Word on the Tokyo auto show floor is that the Lexus LF-A supercar is a no show because it's not fast enough.

Lexus wants it to reach 350 kp/h but it'll only touch 330 kp/h. That's 205 mph. Seems fast enough to us, but Lexus wants the LF-A to be faster than all its rivals. To reach the mark, Lexus has put the car back on the drawing board for an aerodynamics redo.

Acura is in a similar situation with its V10 supercar. Acura wants the front-engine coupe to be a grand tourer. Think Acura DB9. But the car's styling got a thumbs-down from the public at the 2006 Los Angeles Auto Show when it was shown as the Acura Advance Aero Coupe. It too is getting reshaped.

Thanks To Luxurious for the tip.
