Jay was blasting around on this one off and never pointed to an issue like body flex or any noises typically experienced in a poorly executed convertible issue of a coupe.
Also, I believe in previous videos, a CF roll bar was present. Any ideas if this was remove able, retractable or is there another LFA vert out there?
Yeah I'm very curious too. Lexus's first attempt at a topless LFA looked ugly because of the added CF roll bar and it was a clear indication that the car needed
that kind of reinforcement to maintain its rigidity. This one however has no roll bar and yet JL did not complain about it. Either Lexus did some hidden reinforcements to the car's body and/or chassis or JL simply did not push the car hard enough to notice the loss of rigidity (or the fact he did not test drive a regular LFA for comparison).
