No, that would be the GT1, which murders the CGT by the way. And is this not Toyota's first hypercar? How are you not applying the same logic. I think maybe you didn't think that point through.

And this is an easy to drive, relatively comfortable, missile with a slushbox...which is much better handling, and a much lower cost to boot.

Is this not a limited production run car? Are there not Toyota fanatics? Fine, not the the same extent, but they exist. And you don't get fanatics UNLESS you build cars like this!

How do these arguments not apply to the Lexus again???

To the contrary, I think many people buy these cars as their are at the pinnacle of automotive engineering. This car most certainly is, in addition to being the first from Toyota (same logic you incorrectly applied to the CGT)
