Lexus is looking to cash in on The Fast and the Furious by releasing a new video that shows Paul Walker test driving an LFA.

Filmed to celebrate the fact that two LFAs have 30,000 miles (48,280 km) on the odometer, the clip showcases the cars being driven at Willow Springs International Raceway in California.

The clip is a little dry, but Lexus says the video shows the durability of the supercar as the models have only had oil, brake and tire changes. As Walker explains "They get driven hard and they get put to bed wet."

As refresher, the LFA features a 4.8-liter V10 engine that develops 560 HP (412 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed transmission which enables the supercar to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
