Die Deutsche Wochenschau (The German Weekly Review) was the title of the unified newsreel series released in the cinemas of Nazi Germany from until the end of World War II.
Engineers attempted to make the engine sound like that of a Formula One car with high revs, while at the same time maintaining reliability and vibration control. Along with other manufacturers such as Ferrari , Toyota had produced their own F1 engines and chassis designs. The powerplant gives the LFA a weight-to-power ratio of 5. The engine exceeds Euro V emissions.
The gearbox built by Aisin is a six-speed single clutch automated sequential gearbox electrohydraulic transmission operated with paddle-shifters.
The Lexus LFA's frame is made from an in-house designed and manufactured carbon fiber-reinforced polymer CFRP center monocoque with aluminum front and rear subframes. The subframes, which can be removed and replaced minimizing potential repair costs, are joined to the monocoque using a newly developed aluminum flanged collar designed to create a stronger joint. An electric power steering rack with a The front suspension utilizes a double-wishbone arrangement and there is a multi-link arrangement at the rear with coil-over dampers at all wheels.
The dampers are a monotube design, each with a remote fluid reservoir that includes an expanding and contracting bellows: To maintain a near ideal weight distribution, a rear transaxle is used, in addition to the mounting of the fuel tank ahead of the rear axle and the radiators at the rear. The windshield washer fluid reservoir is mounted in the center next to the fuel tank to improve further the center of weight.
The engine is connected to the transaxle via a rigid carbon-fiber torque tube which the exhaust system runs directly below. The LFA body features sharp edges and cutoffs for improved aerodynamic performance, made possible by the carbon fiber body. There are air scoops located over the rear fenders which feed the aft-mounted radiators and help cool the brakes.
Additional "special colors" are available to order. The LFA interior incorporates carbon fiber, leather, alcantara , and metallic surfaces. There are two bucket seats , and Lexus' Remote Touch controller interface. The interior design uses bespoke materials and colors. In operation the TFT display shows small digits in automatic mode; larger and bolder numbers in normal mode; inverted colors, moved redline, and stark numbers in sport mode, along with a programmable redline warning color change.
The steering wheel features a right-mounted start button and alloy paddle-shifters. It also features a re-calibrated transmission with gear shifts made faster by 0. The LFA with the Nürburgring Package is a competition-focused variant, and was available in four exterior colors, namely glossy black, matte black, race yellow, and whitest white.
Lexus confirmed that this lap video was recorded as a "warm up" video for the "ADAC hours" for exhibition purposes. Official specifications and performance figures for the Lexus LFA are as follows: Both cars won 2 races each making it a draw. Lexus LFA circled the skidpad in 1. AutoZeitung raved about LFA's handling, chassis control and race car-like reflexes and response.
It is important to note, the 2 production cars with quicker lap times than LFA wore standard Michelin Pilot Cup racing compound slick tires. The 2nd fastest recorded lap is also in a Lexus LFA of 1: Tanner Foust ran a quickest lap around Infineon Raceway in 1: Chief Engineer Haruhiko Tanahashi mentioned during the world's press at the Nürburgring in Germany that the LFA has lapped the Nürburgring Nordschleife in "better than 7 minutes 20 seconds", although no further specifics were given to the record lap.
The LFA clocked the Nurburgring in 7: Although the LFA lap time is slower than the chief engineer's "better than 7: All tests were conducted by the same driver, Horst von Saurma. Auto Bild Germany  in the September edition of in part 1 of the comparison conducted a head-to-head Nurburgring Supercomparo longer Lexus LFA turned in the fastest Nurburgring lap time 7: National Geographic Megafactories reports on test of the Lexus LFA Nürburgring package driven by Iida Akira that achieved record time for production vehicle of 7 minutes 14 seconds.
LFA comprehensively was declared the winner by the presenter where LFA lapped the short 1-mile track 1 full second faster than the R8 V10 with a lap time of The R8 V10 conventional brakes brought the car to a stop quicker than the LFA's ceramic carbon brakes.
