Default Brownstone LFA (Video inside)

I stumbled onto an AOL list of LFAs for sale and a shop in Willoughby OH has a Brownstone car.

If anyone is in the area, please get us some pics as this would be the second, year 2 color palette car known to hit the US shores.

Other trivia, of the 14 cars on the AOL list, Herb Chambers has one with a black interior. I wonder if he got a second one or had the orange interior replaced in the brown one he has.

No pics yet but a Google of the vin number yielded some configuration factoids (red calipers, oh no!)

BROWN STONE EXTERIOR COLOR
HEADLAMP CLEANER
METALLIC TRIM BROWNISH BLACK
RED BRAKE CALIPERS
SADDLE TAN DOOR TRIM/ DASH & C
SADDLE TAN STEERING GRIP
SEAT BACK- BLACKISH BROWN
SEAT FRONT- SADDLE TAN
STITCHING BLACKISH BROWN

Also, It looks like the dealership is one of these mega businesses, Classic Auto Group.

Would love to see this brown color. Honestly, I like the Herb Chamber's brown LFA.

Yeup... Classic Lexus in City of Willoughby Hills - OH

Sounds like it has "SILVER Wheel Finish" too..

So I wonder if the production numbers are still +2 of the VIN... so this would be number 225? Or maybe the gap is larger now? Hmmm.

I spoke with the dealer and he will get me some exterior pics

He said it is locked and can not get good interior pics or a look at the chassis number

They have had the car close to 3 weeks

It is a config 3 and he believes it has the polished wheels

The designated Badge Number is on the special plate.. (as we all know by now)

Agreed.. It's LFA Color Code: 9J1 aka Brownstone... Another year two color

It should look much better than the "Pearl Brown"..
