Default Yet another LFA Nurburgring Edition in the US

So, another (4th?) LFA Nurburgring Edition has surfaced in the US. It was shown at the Supercar Sunday at West Hills, CA on 4/29/2012. It's the famous orange color, but the brake calipers are red in color, and it carries a different badge number as well.

Thanks for the pics from your double siting

One of the reflections in a pic from the ring car showed that it only had a dealer logo plate from Jim Falk Lexus in Beverly Hills

Do you know if the car has an owner?

Yellow???

The color is ORANGE .... Fix your screen color settings.. LoL

This particular Nürburgring Edition LFA would seem to be sold..!!
Clearly the Temp. Registration Tag on the front windshield is the dead giveaway...

Those tags are only issued when a sale is completed and a Temp. DMV tag is printed..

So I doubt Lexus USA is the buyer. Since you already know what plates they run..

this is a different LFA nur spec. different badge number, different brake calipers. thanks joe for the details

thank you so much again moto, fantastic stuff, and it's great to see 2 lfa together

and yeah, the car with the registration tag, i think that means the car is "sold". if it's owner car, i would assume they just put it under the dealership. by doing this dmv tag, it's bunch of registration, tax, etc...

bottom line, we are seeing this on the road, that's FANTASTIC!!!!!

Sorry for not crediting you for starting the thread in my previous post

Joe
Thanks for pointing to the temp tag as I had not seen this Cali registration tool before
