Check out the clip below of the ever-glorious Lexus LFA supercar taking on the robust Porsche 918 hybrid. While the Porsche 918 certainly packs a substantial lead in the power department, few will argue that the Lexus LFA takes home the gold in the acoustics arena.
Lexus LFA Vs. Porsche: Automotive enthusiast and specialist Shmee150 seems to hit every enviable event—thanks for sharing!
The video was shot during a gathering of gearheads, because what better way to spend spare time than to square off against pals on a track? The straight-line comparison between the Porsche 918 spyder and the Lexus LFA ended with predictable results. That said, both machines are epic in their own areas and both are a treat to behold in any situation. Because the 918 is bursting with double the horsepower and that slick engineering, the LFA did not stand a chance in a race. The Lexus LFA is the first supercar bred by the label, and while she is most assuredly fast, her true strength has always been in the drivability and sound departments. Jeremy Clarkson, former Top Gear personality, called the Lexus LFA the “Best car I’ve ever driven.” That is probably the best compliment a vehicle can receive, ask any automotive enthusiast what the stamp of approval from Clarkson means, let alone the ‘best car’ nod.
