    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.

                He didn't mention this, but from what I understood it was a great handling car aswell, fisty and requiring skill. 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.

                  Toyota should throw in a MKV badge and call it a day.

                            they made 300 RC F track editions (or still making them if you order) and they made 500 LFA's, because its hard to find customers for the LFA, also its not designed to get sold like porsches, its special. *AND* it was build in 2008. you know what lamborghini had in 2008? the fucking gallardo with the ugly back, and the murcilago with the stupid wings. This Car was the Future in 2008.

                            Toyota takes their time to make something special, something they could not afford with the mkv supra

                                This should of been the influence of the new Supra, not a BMW.

                                        My only issue with magnesium being used in the engine, is in an impact magnesium explodes into flames.

                                          They could have made this exact car, with aluminum instead of carbon fiber, Developed it in 5 years instead of 10 years and they would have had a GTR level Sports car with an affordable pricetag and a ton of people would have bought it, but they went too hard with the LFA, its true, Too much of a good thing is a bad thing. 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.

                                                    Lexus didn't fall... if you were worried about cost of the LFA? You can't afford 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. 🤩🤩

Sad we care so much about branding engineering than quality that this car didn't even sell it's limited production and more like it imo should have. Also, a halo car can mean a brand's main model. Like the GTR with Nissan and the 911 for Porsche etc. Good work as always though.
