Default 4 LFA's at 2012 Chicago Auto Show

Here's a world's first for Lexus. 4 Lexus LFA's parked together at an autoshow!!! LF-LC Concept is in the distance. Looks like some new ones have popped up. #144 and 184. I still like the Dark Premium Metallic Wheels the best.

  • LFA #026 - Black (Owner from Chicago Area)
  • LFA#057 - Red (McGrath Lexus)
  • LFA #144 - Red (New)
  • LFA#184 - Pearl Yellow (New)

Seriously! Maybe hundred millions in the Lexus booth. Can you imagine the total cost of all the cars at the Auto Show? Billions?

Nah, Lexus wanted my LFA in for it, but the shipping dates didn't work out for my schedule.

Yeah it would have been really nice to see your car on there. We've seen these colors plenty of times already.

Well if you have two reds, one yellow and one black there is no way you can't make a German flag

We know well the black #026 one is owned by a guy in Chicago. He has been on TV as well.

Some videos of the #026:

More reasons to hit the show here in Chicago.

The plaque number added to the rear plate was a nice touch for these LFAs

Off topic, I took the kids to Indy to go to the Super Bowl and there was nothing in terms of cool cars there, unless you like police cruisers and motorcycles (more than you see in DC near the White House).

Driving down to Indy I did see the huge sign board of an LFA that Lexus of Merriville has.

Looks like it was delivered at Lexus of Orland Park. I've seen the sales rep at the dealership.

Orland Park is correct.

The owner has a computer recycling business South of the city.

I believe I met him at the LFA event at the Autobahn Country Club in May of 2010. Nice guy.
