Only Jay has the $$$ to bring a film crew to the LFA factory. I wonder how much he offered to pay for that LFA Spyder???? Nice find btw.

LFA must be a spiritual revelation and a method of praying for Buddhists. The chief engineer must not have been off-base by describing LFA's sound as "angels singing".

The matte black LFA was bought by a Buddisht monk and that is the only possession he will have in this world. What an incredible story.

Sweet sound! Would be nice if Lexus invited all the LFA owners around the world to Fuji Speedway with their LFA's

Apparently, Leno did nearly 190 mph with the top down in that LFA with the engine/exhaust howling in his ears. Must be quite the experience. No wonder he is so gobsmacked by the car.

Coming from someone who owns a Mclaren F1, Porsche Carrera GT etc., definitely his opinion weigh very heavily in the automobile enthusiast community.

This was so much fun to watch.

It also provided a trivia answer, the vert has no top so can't have the top down.

Great to see Leno give credit where it is due, particularly on the point that the car temp, etc is not out of range when the car is being pushed on the track.
