              The LFA's design seems reminiscent of the Testarossa. 👌

                  I know y’all are gonna hate me for this but the only reason I don’t like the LFA and it ruins it for me is the good gap. Yes I know it’s for air intake but on any other color than black it to me looks like a sports car with a hood that it out grew over summer break

                          This thing is a masterpiece of engineering, yet it's so underappreciated. Is it because it's not 700hp+? Is it because it'a $400k? Or is it because of marketing and exclusivity? I honestly don't know!

                                                The LFA is rad car, but the people that buy or would consider buying a lexus at the time did not care about a lexus supercar. They just didn't have the pedigree, it was a huge risk, I think if this car were released now it'd do better. Lexus has really upped their performance/design game in the last few years all kind of inspired by the LFA(ironically?). Compare it's looks to any Lexus of 2011 and you can see how it influenced the current Lexus fleet.

                                                  IM very glad you brought up both the Yamaha Engine, as well as the Gauge cluster speed for mechanical; vs digital. THe whole time i was saying, they better touch on those two amazing topics.

For car lovers this is a unicorn car which already is a classic. I don't agree this is a failure. Also not mentioned, Lexus never made money out of it.

This Car was the Future in 2008.

So sad honestly, i think this car looks like a modern day supra if they would have did it right, Could you imagine? A Supra with the body like the LFA, and a newer stronger Straight 6 dubbed the 3JZ, These motherfuckers in these toyota board rooms cant think of simple shit like this. They created a BMW with a supra badge on it.

                                                                                              That's the whole point of owning a HALO vehicle. The owner of Yoshida's Teriyaki here in Portland owns an LFA and I'm able to see it from time to time when I'm having my Lexus serviced. It's an absolute thing of beauty. The exhaust notes makes every hair on your body stand with goose bumps. 🤩🤩
