Engine of the year - Lexus LFA 4.8-litre V10


The LFA is one car we'll be trying to get our hands on when it comes here next year. It's unlikely that Lexus will have a press demonstrator though as all five LFAs slated for Singapore have been sold for over a million bucks each. Although we've not driven or will unlikely to drive it, it will be hard not to award the LFA with this award. The LFA's bespoke 4.8-litre V10 might not produce more power than the 458's or SLS AMG's V8 motors but its F1-style high revving nature V10 sounds just surreal. The motor is not all noise and no go though, the 40-valve V10 1LR-GUE unit is good enough for 552bhp and 480Nm, the latter produced at a stratospheric 6800rpm. Listen to the V10 rev up to its 9000rpm rev limit on Youtube and you'll understand why we just have to award this accolade to the LFA even though it'll be one car that we will unlikely be able to drive. But we will do almost anything if any of the five LFA owners in Singapore are willing to let us have a go in one... please?

You have a great team working tirelessly for me and I appreciate the extra effort that was put in to get more quotes when the previous dealer fell through. A good experience.
