Longtime Lexus fan and professional skater Tony Hawk was recently loaned a brand new 2012 Lexus LFA for his birthday.
Rather than simply drive the car around for a couple days, Hawk decided to jump over it with his skateboard and then let the world know via Twitter.
This video recording of the event shows that Hawk relied on a small ramp to get sufficient ‘air’ to jump over the car, but it’s still fun to watch.
Hawk hasn’t mentioned if he’s interested in buying one of Lexus’ $375,000 LFA supercars but he certainly is a fan of the brand, having already purchased a LS 600h and SC 430, both of which he had modified.
First unveiled at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show, Lexus’ LFA supercar is one of the fastest production cars currently on sale. In standard trim the car develops 552 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque from its naturally-aspirated 4.8-liter V-10 engine and when equipped with its optional Nürburgring Package will lap the famous German race track the package is named after in just 7:14.64.
We're not sure about Tony but if we had the cash we sure wouldn't mind having an LFA in our garage.
