The Subaru Legacy Spec B is not a car you hear often about, although it is pretty good so it could be called a well kept secret.

It’s not an outright driver’s car, but it is a proper performance sedan, with all-wheel drive, trick suspension from the Impreza WRX and the turbocharged four-banger from the same model.

Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, BMW, m5, test, Videos on 06 1st, 2011

We guess we needn’t tell you that BMW is almost ready with their 2012 M5 model. Believed to be a production version of the M5 concept from the BMW stables, the car comes with some amazing features that could make any motoring freak to sit up and plan his next buy.

The company has now made public a video of the car being tested. The new official video captures the high speed testing conducted at the Nardò Ring in Italy. We have been expecting to see the vehicle at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but then the new video suggest that it could be unveiled at the M Festival soon.

Though full details haven’t come by as yet, we have managed to know that the car will be pushed out of the assembly line with an aggressive body kit, a sport-tuned suspension and a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 with approximately 575 PS (423 kW / 567 bhp) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque.

The car will also sport a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and might offer all-wheel drive at a later stage.

Lexus LFA vs Nissan GTR: Who’s The Fastest? 27

Fancy what happens when you put the Lexus LFA and a Nissan GTR on a test track?  This is exactly what the guys at MotorTrend did. Pitting the Lexus LFA against almost compatriot Nissan GTR is sure to throw up interesting results. Amazing results ensue, indeed, we got to see.

The super car-like Lexus LFA, which is to come for around $400,000, has proved that it’s the best on track by finishing a notch ahead of the Nissan beauty over the quarter mile. The performance of the Lexus LFA may be attributed to the 10 year’s worth of research and development that had been on at the Lexus stables in Japan.

The 553 hp V10 Yamaha manufactured engine under the hood could be something to die for, don’t you think? A top speed of 202 mph is what you get from the LFA’s 4.8-liter, Formula-1-derived, 552-horsepower V-10.

Along the test track, the Lexus LFA might  seem like it lacks the pull compared to what the Nissan GTR boasts of, but it still impresses with a table flat torque curve, with 90% of max delivered before 4000 rpm, according to MotorTrend.

The quarter mile gets dumped in just 11.8 sec @ 123.7 mph, as against the Nissan GTR’s 11.9 sec @ 120.1 mph. That is indeed telling isn’t it? If you aren’t convinced watch the video below.
