Lexus LFA: Hot lap from the jump seat

So, I should issue this warning: If you're prone to motion sickness, you probably shouldn't watch this. Seriously. If "The Blair Witch Project" left you reeling, don't hit play.

I had the opportunity to take a hot lap with a professional driver in the Lexus LFA on the track at the Autobahn Country Club and recorded the experience. Or at least I tried to. The sound of the sport shift is awesome, and you do at least get some sense of the curvaceous track. I noticed the driver was regularly getting up to 110 mph going into those sharp turns, so I asked how fast he got on the straightaway. His response: I don't know, I was too afraid to look.

I think he was kidding.
