Description
The first Lexus supercar, the LFA serves as the flagship for the F portfolio of Lexus performance models and redefines the supercar for the 21st century. The Lexus F brand complements the core Lexus DNA by emphasizing serious
performance. The LFA was carefully developed from a blank canvas by a small and dedicated team of hand-picked engineers that pushed every possible dynamic boundary. All 500 LFA supercars will be hand-assembled by skilled technicians in the “Lexus LFA Works” at the Motomachi Plant in Toyota City at a rate of no more than 20 per month.

We will have more Live Coverage from Las Vegas this week!!!!

Well its Official now.. !!

This Tuesday (11/3) inside the Lexus venue @ SEMA 2009 - Las Vegas..
We will be debuting the 2010 Lexus IS350 C built by VIP Auto Salon, Inc.

Congratulations to Clark Ishihara owner of VIP Auto Salon, Inc.

One of the shortest build times for this project I have ever seen, yet executed perfectly in my honest opinion.

Being personally involved in portions of this SEMA build, was truly an Exciting Experience for me as well..!!!

It's about time they made new F-sport wheels.. Maybe they'll keep working to get more designs out. But im liking those Concaved Advan RS's on the 0-60 build
