2012 LFA vs 2010 GT-R.

What gives a vehicle the super-car status? Price tag? Exotic mid-engine? Styling? Performance? Acclaimed by Media? There isn't much agreement on this, but to me it seems like the price-tag and a huge engine play the major role in super-car title acclamation. LFA's 4.8 liter V10 produces 552 horsepower and has a top speed of 201 MPH, can that be considered a super car engine? Not sure, but the price-tag of 375 thousand dollars sure can be. Considering the price-tag, the Lexus LFA is the first super-car to come out of Japan, the 2000GT the NSX and the GT-R, either lack engine displacement or the price-tag is too low. In this video Motortrend puts Lexus's first super-car against the most iconic vehicle that came out of Japan, the GT-R. At roughly 1/4 of the price, the GT-R puts up a great challenge, and don't forget this is the 2010 GT-R, the 2012 model had some horsepower revision and does 0-62 in 2.9 second, which is enough to smoke the LFA at the quarter of a mile.
