Lexus LF-A "record" lap of the NS

There had been some discussion recently about Lexus' claimed time of the Ring, and they finally posted a video to confirm....unlike Porsche who have never posted anything at all about their claimed 7:18 GT2 RS lap

Definitely sounds good. Also impressive, it was on Bridgestone Potenza RE070 oem tires...which are some way behind the michelin cups used by Porsche (and in those latest corvette laps)

Then again the LF-A was first spotted on the Ring in 2007 so about frikking time.

PS: the quotations around "record" are simply because there is no official body of any kind that decides which records are valid or what exactly constitutes a production car.

And in the "weird" category, Toyota also kind of set a new electric record on the ring. Something seems very wrong watching this video, there's just no fun going fast without the sound..

I dunno man, on those straights that thing is screaming. The combo of the wind noise and whine of the electric makes it enjoyable for me at least.

No one is complaining that a Toyota beat a cup-o-noodles, a BMW, and a Corvette around the Ring you cockjuggling thunder

RTFT. He's complaining that they should have done it on better tires.

Jesus fuck, you're almost worse than Rang3

Toyota setting records on the NS.

Maybe all those prophecies about the 2012 being the end of the world are true.
