Lexus LFA 003 & 499 Meet For The First Time – Part 2
Photos of Lexus LFA 003 & LFA 499 have finally been released. Mr. Mallady stands proudly between these two historical Lexus LFAs. To the left is Metallic Silver 003 which was the first and to the right is LFA 499 in Steel Gray which is the last LFA to arrive in the United States.
Mr. Mallady is one of few in the world to own more than one Lexus LFA, but he is the only person in the world to own one of the first and one of the last Lexus LFA’s to roll off the Motomachi Plant in Japan. Despite the fact these that two cars are both 2012 models, they were built two years apart in a limited production run.
Mr. Mallady has stated the Lexus LFA is the best car he’s ever owned despite having owned several Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis and Porsches. He loves the LFA so much he decided to acquire a second one. Sadly Mr. Mallady has placed LFA 003 up for sale as his boss (Mrs. Mallady) has decided he could only keep one. Luckily he’s taken all of his favorite elements of LFA 003 and ordered LFA 499 to spec with a few special additions. We congratulate Mr. Mallady once again for acquiring one of the the most coveted production Lexus vehicles in history.
