Sports cars automakers have ascended the auto industry’s ladder to become some of the most popular and consumer friendly in the whole world.

Us roads are filled with mainly compact sedans and big bulky pick ups, trucks and SUVs. That's what's mainstream right now in the US, your daily commuter for the average person. A car that would go A to B just fine. But many of us want something with style and the power to go, we prefer cars with a character. Something that will reflect a part of our personality. A machine that is worth remembering for days to come. Lexus is a manufacturer that provides the three key ingredients for the perfect combination - power, style, reliability.  We organized the fastest models and packages that rolled out with the LEXUS logo on their bonnet, Here's our list of :

"The Fastest 9 LEXUS cars !" 

2010 Lexus LFA 480 000$

552 bhp / 4.8L / 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds / 202mph / 1480kg

The first LF-A concept premiered in 2005, followed in 2007 by a second LF-A with a more completely furnished interior and exterior. The third version of the LF-A, a roadster model, premiered in 2008. The production model, trademarked LFA, was shown at the Tokyo Motor Show in October 2009.

Akio Toyoda, CEO of parent company Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) saw the LFA as an opportunity to create a global icon for the Lexus brand, embodying Akio's idea that the ultimate Lexus should connect with its owner.

The production Lexus LFA features a new even firing V10 engine and a carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) body. CFRP materials account for 65 percent of the LFA's body composition by mass. The LFA went into production in late 2010 making it one of the most expensive Japanese road cars ever built. Production ended in December 2012 with 500 vehicles completed.

The Lexus LFA is powered by a 72-degree bank angle 4.8-liter V10 engine equipped with dual VVT-i carrying the 1LR-GUE designation with a maximum output of 412 kW (560 PS) delivered at 8,700 rpm. Its maximum torque output of 480 N·m (354 lb·ft) arrives at 6,800 rpm, 90 percent of which is available from 3,700 rpm. The engine redlines at 9,000 rpm, but with a fuel cutoff set at 9,500 rpm,and is constructed using forged aluminum pistons, forged titanium connecting rods, and solid titanium valves. The V-angle of the LFA's V-10 engine is set to 72-degrees (as opposed to the 90-degree V angle present in a Dodge Viper's V-10) to fully balance the firing force from the pistons. This 72-degree angle allows for even firing from the pistons without the use of a split-journal crankshaft, thus improving engine efficiency as well as lowering overall weight. Dry sump lubrication prevents engine oil starvation through high speed corners and lowers the engine's center of mass. Air is fed directly from beneath the hood through a visible slit passing into a dual stage variable intake manifold and then into ten individual throttle bodies before finally exiting from a dual-stage titanium muffler.
