Top Gear TV received a special delivery yesterday in the form of the only Lexus LFA in the UK, thankfully they returned it in the same condition as it was received – minus a few millimetres of rubber.

It was at the Top Gear studio for The Stig to set a lap time around the Dunsfold test track, but you’ll just have to wait until the program is broadcast to find out how it managed.

The episode will be broadcast on the BBC2 on January 3rd 2010, so put that in your diaries.

Meanwhile, what better excuse than to show you a video of the LFA sounding suitably exotic. Enjoy!
