The Lexus LFA has been widely acclaimed since its launch two years ago, for its incredible hi-tech engineering, brutally powerful V10 engine and pioneering construction.
But this weekend could offer the best chance yet to see the car as it appears on Top Gear (Sunday, BBC Two, 8pm) as Jeremy Clarkson takes the wheel on one of the show’s famous adventures.
