The Lexus LFA is My Favourite Japanese Sports Car!

The Lexus LFA and Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R; two cars that are adored by Japanese sports car fans despite being very different from one another. Join me at the private collection of @briangoldphd to check out these two masterpieces and get a feel for them on the roads!

The Lexus LFA is a personal favourite of mine with one of the very best sounding engines of all time. Taking a long time to get through to production, the car is over-engineered in just about every respect from the tuning of the audio by Yamaha and the air bag seatbelts, to the materials from which it's built. Only 500 were built and this car is number 400 of the run with a 560hp 4.8l V10.

Also in Brian's collection is the Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R V Spec, a car that appeals to many die hard car fans the world over. In fact it's often one that I'm told I skipped over but now it's time to learn more about it, and this car in particular as one of only 14 legal imported cars to the USA and with a whole host of modifications taking it up to 650bhp at the wheels. Unusually in the USA, it's also a RHD car but for me very interesting to learn what Nissan were doing back in 1999 that was ahead of its time.

While they are two very different cars, they also complement each other well in the collection alongside the Porsche 911 GT2 RS and Vorsteiner 911 Turbo S RT. The Lexus LFA is however very firmly rooted in my dream car wish list for one day in the future!
