damn how much is the insurance on normal LFA , once repaired does LFA Japan have parts to repair the 499 LFA globally?

I believe repairs for damage of this scope are done at the Toyota F1 facility in Germany

If that's the case, that's great news! I'd trust buying a "rebuilt" LFA from the factory.

Sad to see....

This one looks fixable.... Will probably need extensive repairs to the Carbon fiber monocoque cabin..

Words can not describe how I'd feel if I were to crash an LFA.

Whoever bought that LFA in china is likely very wealthy since they had to pay two or more times the price of a USA priced LFA, making them a very high net worth individual.

They can afford to fix it, that is, if they want to.
