The audio in this video was recorded with in-ear binaural microphones. If you wear headphones, your mind won't be blown, but it will go, "woah."

I'm also the producer for the Winding Road YouTube Channel:

Here on TheTopher, I'm known for putting a camera on my face and driving cars. Whether it's about any of my personal cars or reviews on weekly test vehicles, the goal is to give you an idea of what a certain car is like to drive or live with. Most of my videos are filmed in POV, with my clothes on, and (for like the 5th time) with in-ear binaural audio. Which, if I haven't made it clear yet, is why you should wear headphones. Because of the whole "woah" factor. It's there, trust me. Try it, you'll see! Or don't. As long as you whitelist me on your adblocker I'm okay with whatever you do or don't do with regards to headphone usage. That is all. Oh and I guess you should also probably subscribe. Why are you still reading this, you should be watching the video. With headphones! Hah, had to sneak that in there one more time. Later!

      Correction - transmission is a 10-speed, no idea why my mouth said 6-speed in this review. Lexus hasn't had a 6-speed performance offering in ages.

      +Jay S. To get that high gas milage rating with a n/a high compression v8. Prob at least 3-4 gears are overdrive gears.

      Viraj Sivaprasad extremely good fuel economy for a performance V8 and longevity. I got 34 mpg highway on eco mode in my ISF.

      I believe Lexus uses those 4 extra gears in between the 6 regular ones to provide a smoother power delivery. At least it sounds like it.

      The only Lexus that works with its space styling. The 2 door coupe tempers the trapezoidal lines.

      I hope the rear fenders (leadind edge) have paint protection on them because they are going to see a lot of road debris with how wide they are

      Given the aspect it's a luxury GT car, 471 hp is very respectable and I feel many reviewers have failed in treating it as a full blown sports car.

      I need a 2wd Tacoma with that power train with the same torque vectoring rear diff. That would be a blast.

      Man, your channel is GREAT. Like an american version of AutoTopNL. So much better than having to look at obnoxious UK isntagram bitches faces. Hahahahaha keep up the amazing work.
      Also, watching this in 2019, I gotta say the LC F might have been a beter basis for the new Supra.

      LOOKS PRETTY IN GENERAL BUT SEAMS TO HAVE A BAD CHASSIS, BAD ELECTRONIC TC ETC, AND BAD GEARBOX... SO ANNOYING. ALSO THAT LINE ON THE A PILLAR WHERE THE DOOR TRIM MEATS THE DASH IS MAKING LEXUS LOOK LIKE AMATEURS.... COMING FROM AN RS5 OWNER.
