Lexus has brought along a LFA Nürburgring Edition to its SEMA booth this year, apparently for no better reasons than to (a) show us the car in color other than the orange we saw for its Geneva debut and (b) let show-goers take turns running the car on a dynamometer. We'll admit, that last part is pretty good... we're waiting for the crowds to die down to take our turn, and to verify the alleged 562 horsepower output.

While we wait, why not peruse the above gallery of live LFA images? Supercar goodness therein.

      The purpose of this car is not to look good and to be affordable. It is an engineering marvel and a turning point for Toyota to start making driver's cars. At the time, BMW is making bloated luxury Camry's. Where is BMW's supercar?

        BMW started making drivers cars on the back of the humble 1600. Nissan slapped a 510 shell over it's top to make one. O' Group A Celica, how your father has drifted.

      The LFA in my opinion resembles a hollowed out skull in the front. I have never been able to appreciate the LFA's design. It seems like maybe they wanted to capture the look of Japanese tuner car meets super car like the infamous GTR. I just think the execution in the design was fairly odd, if not unattractive altogether. I know the LFA isn't a car for me, since im not a multimillionaire, I wouldnt knock it out of jealousy by any means, its just a hideous machine. Super cars should embrace both function and stellar aesthetics. Aventador looks amazingly cool, probably the best super car design since the super awesome Countach and wildly designed Testarossa. Its no wonder the LFA sort of takes a back seat in the super car world.

        Lexus LFA looks amazing. I have seen it on the road and it commands a presence that has to be seen to be believed. Aventador looks too big, fat and ugly. Quite honestly, most non car-buff people cannot tell the difference between a Murcielago and Aventador because it uses the same design language. LFA is a completely unique design. Love it or hate, that is what originality is all about.

      TRDyota can't even make a 1/2 million dollar sports car look good. New Vipers and Vettes will kill this TRD on the track and off.

      Jeremy Clarkson said, LFA has the best interior he has ever seen in a car and that LFA never lets him forget why Britain has turns European touring car champion Sandor Ees said LFA is one of the top 5 greatest cars he has ever driven Nurburgring track says LFA can lap the track in 7:14 without the need for track/dry-only slick tires and without the need of gutting all of the luxury and interior amenities Chris Harris of Evo said LFA is the best car he has ever driven around Nurburgring and also the best sounding car and that nothing has felt as special as the LFA since the Mclaren F1. Jay Leno called LFA the greatest achievement in Japanese automotive history and in order to fully appreciate how good LFA is, one has to actually own and understand other exotic cars in order to feel and experience the greatness of LFA Carbon fiber industry says, Lexus is the first automotive company ever to have developed a brand new way to weave carbon fiber using looms and building it in-house The list can go on forever. Case in point, people who hate on the LFA are so mired in their hatred that they only end up showing their severe lack of understanding of what exotic supercar ownership is all about. Either they are so blinded by their hatred or they simply have no clue what the hell they are talking about.

        sure it's great car, but it is also classic case of function over design. (seriously fast car, but ugly as hell.) to be honest, race version looks actually better than stock LFA. http://cms.autoclubhub.com/media/igallery/l/e/lexus-lfa-racing-03_1.jpg http://cms.autoclubhub.com/media/igallery/l/e/lexus-lfa-racing-04.jpg

          Ugly? Park this car on the street and see the camera phone come out. To say this car is ugly is amazing because I have seen it in person and its beautiful. The size the design the wheels, it looks flowing and fast parked. Amazing design AND Function

      build it at an affordable price or scrap the entire thing. either you are all in with a competitive sports car or you are not. the teasing has gotten boring.

      I really wished this car to become more advanced. It stopped evolving since that accident. The test driver who knew much about this car has already died. The nurburgring package is still present progressive for him.
