Video: Lexus LFA launch control makes start lines disappear quickly

Lexus LFA displays serious control on launch – Click above to watch video after the jump

Today, it's almost impossible to buy a new supercar without launch control; the 2011 Lexus LFA is no exception. It might not be the fastest, with a zero-to-60 time of "only" 3.7 seconds, yet the LFA remains an impressive rubber-footed beast.

The LFA's V10 wails towards its 9,500 rpm fuel cutoff like an oni haunting whoever slides behind the wheel. The video posted after the jump focuses on the tachometer as a Lexus LFA bolts from a starting line with the launch control lending its assistance. The driver pushes the car all the way up to 260 km/h (around 163 mph) before letting up on the throttle. Click past the jump to launch into the clip.
