Lexus LFA (2012): 23 facts and highlights

1. faster top speed

The fastest speed that the car can reach.

2. faster acceleration (0-100)

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.

3. larger engine size

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.

4. shorter length

5. higher maximum torque

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.

6. height

8. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.

9. Has rear-wheel drive

Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.

10. better fuel economy (highway)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.

11. better fuel economy (combined)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.

12. weight

13. lower coefficient of drag

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel economy.

14. Has a petrol (gasoline) engine

A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.

15. longer wheelbase

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).

16. more cylinders

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.

17. Has fully independent suspension

This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.

18. better fuel economy (city)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.

19. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.

20. USB ports

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.

21. lower ground clearance

The ground clearance is the distance between the lowest point of the car and the road surface. A shorter ground clearance lowers a vehicle’s center of gravity - increasing its handling ability and reducing the chance of a rollover. However, a higher ground clearance allows you to go over more uneven terrain.

22. more valves

An intake valve allows the air/fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. An engine with more valves tends to increase performance.

23. faster acceleration (0-200)

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-200 kilometres per hour.
