Top Gear’s supercar showdown
Five of this year’s finest supercars, plus some perfect roads and errant livestock. Sound like heaven? It’s certainly close

At least they have what must surely be 2010's five most compelling-looking cars to distract them. I'm still buzzing from my rapid-fire drive, but it's time to get a proper handle on these things. Pat D dismisses the LFA as a mutant Supra, and the truth is that this is an eternally gestating motor-show concept car that nearly didn't make it out of the starting blocks at all. But it's also the number one crowd-stopper and though not all the people we speak to like it, everyone wants to know what it is. And then they all want to know how much it costs, and are naturally rather surprised to hear that it's 340 big ones. Lexus will lose money on every carbon-bodied LFA it sells, which only underlines the madness at work here.
