    Sounds kinda weird. People say the GT-R does everything for you just because it's awd...yet somehow, Lexus has managed to capture that in a rwd car. :o

    i admire how they're launching it... unveiling + immediate reviews... immidiately making a phone number available for people to call to express interest... and theyre not selling them, only leasing, and only to who they approve..

    yea, like the 'super' ferraris... f40, f50, enzo
    most ferraris are sold to dealers first. then you gotta kiss major ass to be able to buy one, but most are sold in special deals.

    the lfa will be sold through lexus financial and sent to the dealer of the buyers choice...

    I was going to say 'why not get a Maserati MC12 and bypass all the being chosen nonsense?' but they cost considerably more than I thought. :o

    " Its 3.7-second zero-to-60 time falls short of the GT-R, and it can't come close to the Nissan's point-to-point brutality."

    And it costs almost 5 times as much... fail

    I can understand a higher price due to low production numbers, and that you're also paying for exclusivity...but the early rumors of $120k would have been much better.

    I can understand that aluminum would have meant overshooting their weight goal, but y'know what? You can't always have your cake and eat it too. Even the McLaren F1 overshot its weight goal. Sometimes you just have to call it a day before you're in too deep.
