lexus LFA smoking up Long Beach

This Lexus LFA is taken through its paces by talented drift champion Daijiro Yoshihara.

This is the 32nd LFA to be made out of only 500 sold at the time of this video, making this probably one of the more exclusive cars to be taken for a slide around an arena. There is some serious rear-wheel drive action for the first part of the video, but we hit a sudden and unexpected stop around 1.30 in as a nail puts paid to the back left tyre. Plenty of sidewards action and smoke to begin with, this video is something of an anti-climax after that.
