LFA in person

At a recent exotic car meet in Seattle (Redmond to be exact) Lexus of North America brought out their LFA demo car. First one here in the PNW. Let me tell you guys, this thing looks and sounds AMAZING! Enjoy

Delicious. Look at the interior build quality and unique exhaust. Worth every penny!

The LF-A is my favorite NA supercar. The MP4-12C is my favorite FI supercar.

Can't say I'm sold on the looks, but the exhaust does sound intoxicating. For the price, I'd much rather pick up a LP 700-4.

I AGREE... I have seen so many vids on the car and no one in my area has one yet..

A couple weeks ago I saw a Spiker C8 flying around..

Though I appreciate the development and times thats gone into producing this car, I think it's horrible looking.....and wayyyyyyyyyyy overpriced.

I'll take an aventador over this all day

Of course the Aventador is one of the sexiest Supercars on earth today, but IMO it is only biuld to show off and turn heads. It is not the drivers car.

We're still on this?
A car that costs almost half a million dollars can't be overpriced. Because people with real money don't cross shop exotics! Nobody that has 400k+ to spend on a toy needs to worry about what car gives the most "value".

The fact is the car was designed to reach certain technical and performance goals and cater to a certain kind of client and it has succeeded.

That is all I am going to say on the LFA topic which has been done to death by people who can't afford the car in the first place.

Exactly. This is the most often quote I hear from people: "For the money I'd rather get [x car]." Uhmm... Correction. NO. For the money, you'd ALREADY own the [x car]. Nobody shops for a $400,000 car with a $400k bank account. Duh...

If I had the money, I would love to own one. That engine note is enough to make u cream in your pants. I'd take one in a 6 speed manual though if they had offered it like that
