Here they come again, Toyota and Nissan are set to continue from where they stopped with the introduction of 2013 Lexus LFA and 2013 Nissan GT-R in the mix. The battle line between the supercars has been drawn, 2013 Lexus LFA vs 2013 Nissan GT-R contest will be hotter than ever before.
In 2007, Nissan introduced the Skyline GT-R to the United States. The car’s price embarrassed buyers and other supercars’ manufacturers. Its base price was three and four times as much as other supercars! Since then, things has gotten better and better every year. A more luxurious interior, better brakes and an astonishingly designed exterior all followed. A higher performing engine is also about to follow with the 2013 GT-R model.
Another good thing is about to happen now. With just around $100,000 you can get a car that is not only purposefully designed, but one that meets every driver’s needs effortlessly. Nissan GT-R 2013 reminds one of a car that was built for everyone. The design is breath taking, and it is equipped with modern convenience features. Some people may call the look “comical”, but what i saw is a dramatically styled car.
It is a fact; Lexus LFA has always been a wonderfully designed supercar. There may be no significant changes in the 2013 LFA, but we expect to see a slimmer profile, a smaller rear spoiler, new headlights and a larger air intake. So, the Lexus LFA 2013 will continue where the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Package stopped. It will wear a sporty style and the new carbon fibre-reinforced polymer (CFRP) that is being use on its body will make it lighter. We expect the car to be released sometime in 2013 as an expensive, limited edition.
Lexus LFA 2013 model will be powered by a naturally aspirated, high revving 4.8L V10 engine. The V10 engine used by the current model will be reengineered to improve its performance. We are expecting more than 562 HP from the new engine and its top speed should also be more than 210 mph recorded last time. What this means is that 2013 LFA would achieve 0-60 mph acceleration in less than 3.7 seconds.
2013 GT-R is coming with a twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V6 engine just like the previous model. The engine was reengineered to give higher performance. The air intake ducts was enlarged and the exhaust emissions efficiency was increased. By doing this, the output increased by 15 HP to 545 HP at 6,400 rpm, and the Torque also increased by 15 pound-feet to 463 lb-ft from 3,200-5,800 rpm.
Although Nissan GT-R 2013 cannot be called a lightweight at 3,800 pounds, the turn-in is smooth but at a very high speed corners. Its brakes are simply amazing, and its acceleration is something else. It completed 0-60 MPH in 2.72 seconds! Its steering is precise and quick, and wonderfully communicative. The 2013 Lexus LFA also comes with its good point, its engine has a higher output. But the world cheapest and fastest supercar, the 2013 Nissan GT-R has an edge over it in this 2013 Lexus LFA vs 2013 Nissan GT-R contest.
