The Lexus LFA takes on the Audi R8 V10 in a drag race!
Although newer cars are usually highlighted in drag races, there is a lot of interest in having older cars in those races. It may even be more interesting to see how older vehicles hold up compared to newer, more modern models.
Today, it's the famous and much loved Lexus LFA that will take on the Audi R8 in the V10 version. The Japanese first hides under its bonnet a 4.8-litre V10 with an exceptional sound and 560 bhp and 480 Nm of torque. All this power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed robotised gearbox.
On the other side is the Audi R8 Spyder. Under its bonnet is a 5.2-litre V10 with 620 hp and 580 Nm of torque. The German car sends these figures to all four wheels via a seven-speed double-clutch robotised gearbox. The Audi weighs 1,770 kg and the Lexus weighs 1,480 kg.
The R8 therefore has a mechanical advantage, while the LFA will be able to use its lightness to try and win the duel. So which of the two cars will emerge victorious from this confrontation?
