It’s not just Honda and BMW who have been putting their F1 experience to use in their road cars. Meet the Lexus LF-A.

We’ve not really seen anything mind-boggling from Toyota/Lexus since the Toyota Supra. This LF-A will come with a 5 litre V10 putting out an excess of 500hp.

A 5 litre V10 would put it into the same league as the Porsche Carrera GT and the Lamborghini Gallardo.

The car is expected to be unveiled at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show. Cost? Upwards of USD$100,000. Very ambitious.

Side profile reminds me of the Toyota Supra legend.

What’s that fan doing there? Suck hot air from the brakes?

It’s not just Proton that’s mad with center exhausts. This one’s got three!

There is an exclusive spy video of the car doing it’s paces on Germany’s Nurburgring test track here.
