Great pics, particularly of the Bond bad guys

Bean counting question

Does 178 represent only the sold to somebody cars or does that include receipt of prototypes (at least 2)?

178 represents the number of production cars out of the 500, it does not include prototypes and pre-production cars. so with the fact that lexus corp still has the yellow p014 here in the US, you can say there are 179 (the matte black one is gone). but then we also know some cars got exported out of the US already too so it makes it a little tricky.

178 represents the LFAs have been sent to the United States. Lexus USA took the additional LFA allocation from the estimated 150 they originally reported. This count does not include the 3 pre production (close to production) LFA's that made it on US Soil:

1) LFA PXXX - Matte Black > Pearl White > Pearl Gray > Wrapped Orange > Matte Black
2) LFA PXXX - Whitest White (Lexus Europe's car which was only borrowed for the LFA Miami Event)
3) LFA P014 - Pearl Yellow

Oh, interesting. I never realized they were both mostly identical.

Not the direction I'd have gone in, but, you know, not judging. It's still pretty awesome.

Thanks Flipside
I remember the bump up to the 170s but I thought the final nu,ber was supposed to be 174
Now we need a spreadsheet of all the builds
In terms of deliveries it looks like a bit over 60 cars have not been sold to date (a real shame considering how much fun the car is to drive)
That is further muddied by dealers that took delivery and have them for sale

Are you pulling that from AutoTrader? If so, that's not necessarily accurate. A lot of dealerships auto-post to AutoTrader the instant a car hits their inventory, so long as the customer has not taken delivery yet (despite being spoken for).

Not sure how often they purge those listings...

From the published sales figures through Jan 2013 about 111 were sold
Some of the listings (I do not know how many are dealers that took delivery, drove the car and have been trying to sell it) like the red car at McGrath fit the category

Oh. Interesting. Thanks for that detail. I appreciate it!

Have these figures been posted here somewhere that I can acquire them?

(And yeah, it's a bit of a shame. Although, I'm hoping at least one good one, that hasn't been abused, will still be around in a couple months.)
