Quarter Mile Throwdown: Nissan GT-R Versus Lexus LFA

In this corner, weighing in at 3,800 pounds and coming out of the gate with AWD and 485 horsepower, is the 2010 Nissan GT-R. Its opponent, the new Lexus LFA, weighs in at 3,400 pounds, puts out 552 horsepower and sends it to the rear wheels only. Which one is faster in the quarter mile? Watch the video to find out.

I’m with Autoblog on this one: a quarter mile drag race between these two cars is somewhat irrelevant. Instead, let’s put them through some testing on a road course or two to see which one really comes out on top. It would still be an apples-to-cinder-blocks comparison, though, since you can buy four GT-Rs for the price of a single LFA. The LFA is targeted to an entirely different customer than the GT-R, and the shame of it is that most LFAs will be used to one-up a rich neighbor, not to turn hot laps on a racetrack.

    They need to compare the Nissan GT-R with a Switzer P800 to the Lexus LFA that would be a real match.

    Agreed, but only if they run ‘em on a road course. I’ll volunteer my time to flog the snot out of the trio at Barber Motorsport Park.

    Anonymous1, I get it: Nissan screwed you somehow and you’ve made it your life’s mission to discredit them. Since this is about the third post of mine you’ve spam bombed, I’ll give you one chance to put up or shut up: instead of typing Nissan sucks a thousand times, why don’t you tell me why? Otherwise, go troll somewhere else.
