Super Car | Dashboard and weight
On the super car dash board , the main panel has a single LCD screen , displaying all the relevant information . The LFA will rev from idle to redline in just over half a second . The conventional analog tachometer instrument simply cannot register and react quickly to this . Over 65% of the LFA is made from carbon fiber reinforced polymer , designed and manufactured in house . According to Toyota , the carbon fiber construction is similar to aeronautical standards . The LFA is one of the most ferocious car to ever comes out of Japan ….. or is it ?
The Lexus LFA versus Nissan GT-R . It has never been an ALL Japan title fight quite like this . We just want to know who is faster over a quarter mile . The LFA wins barely . Watch the race again but this time more closely . At the start , the all rear LFA is at a disadvantage compared to the all wheel drive GT-R and its superior traction . By the time the car reached 60MPH , the GT-R is still in the lead with its quick start and aggressive gearing . The Nissan GT-R hit 60 MPH in just 3.5s , while the Lexus trailed behind by just 0.3s . Around the middle of the track the tables starts to turn . The GT-R gearing advantage begins to count for less than the higher revving and more powerful engine of the LFA . By the finishing line , the LFA has just manage to lead ahead of the GT-R by completing the quarter mile in 11.8s at 123MPH . The GT-R is just a tick behind with 11.9s at 120.1MPH
