IMO the mk4 supra looks ten times better, much cleaner.

the front of the LFA looks like a celica with a body kit.

About the specs, this car ain't worth 375000$.......that is insane. And on top of that, they say that their taking a loss??? What BS is that? How can a car weighing 3300pounds be so expensive>?

Can someone merge this thread with the other thread made by the person named sillyasian!.....

i like it but not for $375k. thats hyper-car territory...

I'm sure its quick, but I will take a 430 Scuderia AND a LP560-4 before I fork over that kind of money on a Lexus.

WTF $375,000

It should go for 150,000 at most if it wanted to compete with R8 V10 and Lp560 buyers

rear and interior are perfect and actually an improvement over the latest concept. side need to be a little more aggresive. front looks unfinish. they should have stick with the latest concept for the front and side profile and it would look perfect.

spec, should be bad ass if it can do the ring in 7:24 like lexus claimed.

$375,000, $375,000

They are smoking crack! There isn't a snowballs chance in hell I'm going to spend that much money on a car and have to explain what it is to everyone - and then on top of it explain why I paid $375,000 for a Lexus.

If I'm spending that kind of money, it's going to be a Lambo or Ferrari. Park it next to either one of those and the LF-A will be invisible.

Nice new Celica - I can't wait to see the body kits for the last gen Celica to make it look like this for about $20K.

anyone that can afford to spend 375K on a car does not need to rationalize their decision. they will sell every one. not what i would get but 9K rpm V10 is fappworthy

Well you won't be buying one so stop worrying lol.
I'm sure LFA buyers will care less about the cost aspect of it. They'll buy it because it's exclusive and that's rich people's mindset.

It has one of the best sounding exhaust notes to date. The sound alone makes it worth every penny.

I have to agree with this. I really doubt this is going to be an owner's "one and only" six-figure car, which seems like what everybody's thinking.

Interior is OK, exterior looks like a kitted Celica. Sounds like it has great performance, but a price tag of $375,000? ____LOL___

It already looks outdated.

I'd rather have a GT3 RS.

Yeah, I don't think I could ever afford it. That said, it actually looks pretty mean to me. Perhaps my next door neighbor who is a sales manager at Serramonte Lexus could give me a test drive. Perhaps...
