Lexus recently made the LFA Nurburgring Edition supercar compete with the Eclipse 500 jet in Longmont, Colo. Both vehicles went down a 4,800-foot runway before they pulled a u-turn to cover the same distance. It doesn’t come as a surprise that the LFA won by just two seconds. The jet had gone past the starting line already moving 150 knots (around 173 mph) at which point Scott Pruett, who drives the LFA, stepped on the gas. The car and plane would cover the runway’s distance before making the u-turn to drive the same distance. Nonetheless, there are questions being raised. Some want to know if the jet would have gained more speed after making its turn. Its agility is also in question. Some believe the pilot could have shaved two seconds if it banked harder.