However, in the behind the scenes footage, it was shown the LFA's carbon brakes meant for hardcore track usage were not warmed up properly, which is essential for carbon brakes to perform at their best.
In the successive run, R8 V10 brakes suffered massive brake fade increasing the distance 17 feet while LFA carbon brakes were consistently getting better braking shorter in every successive run. In the top speed, rolling start run on the 3. It communicates well, has a superb overall balance and the transparency of the options is an eye-opener. The choice between the racing setup and an all-day trip through a dense city is easily changed. Many reviewers have placed Lexus LFA near the top of the cars they have ever driven.
No other car inspires more confidence than the LFA". Dutch European journalist Thomas Bangma had said "this car is an absolute gem It is absolutely the best car I have ever driven".
The LFA appeared on Top Gear in January , when Richard Hammond drove the car and had rave reviews of it, with the car setting a record for the quickest wet test lap ever recorded on the Top Gear test track, faster than the Lamborghini Gallardo.
Later in Series 19, Ep. The LFA appeared on Fifth Gear with presenter Tiff Needell driving the car around the race track performing hotlaps, powerslides and power oversteers.
Needell described in detail the high-tech engineering used in the car and highly praised the 4. Tiff declared "people who purchased the LFA would be very happy when they get their cars". At the conclusion of the review, he stated "for a weekend race track car, LFA is worth every penny". Jay Leno in featured the LFA on his internet car enthusiast program Jay Leno's Garage where he looked at in-depth features of the Lexus LFA including the carbon fiber construction, interior features and the engine.
Leno heaped praises on the Lexus LFA engineering, attention to details and quality of work all around. Leno took the car for a test drive in the California mountains and had raving impressions of the LFA driving dynamics, handling, chassis rigidity and engine sound. Leno stated that the LFA was "one of the greatest supercars ever built and certainly the best supercar ever to have come out Japan".
Leno was very impressed with the LFA's city driving abilities and thought it was a very "docile car around town". Leno summarized the LFA as "certainly, there might be cars out there that could individually do things better than the LFA. Maybe a bit quicker or handling a bit better. But, no other car I know of does everything so extremely well".
However, around Contidrom with the longer meter configuration, the Lexus LFA lapped the track in 1: In order to make it a fair test to measure acceleration, handling, braking, according to Paul Williamson the race took place on a feet runway. Both accelerated to the end of the runway where the LFA will have to brake and turn around with the plane turning around as well. Then it was a race all the way back to the starting line with the LFA needing to brake before the plane in order for the Lexus LFA to win the race.
The proceeds of the win were to benefit charities. Once the race was complete, the Lexus LFA was able to win through completing the race including a full dead stop at the end before the plane cleared the finish line 2 seconds ahead of the Eclipse jet.
Both cars were tested using their full launch control systems. The reviewers praised the Lexus engine, technology, luxury, chassis and suspension calling it a 'rocketship'. Their comments on LFA were "The Lexus feels more athletic than the Ferrari, and its performance is more accessible, more immediately.
The engine is remarkable. The conclusion of Car and Driver was "if Lexus puts this much passion in every one of its cars, it will simply be unbeatable. Once the editors had the cars on mountain roads, clearly Lexus LFA seemed to make a very positive impression on the editors as they commented "The way the Aventador quickly reverses in my rearview mirror, my guess was not far off".
In the end in terms of sheer driving enjoyment, the editors were clear that Lexus LFA was the more enjoyable car of the two.
They also called it "the greatest high-performance car Japan has ever built". Evo said, "Both cars feel sensational, but it's the Lexus that displays greater body motion control, traction and progressive on-limit breakaway, never once grazing the road with its belly despite countless pre-emptive grimaces from Green and myself.
The Ferrari is the wilder ride, uttering the odd skrrrsh from a few bits of sacrificial plastic and breakaway traction, but it is still grin inducing fun". In the end they awarded the win to Lexus LFA.
