It may have its detractors, but there’s no denying that the 2012 Lexus LFA is a force to be reckoned with.

The sultry supercar marks both a turning point in Lexus' design and the beginning of a renewed focus for the luxury marque--one that’s almost entirely performance themed.

Comedian and television host Jay Leno was lucky enough to sample one recently for his online series Jay Leno’s Garage.

In the video, he clearly shows how enamored he is by the LFA’s advanced design and construction. In particular, he points out how much carbon fiber has been used in the car and the complex manner in which they are created.

Sixty-five percent of the LFA's body structure is carbon fiber, while the remaining 35 percent is aluminum. At its heart is a bespoke 4.8-litre V-10 engine producing 552 horsepower and 354 pound of torque, and capable of propelling the car from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds.

Sadly, there's no burn out to conclude the video.
