The price is steep, but the cost is even greater. Ten years of development and some interesting technology pushed the cost per vehicle greater than the actual purchase price.

Here is another video on Lexus Magazine of Justin Bell driving and discussing the car.

rumor has it that lexus/toyota is taking a BIG loss in producing the LFA,
they just wanted to put it into production to shut everyone that
was skeptical about lexus/toyota not being able to do it.

I missed this the first time around.
What a hell of a sound!


As for the technology, I barked the first time I heard the price. But it's a pure carbon fiber monocoque (sp?) cabin. It's not your basic Ferrari or Porsche. This is more F1 car than street car.

Amazing.

It sure is amazing. What RX was saying is true, the technology and manufacturing time spend building and re-building (first made from aluminum, then carbon) has made the ammount invested in developing the car and doing wind tunnel testing, uber high. But the beauty of it, is all the technology they spent on it, will be pushed through other models

this is a car that has taken alot of the styling and some of the technology from it, so that will all flow through toyota and hopefully produce something away from the ugly styling they have been leaning towards

isnt a skyline 80K USD vs LFA 300K USD?

u can buy a skyline, blow up the transmission 3 times before the price of a LFA.

ps: the digital tach is too sensitive, it looks like its having a seizure while moving arnd.

Yes if you had the money you could by 4-5 Skylines for yourself and your freinds and still have money left over to rent a track to race against your freinds.


As for the digital tack it needed to be to keep up with the revs as a mechanical couldn't! lol
