I don't think those 4 giant holes on the rear grills are exhaust port at all, they could be active aerodynamic vent holes like the ones found in the taillights location on the 599XX:
Active aero is one of the next big thing in exotic cars I think.
Engineering wise, it makes very little sense that they would re-route the exhaust to right behind the radiators just for looks, and it is almost impossible to relocate those 2 radiators, it is a major change to the entire packaging of the car. I say the exhaust is still in the same lower central location, just hidden behind those huge diffuser.
i would worry how far it can go at full throttle first
to me it's very possible that this is lfa shell but they are testing something internal, could be for concept, lfa2, etc...
i don't think lfa success should be measured by its sales or popularity, at least to toyota. they know they lose money with every lfa made anyway. but the technology and r&d behind is what they aim for and hopefully what pays off over time.
Yes, I drove it. The great feeling of boiling blood.
it has? lfa is awesome, but almost no one i know has ever heard of it.
Wow. What would make you say that. The LFA contrary to anti-Lexus people and Lexus haters has made quite a shot around the world. B/C even people that dislike it know about it. Its quite talked about in the industry too and its name is rarely ommitted when the talk of new exotics comes up. At SEMA last year the first car you saw walking in was a LFA used by Falken.

Besides, didn't you say there isn't a Lexus dealership anywhere near where you live now ? so ...
I am stunned quite frankly.
