Rod: The Algarve track marshals didn't seem to mind though... BTW m8 did you notice the Toyota people hanging around the press area?... I am praying they commit the LFA to the GT1 series next year! I need to hear than singing V10 in person... especially in GT1 spec!

Jonathan: The marshals had it tough: there were very few huts for them to shelter from the sun. Marshals are the unsung heroes of motorsport! But yes, a Toyota would be most welcome: though for me I'd prefer something a bit more 'real' than the LFA. We'll see what is conjured up in the next six months! There could be some exciting things coming in GT1!

A bit more real?

There have been two public events just in the past 2 months at Local dealerships...
Lexus of Westminster & Longo Lexus

and then the 3rd one the other day at Lexus of Glendale. (which I missed)

I guess he's meaning more 'real world' or 'obtainable'. Which is a laugh because the Maserati it's to replace isn't even for sale any longer! lol The guy is just biased it seems. It'd be welcome, BUT... when you see a but there's reason to suspect he's not keen on seeing another limited edition car or he just doesn't think another Japanese make is any good, something...

good vid rolla... "forget the audi" haha, the best thing I heard besides that exhaust note in that video. Tanner was talking about the top speed run, I didn't hear him clearly though, too much other noise in the vid.

Forget no longer on sale, when it **was** on sale (it pre-sold) if I'm not mistaken, less than 60 were built TOTAL. This is GT1, if anywhere these cars should be racing is here. He can suck it.

Actually I meant to put that they're no longer in production. Which is fine and all, but another thing is that the guy is saying he'd like to see something more 'real' well, the MC12 is real- real rare! Like you said only such and 50 (besides the Corsa cars) were ever made. The MC12 wasn't allowed in series like ALMS because of the cars dimensions. It basically could be as fast as a LMP car save for weight penalties. It definitely is the class of the field STILL in FIA GT1, and in previous seasons of FIA GT. I think it won the championships 3 times already, and it's only been racing fully since 2005. It finished 3rd it's first race in 2004, then the next race it won. Then the next year, 2005, it won the championship. The car is amazing, and even with the smaller wing, it's still at the front and will more than likely win the championship again this year.

Good pictures. I like the lower angle shots, to show off how low to the ground the car sits. In comparison to an average man's height, the roof line sits near your hips. That's pretty low slung.

Sounds about right. The guys at Vitaphone are a pretty solid crew too, I hope the LFA can even do half as well if this rumor turns out to be true.

Sorry that I haven't had a chance to add some text to the pictures above, but I was just extremely excited and wanted to get them up!

Anyway, even with how spectacular this car is, the one thing that amazes me most is how many people know what an LFA is! This was a private event at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens so the car showed up early, and as you might imagine everyone within a mile radious came running, snapping pictures saying, "IT'S AN LFA! IT'S THE LEXUS SUPERCAR! IS THAT AN LFA!?!?!" - I'm talking young and old, male and female, all walks of life. Everyone knew what the car was, which really surprised me.

Even this morning while discussing our weekends, I commented to my coworker that I drove the LFA and three heads turn around and said, "THE LEXUS LFA SUPERCAR?!?!?!"

Anyway, the car is just amazing. I will leave it at that. There are no words, no comparisons...it's like an automotive body suit with superman as the driver.
