Sparco seats! That's different interior combo as well. Never seen the carbon fiber center console outside the 'Ring editions before.

Covered in this CL thread too.... back in May..

However, Akio's rumored Matte Black LFA has been shown to be a JDM Spec RHD Model..

Along with a whole bunch of different build options...

This Matte Black LFA Prototype belongs to TRD Japan. Of course all of these cars are technically available to Akio at his request, but I have been told by an inside contact that this car is TRD Japan's Prototype LFA.

Sounds about right...!!! (not Akio's)

We have seen this one before with the TRD plates, on several occasions..

For sure at a Fuji Speedway LFA Drive Event on YouTube...!!

As a matter of fact here it is:

I do love that interior color combo for some reason. Didn't Haruhiko Tanahashi say that if he got one, he would get purple accents on the interior?

Cars like these are meant to be driven, tear and wear on them is part of their charm.

All those that keep these cars in the closet should face a penalty! Really!

That red leather doesn't look very red; otherwise, beauty.
