Post LFA on the cover of February duPont Registry

As I reported in the special edition issue the LFA was picked by the Dupont Registry as best new exotic.

Well its now on newstands as the regular February 2011 issue. It looks GLORIOUS on the powerful cover in black, yellow and white letters. The issue is $6.95.

There are two pages on the LFA to read inside.

I will go check out this magazine at the local store. The last one I saw had the Porsche 911 GTS on the front page. Hopefully, now they will have this one available.

Just saw it today, and read the article .

They had very positive words for the LFA, calling it "an exotic among exotics". Very high praise indeed.

Also interesting, they mentioned the LFA name stands for Lexus Fuji Alpha (as opposed to Apex which I believe was confirmed here on CL?). They said "Alpha" in the name means the LFA is the "first edition" (their words) in a series of exotics.

To me, that says Dupont is implying there will be LFA successors.

Now the most important question is, how accurate is their information? Does the A stand for Apex or Alpha?

I bought the magazine yesterday. Read the article as well. It has two pages on LFA in it. Mostly the standard stuff that everyone has already heard about several times.

The last phrase goes like "Lexus LFA is an exotic amongst the exotics".

A big picture of a white LFA going through the corkscrew almost no clearance from the asphalt and the wheels nearly hugging the fenders in the turn is a gorgeous picture.
