How can you go wrong with a three-lap race between some of the world’s greatest sports cars? Well, you can’t. This video roundup pits the Lexus LFA, the Nissan GT-R, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, and the Ferrari F430 GT3 against one another in a three-lap battle at Japan’s Fuji Circuit.
There is just under 3000 hp between the racers here, and engine sizes coming in six-, eight-, and ten-cylinder flavors, two of which use a form of forced induction. There are different engineering mentalities at play, ranging from ultra-lightweight (the Porsche) to all-out thrust and power (the Corvette). Four out of the five in the field are rear-wheel drive (the GT-R is the lone all-wheel drive offering), and two place their engines behind the passenger cabin. The most powerful of the bunch -- the ZR1 -- produces 638 hpwhile the meekest -- the GT-R - puts down “just” 530 hp (the GT-R).The final pole positions of the five cars may surprise you -- but even if they don’t, the video below is still worth a watch for any supercar fan.
