You are right. I used the wrong terminology. I read the word 'crippled' in the description so I used it as a synonym, but yeah definitely not the right word.

Roy will be at my 1sicklexus meet tomorrow. I'll chat with him again and maybe try to get an interview for everyone here to find out more about him and his passion for cars and the LFA

That is awesome. Looking forward to that.

Can you get some videos of his LFA as well??

Just to make things interesting, ask him some details about his 2nd #500 LFA and also ask him if he has tried Lexus LFA's launch control system??

Even for someone with $4,000,000 in liquid assets, buying a $400,000 is probably pushing it, although it's feasible someone could still afford an LFA with a $4M net worth. $40M is more reasonable, though.

Forbes had an article that said of all people who buy exotic sports cars that cost > $300,000, they have on average (meidan, actually - not average) $25 million in liquid assets. Now that sounds far more reasonable.

If you have $25M in liquid assets, you can certainly afford to write a $400,000 check for a toy.

Got to chat with Roy yesterday, he stole the show when he pulled up. We parked his LFA next
To a near identical color GS F sport. Great guy again, told him we love him on the forum so he may post up.

I'll have a couple pics soon.

Awesome.

Thanks for letting him know how much he is appreciated in the Lexus community for being such a great ambassador for the LFA and showcasing it to everyone like one could only hope for.

He must be a great guy and a great enthusiast to buy and LFA and take people for rides. What I liked was how enthusiastic and knowledgable he was about the car. I friends in LA who drive some insane cars but I feel like they are into the car more for the image than passion, design, engineering, and technology.
