[VIDEO] Japan's Better Motoring Pits LFA vs. GT-R, ZR1, 911 GT2 RS and F430 GT3

Here is a comparison video from Japan’s Best Motoring TV show that puts the Lexus LFA against the Nissan GT-R, Corvette ZR1, Porsche 911 GT2 RS and the Ferrari F430 GT3 for a 3-lap attack at Fuji Speedway.

The comparison is epic proof of why we don’t put too much stock into comparisons as this was all about the drivers and their lack of familiarity with any car that wasn’t Japanese. The Corvette driver seemed particularly tentative in the corners and really failed to utilize one of the ZR1’s core strengths: brakes. Despite that minor observation, it’s always fun to see these epic sports cars battling on a track. You have to watch the video to find out how it ends.

  1. Did they pay that ZR1 driver to be timid? I’ve never even tracked a car and I’m pretty sure I could shave a second or two off.

  2. I have previously owned a 2010 GTR which I traded two months ago for the 2012. I also own a replica 66 AC Shelby Cobra with a 460 stroker engine 580 hp coil overs wilwood brakes 6 piston front 4 piston rear. It is extreme American muscle. I can burn a corvette with it at will even the mighty ZR1. Where American cars fall short is delivering power to the pavement and of course corning. My GTR will absolutely destroy the cobra and any other two wheel drive car with suspension issues like corvettes mustangs and camaro’s. Launch control in the 2012 is just that, it launches the car out front and when the curves come up it is game over. Until GM or Ford can develope an all wheel drive sports car that can really perform in the curves and on the track, foreign competition will have the edge.
