If you think that keeping a supercar like the Lexus LFA under control while doing donuts is not such a hard task for the average driver, then adding a supermodel like Rianne Ten Haken in the middle will certainly create a challenge for the guy inside the V10 powered coupe.

The latest issue of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit will feature just that, but to make things safe for miss Ten Haken, the average driver in the Lexus LFA was replaced with Rhys Millen who performed a series of high-speed donuts in order to create "imagery for the sizzling four-page spread".

A New Kind of Eye Candy for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Fans
Supercar meets supermodel as Lexus pairs the LFA with Dutch supermodel
 
TORRANCE, Calif. (Feb. 15, 2011)—A gorgeous supermodel with wind blowing through her hair isn’t unusual to see in the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition.  But when that wind is created by a Lexus LFA supercar screaming by, it’s definitely something to check out.


 
Supermodel Rianne Ten Haken, who has graced the cover of magazines such as Vogue and GQ: Gentleman’s Quarterly, participated in a very different swimsuit photo shoot as she faced off with the 552 horsepower, 4.8 liter, V10 engine of the LFA. At a distance of just four feet, the LFA ran multiple high-speed donuts around the model to create the imagery for the sizzling four-page spread. The spread and additional executions were custom-designed for the highly-anticipated Swimsuit issue, which offers the perfect platform to showcase the LFA while reaching a broad audience. Behind-the-scenes footage of the dramatic shoot can be viewed on YouTube.com/lexusvehicles and on iPad and Galaxy Tablet applications, with banner ads running on SI.com.
