Lexus’ latest creation has already generated some buzz. The LF-A challenges the likes of the Ferrari 458 Italia, Lamborghini Gallardo and Audi R8. This fireball boasts a V10 with 552 hp that can take it from 0-100 km/h in as little as 3.7 seconds. For now, production is limited to 250 units per year – only five of which will be sold in Canada.
