Default CL Exclusive: Lexus LFA 003 & LFA 499 Unite - First & Last LFA in the USA!

The day has come as the first and last Lexus LFAs in the United States are finally united for the first time since their inception at the Motomachi Plant in Japan. This exclusive video was sent to me by Mr. Roy Mallady just now. I can only imagine the excitement that Mr. Mallady is going through right now.

Thank you Mr. Mallady and congratulations & enjoy your newest delivery!

For the record, Mallady is a huge supercar buff. He previously owned an Audi R8 V10, Lamborghini LP560-4 Gallardo, Ferrari 360, Ferrari F430 (and 4 other Ferraris previously) etc.

LFA is the only car he says he will keep until the day he dies. That really says something about the LFA. Much respect for an incredible man.

He actually has a newer iphone (sent via iMessage) but he obviously had to send it with reduced resolution over the cell network, otherwise it would have taken forever to send to me.

From the vids he seems like a very nice down to earth guy. Props to him for acquiring two LFAs!! Talk about living the dream.
