2012 Lexus LFA not as a supercar, but as a narcotic, because of its intent to affect the structure and function of the human body. With only 500 available worldwide, this gives a new meaning to the term, “designer drug.” With a race-bred, 4.8-liter v10 under the hood it’d be apt to describe the sensation of driving this vehicle as euphoria inducing. It is nearly identical in length to a Porsche 911 and Chevrolet Corvette, but lower and wider than both. With 552 horses, Lexus claims its LFA will rocket to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds towards a top speed of 202 mph. If your pockets are deep enough and the habit is too hard to kick, the LFA retails for $375,000 USD.
