It’s not everyday that a mainstream automaker decides to try its hand at building a world-class supercar. But when one has the motoring world has been given some of its most interesting machines like the Honda NSX, the Ford GT, the Dodge Viper, and more recently the Lexus LFA.
Any supercar takes years of development with fine-tuning and extensive testing. Toyota learned its lessons with the Lexus LFA and spent year’s and millions preparing the supercar for its debut. Now, to show the world just how tough making a supercar really is, the Japanese automaker has released a ‘making-of’ video.
Check out the video below and see how the LFA went from a radical idea to being a fully formed carbon fibre Ferrari-eating beast. The clip shows the model’s long-term development at the Nürburgring, the tragic loss of test driver Hiromu Naruse and setting its victorious Nordschleife lap time.
