Lexus did that spoiler very tastefully since there is a fine line between the "ricer" look versus a very purposeful looking spoiler that genuinely looks from a track racing car.
My comment was made from an owner perspective who'd see this big wing every day.

Translation: Stay out of grown folks convo However, I do love the look of the wing as well.

Q: Is the Nurburgring designed to be a daily driver?

I'm back to feeling the color Black. But just this one so far....

Agreed that this version of LFA in Gengars' Blue would be absolutely phenomenal. Please let there be a weathly person with enough taste and vision to make this happen and share.

Yes, it is designed to be a daily driver. Although, many less hardcore cars come with competition racing compound super-slick tires, The NE LFA still wears Potenza RE70 dry/wet street tires that don't hydroplane in storm conditions and heavy rain.

Regarding the spoiler, all 24-hours Nurburgring racing cars wear similar functional spoilers for downforce and it is not for "show", but the bonus is that it looks great. It is a matter of subjective opinion whether one likes it or not.

The last update has my unit planned for Nov production. It probably won't make it to my garage until early next year.

Don't get me wrong, I like the look of the spoiler too, but I think it would get old very quickly if I see it on a daily basis.

i also agree with that. it's cool for about 10 mins and then i would get tired too driving it every day.

kind of how i look at the SV as well, it's nice, but for "daily", i kind of think the LP looks better

I agree as well and in my comment, I meant I could only see myself looking at the spoiler in black on a daily basis. Doesn't look 'added on' as it does with the other colors. Understand it's functional purpose but flows together when one color with the body.

Would be interesting to see if I like it any better if it were color matched in another color.

So I was wondering how the guy got the car home with all the plastic on and no plates.

A few googles and it looks like the family biz, Ebrahim Kanoo includes being the distributor for Toyota and Lexus for the whole country.

It also looks like Ebrahim Kanoo is separate from a bigger family biz, the Kanoo group.

^ I think the answer is self explanatory..... (in your google finds)

They have ordered a few of our exhausts, for their IS-F's

If LFA production is ahead of schedule, you can potentially have the last LFA made. They did say last month of production is January 2013, but the first few production LFA's were made in October of 2010 rather than December of 2010.
