track. If I had a choice between a Lamborghini and the LFA I would honestly go with the LFA because its a once in a lifetime vehicle, its on a level of its own.

New Owner Of An LFA

Javiar Quiros does what every new owner of an LFA does, now he is an excited man and I really can’t blame him. He got # 14 and I think doughnuts are the best way to celebrate. Don’t know how many people in Costa Rica will be driving this car, but I don’t know when I will be seeing one but its a beautiful machine.

Lexus LFA vs Nissan GT-R

An epic battle between two amazing Japanese machines, I think this is the question many have been asking, for all the technology and development of the Lexus LFA is it faster then the Nissan GT-R. Luckily MotorTrend Managed to get their hands on one LFA to try against their Nissan GT-R. The LFA sounds amazing and they are drifting it around corners, and sliding into the next, what a machine.

Lexus ♥ iPod

LexusApple

The one annoying thing about the 2008/09 Lexus LX 570 & Toyota Landcruiser is that they can’t integrate with the iPod. You have to buy an aftermarket adapter to integrate into the system, and in my case I found a perfect solution which worked for me but you would expect a car as expensive as that to be able to integrate without issues. It seems Toyota heard people’s complaints, with the 2010 Landcruiser / Lexus LX 570 all you have to do is plug into the iPod into the USB slot next to the gear handle and it integrates right into your audio system with all files, playlists, and other details showing up on the screen. I have a 2009 Landcruiser so I got my solution which works for me, and my friend just purchased a 2010 LX 570 and that suv connects right away without any issues. Toyota always does this, they release a few options year after year, and if you bought the model year before then tough luck you can’t upgrade that option in your car even though its just a software thing, its good they keep upgrading but it’s annoying when it was something as simple as iPod integration, well good for all those who will be buying a new LX 570 or Landcruiser.

Lexus LFA – Lease Now Buy Later

LexusLFA

Now this is an interesting turn of events from Lexus, there has been a lot of buzz about the LFA. At $150’000 this is one of the most expensive vehicles from Lexus yet, but a limited production of 500 will be made, sold, and delivered by January 2011. What usually happens with high end limited cars such as these is that a few by them to drive, and many buy them to drive up the prices and make a profit over the mark up. What Lexus is doing so that dealerships don’t have the usually excuse for equipment and training to mark up prices, they are providing for the specialized training for special mechanics, and provide the equipment free of charge to those specific dealerships who are authorized to sell the LFA. Now for the interesting part, Lexus will not be selling the LFA outright, they will lease them for 2 years and give you a buy out option later. This is meant to discourage those companies or individuals who buy limited quantity machines such as the LFA and try to sell them at ridiculous profit, making it difficult to transfer the machine to another owner, if this works other supercar manufacturers will follow suit.

UK police Lexus IS-F cruisers

Things you don’t expect do happen, pigs flying, Lexus IS-F Police cruiser or Arnoob as it is called in Kuwait. This isn’t the fastest car out there but its one quick four door with nimble handling. With 416 bhp V8 available at the officers command I can assume very few criminals will be getting away, some how the English always know how to make their Police cars look cooler.

Lexus IS-F vs. Nissan GT-R

“The IS-F is as sporty as Lexus can make it without sacrificing one iota of luxury; the GT-R is as luxurious as Nissan can engineer it without sacrificing even a bit of performance. The IS-F is a slightly softer competitor to BMW’s M3; the GT-R is a stiffer, more committed alternative to Porsche’s 911 Turbo.”

 

Never really would think of making a comparison between this two cars, but the quote says it all. I’m looking forward to Toyotas release of the new Supra.

Lexus LF-A Roadster

I don’t even know what the specs of this machine are, all I know is that I want to be behind the wheel. It supposed to be the most incredible machine developed by a Japanese Automaker yet, and they have been making some interestingly powerful cars. I do hope Lexus does take this machine in production, and if the specs are high enough they can put whatever price tag they want on it and it will sell.
