No pictures, just videos. Feel free to add (especially since I ordered in Pearl Blue!)

I understand the "limited edition endurance" model etc. But still...
Almost every LFA is going to be multi-color because of the vents.

I don't like the front side-splitter thing on the NB edition, it doesn't look like it fits right. I think the paint job is great however.

I don't think that is the finish NB edtition, it looks like added on pcs to the car. My thoughts the the finish product will look more polished.

I think black/red would be a better combo for the two-tone theme.

I would go Panda theme with clear coated carbon instead of black or go full clear coated carbon. Mmmmm....

I'm not a huge fan of two-tone exteriors but my car sort of has it (panoramic roof, it's all glass from windshield to hatch). It's not as noticeable if you have a darker color car however like mine.

It's not two-tone. There was never a two-tone LFA, these are just parts put on for testing. Haven't we seen the press-release for the Nurb' edition? It didn't show two tone, the rear wing was added along with a splitter and two kanards on either side of the front bumper, all were in carbon fiber, these pieces are just painted and added on, and might i add that the rear wing seems to be adjustable! Awesome. I think they just painted the black over the sides to give it a bit of an off look. Car companies do that a lot, it's like saying, "I don't like that zebra paint on the new M6" It's not going to be there. And how dare you say 'rice'! What do you call the ACR then? 'Corn'? Or how about the GT3 RS? 'Kraut'? That can be taken as a racist remark, not many Asian people I know like that word used in that terminology.

Last I checked ricer only offends said culprits. And is in no way even remotely related to race or racism. You have Asian friends? Me too! Imagine that. And they are mature enough to not care about the term and use it more than I.

2-Toned , testing parts, whatever the case. It looks FUNKY to me.

RICE = Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancements, not the food itself, I'm hungry.

rice = asian upgrades on a car.
kraut= german upgrades on a car.
corn?= american upgrades on a car.

None of them make any sense. Yeah I have asian friends, and as mature as they are it's not cool to call someone a ricer, or to say that functional parts on a car are rice. If that's the case, all racing cars with wings and splitters and kanards are rice. Not so! That's why i said it doesn't look like 'rice' and the paint was just a semi-camo job. Still looks good and rear wing looks to be an adjustable piece, probably sick fast this LFA will be.

Congrats!!!!

Ask them how would you be able to order 3 extra "F" fender badges ???

For example lets say you wanted to match the F badges from your LFA to your IS-F....

Here's a nice shot of the LFA and also good audio of engine rev at the end:

I think this is on the other side of the wall from some of those JP vids that are posted earlier in this thread.

This is correct. The wheels are not even right, it is clearly a tester. Surely Lexus is aware people will snap pics and they made it nice and bright and different for people to see (and bish about in some cases).

Knock off the baiting pictures as we know your stance on the LFA already.

Everyone keep this on the LFA and lets try to not use the term rice as clearly it is inappropriate for this level of car.
