This next video has hit the intertubes courtesy of French publication Magazine Motorsport, and it shows the Lexus LFA launch control system at work. The Japanese sports car reaches 260 Km/h from a standstill in something like 25 seconds, and last few seconds from the footage show us what that looks like when seen from the outside.
As a reminder , the Lexus LFA is powered by a 4.8-litre V10 which develops 552 horses and which has been tuned to produce F1 noises when the has pedal is pressed. 0 to 60 mph takes 3.7 seconds, but pay attention when you watch this video, as you might miss it in case you blink twice.
