10/9/2012—Just for the record, racing a super car against a jet is an excellent idea. Of course, you have to design a special “track” with a lot of space (an airport fits the bill), as well as find a jet, a pilot, and a fast driver.
Lexus did it though: This week, the LFA, with pro driver Scott Pruett at the wheel, went head to head against an Eclipse jet at Colorado’s Longmont Airport—and won.
The videos will be out soon, but for now, enjoy our shots from the course:
