Lexus LF-A Prototype

Lexus sure got it right with this car!  It looks like they're going to produce it.

The Lexus LF-A is an exotic GT car concept. It's powered by a newly-developed 500-horsepower V-10 engine that is capable of pushing the car beyond 200 mph. 

The feature that blew your webmaster away was the replacement of conventional rear- view mirrors with video cameras placed in the little stubs mounted on the "A" pillars.
This idea is long overdue.  It makes the Ray Harroun-inspired circa-1911 "elephant ear" rear-view mirrors on all other cars look not only obsolete but ridiculous.

Note advanced turbo-fan propulsion system.  Also note triple JATO boosters for quick take-off.
