I'm lucky enough to own an Nsx but dont think I will have the coin to every purchase a LFA. I love the LFA so much

Same here. Aside from a miracle, I'll never own an LFA. The NA1 and NA2 really are the only NSX's I can own. I don't think I'll even be able to afford the new NSX when it comes out used like I did when I bought my two NSX's. I'm just happy I am fortunate enough to drive an NSX currently. As a metter of fact I drove it in who work today. Never had a bad day driving the NSX.

Some great write ups. I luv the LFA, but is it truly worth $100,000.00 more than a 458?

i haven't driven a 458 in particular so it's hard for me to quantify. but i do know 458 owners who have driven the lfa and they like the lfa a lot still.

moreover, please don't get fooled by the base price of the 458. a 458 with reasonable options they all get into low 300s easily, so personally i say it's more about 50k difference.

at that point, it comes down to the drive and a lot of other factors. for one if you ask me? i think the lfa will go on for a lot more miles before any crazy service / maintenance / rebuild

The LFA is also a rarer treat to see on the streets even around here where 458's are somewhat 'common'.
