In typical Top Gear fashion, they give the Lexus LFA a resounding review and then forcibly use some ridiculous yardstick by which to measure its worth. Minds are not budged when the LFA yields the fastest wet lap on the leader board. In fact, for those who are keeping score, subtract Top Gear‘s regulation four seconds from the lap time for dampness and the LFA actually beats every Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche in the show’s history.
The review serves its goal of entertaining the masses, even if the sole negatives seem to stem from the “but it’s a Lexus” school of thought. Perhaps the producers would reconsider its prestige if they stopped claiming that the company which made the LFA has never built a supercar before, hmmmm?
