Default LC vs LFA


Not bad actually given the weight, performance, price mismatch....

The braking test was especially surprising given the squeaky brake issues and the weight... The LC brakes are maybe good, after all.

Lexus did a good job balancing performance, luxury, cost, etc with the LC... but that old V10 sound is phenomenal...

500K beats 100K everyday....

That owner of the LFA has been thrashing it for many years and does drag racing regularly at VMAX 200 events.

The owner has racing slicks on, which don't grip in the wet and MPSS have great wet braking, which is why the braking test is quite flawed. The carbon ceramic brakes are meant to be used on the track at warm temperatures where they don't fade after repeated abuse.

Seems like an odd comparison to me. Other than being from the same brand, not at all apples to apples.

Stupid comparison. LC closer in driving quality to a Camry. LFA closer to a Porsche GT3 RS. No *******t REALLY..... However I am waiting for the LC-F for my DD. Essentially impossible to beat that Lexus quality.

That comment is just as irrelevant as comparing these two cars.

I have driven both, have you? Doubt it, so your comment is without basis, mine is.

Another irrelevant comment, you comparing LC driving dynamics to a Camry is still as stupid as it was on your first try.

Calling me childish names doesn’t make you any smarter. I have every right to object to comments when they make absolutely no sense and yours was as far from factual as could be.

Once again, I have driven all three cars and while I like the LC and I think it is a fantastic car and plan on purchasing the F variant, it indeed does offer a driving experience closer to the Camry than the LFA. This is my opinion and if you donít agree that is certainly your prerogative, but to say that it a ridiculous statement is just immature and close minded. If you have also driven all three then you could draw your own conclusion and at that point we could have a valid debate........ Sorry to rain and n your parade

No harm done, we (several other members and myself) agree to disagree with you.
