Five cool things we saw at Toyota City

By James ClearyJames Cleary
This Lexus LFA is a pristine 'Pearl Yellow' example of the front engine, rear-drive supercar.

As the name implies, Toyota City is a Japanese metropolis created and sustained by a certain global carmaker. And near its heart sits an unsuspecting little museum. Here are five cool things we spotted inside it last week.

Toyota Tes Cross Concept – This 2014 concept sports 'arresting' chameleon paint and is powered by a 1.0-litre (1KR-SC) supercharged triple.

Toyota taking aim at Honda's S660? Toyota taking aim at Honda's S660?

Toyota Partner Robot – Nothing like a violin playing robot to keep life interesting. Only a couple of off-key twangs in each virtuoso performance.

And ASIMO apparently... And ASIMO apparently...

Lexus LFA (race) – Winner of the SP8 class at the 2010 Nurburgring 24-Hour, still wearing the grime and battle scars of an around-the-clock 'green hell' run.

Never clean 'em, you lose all the authenticity... Never clean 'em, you lose all the authenticity...

Lexus LFA (road) – A pristine 'Pearl Yellow' example of the front engine, rear-drive supercar. Heading towards 9000rpm its 4.8-litre V10 makes arguably the best sound of any road-going engine.

The LFA is undeniably cool. The LFA is undeniably cool.

Lexus F Sport bicycle – Made to mark completion of the LFA's production run in mid-2013, this carbon special features a 22-speed electronic shift system. Only 100 were made, each costing a million yen ($11,500).

The million-yen bike (yeah, only $11,500... but still...) The million-yen bike (yeah, only $11,500... but still...)
