Default Top Gear Magazine: Jeremy Clarkson "[LFA] still the best car I have ever driven"

Thanks to krew@lexusenthusiast.com

These guys found scans of the article online. I was about to buy it and scan it, but looks like it is moot point now

Where all the haters at now !?

Lexus must be very happy with that review. One of theist people o. Earth to have a reason to be impressed with Lexus is Clarkson.

Anyone know if this is this the current issue (on newsstands now), a past issue, or a future issue?

I hear Barnes & Noble carries them, and I'd like to pick up a copy if it isn't too late...

It is the February 2013 edition.

It is (or will be shortly) available at the newstand so you can pick it up.

Saw his review in the latest episode of Top Gear, he was as giddy as a school girl the whole time he was behind the wheel, although I think we'd all feel that way

It really provides the exclamation point for the LFA's 2 year run. Jeremy has been unapologetic of his dislike for most Lexus products and here here is claiming its the best car or one of the best cars he has ever driven and would choose it over pretty much anything. He also understands why it costs so much and why price means nothing, this car is worth it.

Lexus could not ask for a better endorsement and lol at the LFA haters. Great job Lexus.

How funny, Lexus takes the cake for both the Best Car Ever Driven via LFA and the Worst Car Ever via SC430 according to TOP GEAR. Hilarious!

The only thing haters would be capable of saying, would be that Lexus paid a huge amount of money to Clarkson to write a review with such luscious praises.

I just wish if I could drive an LFA before dying now. This car to be that much special for someone like Clarkson to praise it.

Really?? That article (including the new Top Gear episode of the LFA that I took the quote for my signature from it) sounds like mocking to you??? That is some great stuff you must be taking.

Top Gear Episode 2 Season 19

"If I were given a choice of picking one car out of all the cars that have ever existed, I would pick a dark blue LFA over any other. That is how much I love this car."
