Thanks for posting.

I would not be surprised if this was the list of cars for the next season. Previously, Clarkson had admittedly distanced himself from the LFA because of the Lexus badge.

Now that he has driven it and absolutely loved it, he might have lobbied to bring the car back.

I really wanted to know if any of them would've picked the LFA.

This is so ironic, all the haters say the LFA is just made up of Toyota parts bin badged to a Lexus...and sadly its always among the ranks of exotics like the ones in the video.

Yeah,

He initially did not have a lot of praise for the LFA, but it's good to know that he has seen the light and gotten past his non-European vehicle bias.

Hi mate, yeah he kept going back to it saying how impressed he was. The final video I shot was edited as there was a lot of chat and got a bit boring, but I know I filmed him saying that. So I was searching for the raw footage but I must of binned it after the final version. Hammond went for the Mustang, I can't remember what May chose but I am certain Clarkson went for the LFA.
I wouldn't like to say for sure if it is to be featured in the next TG, but he did say he had recently tested it, so based on that I would say so.

Thanks for the detail man.

Yes, we posted his review in sunday times a couple of months back and was gushing over it. I really hope he does a video of it since Top Gear is very good at making entertaining videos.

Watch "Part 8" on YouTube. Hammond chose the Morgan, May initially chose the LFA then changed his mind, and Clarkson chose the LFA with great praise. Thanks for the original post!

Yeah, Clarkson called it "a spectacularly superb car" and Hammond asked him "do you really think this car is 5 times better than the Nissan GTR??" (interestingly, this is the question Clarkson originally asked Hammond when TopGear featured the LFA) and Clarkson replied "yes, it is!".

Found the video by a different poster.

You can see Clarkson, May and Hammond discussing their most favorite exotic supercars. Clarkson mentions how 2 years ago he refused to drive the LFA.

Clarkson and May picked the Lexus LFA as their most favorite car and Hammond picked the Morgan. Clarkson also replies to Hammond that he believes LFA feels 5 times better than the Nissan GTR (which originally Clarkson asked Hammond 2 years ago in the TG show).

Quite a 180 from 2 years ago when Clarkson said "Honestly, I cannot understand what Lexus was thinking when they made this car".

At about 7:18 in that last video, they're filming something again in a few weeks on the LFA. Did I hear that right? LFA on Top Gear again without the "But it's a Lexus!" comments?
