Lexus LFA vs Porsche Carrera GT: Drag race for music lovers



    It may be an endangered engine today, even more so than the V12s, but for many the V10 is still the best sounding engine in the world. Two good examples of this, beyond the F1 era with this type of mechanics, are street cars like the Lexus LFA or the Porsche Carrera GT that are always in the top of the best-sounding cars in the history of mankind, and very often in the top positions.

    The same can be said in its fair measure of its “semi” versions, the five cylinder engine. Today another type of quite exotic mechanics that only Audi seems willing to keep alive with its 2.5 TFSI currently present in models such as the Audi S3 and RS 3 two models that, like the previous two and iconic supercars, have come together in this Hagerty video to check not only which of the two V10s is the one that sounds better and is the faster, but also what exactly makes them sound so special.

    But beyond its sound we are talking about two really fast sports cars. The Lexus LFA, produced between 2010 and 2012, was presented with a 4.8-liter V10 engine at 78ยบ with a dual VVT-i system. A mechanic that resulted in about 560 horsepower and 480 Nm of maximum torque delivered to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox. It does 0 to 100 in 3.7 seconds and its top speed was around 325 km/h.

    In contrast, the Porsche Carrera GT, from a failed project for Le Mans, was manufactured between 2004 and 2006 with a block 5.7-liter V10 with 603 horsepower and 590 Nm of maximum torque, and a redline that was located at 8,400 rpm -The LFA went further, up to 9,000-. With all this, the GT Carrera did the 0 to 100 in 3.9 seconds, slightly slower than the LFA therefore.

    Does that translate to the track? Well, surprisingly not, because the Porsche GT Carrera manages to take off in the first meters of the race, and although the LFA recovers ground in the last section, the German model manages to prevail over the Japanese in this Drag Race. Another thing is which of the two has better sound but that decision seems somewhat more subjective.