Lexus had not given the permission to Insideline to use the launch control system, but due to the track surface for the head-to-head drag race was prepared with compound, it provided adequate off the line traction for the LFA.
The skidpad number were 1. Through improvisation, Motor Trend developed a way to neutral-drop launch the LFA; however, this flawed method did not control traction through alteration of ignition timing and stability control like a launch control system does, which resulted in a 3.
As both flash past the quarter-mile marker, the LFA never looks back". The magazine also found the LFA to be superior in dynamic handling. A great launch means only a chirp of the tires and blistering acceleration, but vary the rpm just bit and the LFA torches its rubber before rocketing down the strip.
A slight delay between paddle actuation and SMG response further complicates a fast start. V10 engine has power everywhere and delivery to make the most of that Does it also make fridges?
Jeremy highly praised the LFA's appearance and how special it felt both inside and out by saying "It looks very very special and inside it even gets better. Unlike Ferrari that fits buttons everywhere it can find some space, Lexus has thought through everything beautifully in this car. Apart from the switch that engages the reverse, which is behind the mileometer - there's a Spock-like logic to everything. And when you push or pull or engage anything, there is a sense that it will continue to work for thousands of years.
It is the nicest car interior I've ever encountered and I would never ever tire of the tool that moves all of the dials around". Clarkson highly praised the LFA engine by saying "Then you fire the engine up. Snick it into first, move off and The noise beggars belief. This is not a car that shouts, growls or barks.
Up there, on the moors, it sounded otherworldly. Like a werewolf that puts its foot in a gin tap. And while it is not as fast as you were expecting, you quickly realize on damp moorland road that BHP is perfect. Anything more and you're going to be picking heather out of the grille for a month". Clarkson had high praises for LFA's handling and confidence inspiring capabilities as he writes "The LFA inspires tremendous confidence.
Then up ahead, Gouge marks in the tarmac show clearly over the years, many a sump have clattered into the road and you brace for impact that never comes. The LFA may be lower than a worm's navel, but so successful is the suspension, it never bottoms out".
It is an intelligent car built by intelligent people. In some ways it is raw and visceral: In others it is a lesson in common sense. Engine at the front, two seats in the middle and a boot you can use. Despite all of this, there is a sense that you are in a real, full-on race car. It is a car that reminds you every time you drive it why we have corners.
It is nine-tenths as good. But costs almost five times less". In various events in the episode, all three participated in burn out contests as well as a drag racing event at the Las Vegas speedway where Clarkson in the Lexus LFA beat the Viper and Vanquish in head to head drag races.
The episode concluded with a race across America to the Mexican border with the loser being given the task to review the first ever Mexican sports car in the following episode. Hammond in this race with the Viper had lost so he was given the task to do the review. That is how much I love this car".
The documentary is respectful to his memory and his work. Awesome DVD - didn't know he died so young! If you like jazz you will find this dvd lot's of fun entertaining with good info Fantastic footage of Fats.
All the classic old tunes. Can't help but put a smile on your dial or a bounce in your step. Bought it for my dad, but the whole family bopped along to it. I have not played it yet, it is a Christmas present. I'm sure it will be fine. One person found this helpful. Mit Spannung habe ich die DVD erwartet und wurde nicht enttäuscht! In knapper Form wird die Geschichte dieses grossen Entertainers lebendig erzählt und mit Filmausschnitten ergänzt. Die Leute haben sich Mühe gegeben aus dem historischen Material etwas Gutes zu machen.
Entstanden ist ein richtiges Feuerwerk an wunderbarer Unterhaltung, natürlich mit dem etwas in Vergessenheit geratenen Fats am Klavier, richtig in der Stride-Tradition, und seinen guten Begleitmusikern. Heute würde man dies als All-Star-Gruppe bezeichnen! Eigentlich warte ich auf eine Fortsetzung dieses Films See all 10 reviews.
