We can always rely on the good people at Motor Trend to stir up some genuine jealousy thanks to their excellently crafted videos. The team recently got their hands on the Lexus LFA and took the V10 monster out to an abandoned Marine base for a little frolicking in the wide-open spaces. They were kind enough to bring the video crew along for the ride, and the finished result is a lengthy clip that features plenty of sideways action without any prattling voice overs. Unfortunately, we don't get to hear that sinister engine wail or the tires beg for mercy. The whole shindig instead gets set to an impressively dramatic soundtrack.

Still, we'll never complain at the chance to watch the LFA turn its high-dollar wheels in anger. Odds are we'll get another look at the car and find out what the MT gurus thought soon enough. Hit the jump to check out the video clip for yourself in all of its high-definition glory.

      So they put a soundtrack over the sound of the engine. A car magazine full of auto enthusiastic chose to mute one of the greatest sounding engines out there and replace it with a generic orchastra. Great job!

        Oh look, you're lying about what kind of cars you can buy. THAT'S something you don't see everyday on the internet./sarcasm I just love it when people like you seem to think the rest of the Internet is stupid enough to believe your outlandish lies. Now I have the feeling I have overguessed your age. With those childish insults along with the lying about you being wealthy, I am now aware that you are well below 20 years old. Probably more like 16 or 17.

      Beautiful car, drifting for drifting's sake is pretty lame to me. Being able to control a drift on the street or at the track when driving at the edge is definitely important and is impressive when it occurs. Otherwise, it is largely an exercise in burning up expensive tires. I too would have preferred to hear the engine, not the sound track to some '...alypse' movie.

      Really MT? You try to make a Top Gear-esque video with a high revving V10 and you don't even let us HEAR it?!

        meh... mp4-12c is faster for sure. But who cares? on the Top Gear track the Mclaren is the 2nd one! with a time of 1:16 LFA Wet lap is 1:22, even with the 4 sec deduction it would be only 1:18. But again... who cares? If i could afford a half a million car i would get an LFA over ANYTHING else. I dont care how much money i would have left if i buy a GTR for ever day of the week or if a modified GTR could destroy a Bugatti SS on a drag race. LFA looks awesome, sounds badass and drives like a dream!
