Paul Walker gets Fast & Furious in a Lexus LFA [video]

Still good after 30,000 miles

Lexus is looking to cash in on The Fast and the Furious by releasing a new video that shows Paul Walker test driving an LFA.

Filmed to celebrate the fact that two LFAs have 30,000 miles (48,280 km) on the odometer, the clip showcases the cars being driven at Willow Springs International Raceway in California.

The clip is a little dry, but Lexus says the video shows the durability of the supercar as the models have only had oil, brake and tire changes. As Walker explains "They get driven hard and they get put to bed wet."

As refresher, the LFA features a 4.8-liter V10 engine that develops 560 HP (412 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed transmission which enables the supercar to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).

isn't he supposed to be the GTR actor. i mean in several movies his character insists on driving the GTR (no matter what generation). so, it's like "captain picard", or doctor house...no matter what other movies he plays he will be the FmF racer that loves GTRs :D

For a luxury, limited run production car I expect a lot more that 30000 miles. This limit should not be a benchmark for this kind of car (It's not an F1 engine to run several thousands km and then scrap it!). Aside that, P. Walker is an actor. Is he also a professional test driver to really fill in that position and prove the performance of Lexus`s most desirable car?

They are just saying that to the contrary of an italian sports car, they didn't need to do anything on the engine except a service. After so many miles Italians start to have already more costs. Not like the Japanese or German car industries
