Very cool. Great to see even after having driven much newer supercars and hypercars like McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder, Huracan, McLaren 650s and Ferrari LaFerrari etc., he always keeps going back to the LFA as his most favorite car ever.

After a month of ownership, I must concur. This car puts a huge smile on my face every time I drive it.
At times, I still cannot believe how Lexus pulled off a car this incredible on their very first try. Just extraordinary.

I think perhaps it can only be explained by the 'no expense spared' approach to design and manufacture, coupled with the driving dynamics and experience really being determined by a single man who knew exactly how he wanted the car to feel and was obsessive about testing and re-testing until he achieved it.

It is always great to hear your opinions.

I just read Telegraph UK interview of Clarkson where he talks about the LFA. It had been a rumor he had been searching to buy one. This interview subliminally says he had been looking around for one.

Quote:

Clarkson claims the Lexus LFA was the best car he ever drove on Top Gear.

Editor of www.PistonHeads.com, Dan Trent was surprised.

"An unexpected choice for Clarkson, especially given the drubbing he gave the last Lexus to appear on Top Gear," he said.

"But the LFA is something special, a one-off supercar built with obsessive attention to detail that took a decade to go from concept to reality. They very rarely come up for sale and the last one we had on www.PistonHeads.com was priced at £440,000. Lexus never made anything like it before and never will again. For that it's a proper hero car."
