Lexus LFA | A Proper Goodbye

27-Noy, 2020
550 068 Ko‘rishlar soni

We review and celebrate the long gone Lexus LFA, a car briefly made from 2011-2012. With only 500 manufactured, this extremely rare and largely misunderstood car, has mystique. We attempt to break down and tell the story of what made it special. The LFA despite the badge speaks a universal language. Whether you are a Ferrari, Porsche, Chevy or Ford fan there is something in this video you will appreciate. If you are big fan of the Toyota Supra, 86, LC500, F Products you may wonder if this Lexus is the next $1,000,000 car?

  • I am about to finish nursing school, I was not really sure what I wanted to do so I went into nursing for a save a meaningful job. I love cars since I have memory, there is just an intangible about them that makes me spend countless hours just learning about them, from the history, technology and anything remotely related. If you are anything like me, nothing really inspires you but those body lines, the passion that is clearly imprinted on the craftmanship that went into this vehicle and the goosebumps I get when listening to that engine, nothing before have made me feel like that. I know my calling is into cars. This is one of those revealing moments of your life and I have to thank savagegeese, you just changed someone's life! Cheers to not hating what you do for a living!

  • I had the lucky opportunity to have Scott Pruett take me around the Long Beach Grand Prix track in a LFA. One of the most memorable experiences of my life, the sounds, the acceleration, and brakes were amazing. As he hit 160mph, with a turn approaching I couldn’t believe the amount of negative Gs it produced.

  • Even Japanese people don't make such wonderful videos ❗️ It's like a documentary movie 🎞❗️ It's been 10 years since it was released ... At that time, I was surprised at the carbon fiber body! ️ It may be a supercar that is too particular about everything, I want to own it once in my life. I will do my best to save money and definitely buy LFA ❗️ By the way, I am Japanese.🇯🇵💦

  • i love this rich history of development, engineering (especially the 匠たちの哲学 (philosophy of craftsmanship) part), budgets, challenges, and 棚橋春彦様のストーリー (haruhiko tanahashi’s story) that all made the world’s best supercar a reality. Adds tons of reasons of why to add this to my dream garage. As I say to Lexus (レクサス), Yamaha (ヤマハ) and Toyota (トヨタ), お疲れ様でした (great work). Love this video!!

  • Lexus has to come up with a new supercar like this. They won't compete in raw 0-100, 1/4 mile, etc but man, why would you care about that when the speed limit is 100-130 kph ? The sound, the attention to details...

  • Hum Just a thought here but If you want the next Supra real SUPRA the LFA has the making of a Supra Super Car level Ferrari killing machine. Not like they are not already but from the factory. You hear me Toyota

  • LFA was a joke top 1% people that can buy new or used, LFA cant beat 60% with the same amount of money it worth, LFA was half million dollar, almost every half million dollars car can beat it like WTF.

  • I own a 2013 ISF, that's about as close as I will get to an LFA. I got to see a few of them in person in showrooms and once parked next to one at Cars N Coffee (Blackhawk, CA 2014). I hope you realize how fortunate you are to be able to build your LFA to spec, very few people in this lifetime will be able to do that, let alone own/drive one. Have fun and be safe.

  • Toyota was smart. The American elite had just stolen everything with the market crash and they had to sell "some" cars, so they decided to go a mix of Ferrari and Grey Poupon. Subsequently not one of their basic cars got any upgrades. In 2020 they f__ked up.

  • Fascinating video; thank you. I had no idea about the level of engineering that went into the LFA; it's stunning. Need to watch this film a few more times to let it all soak in. Please do some 'focus on' videos certain elements in the future, as this car deserves it! Cheers, Rich

  • 7:36 I don't think that the column mount pedals should change. Wheel mounted pedal shifters are the absolute wrong thing to put on 'production car.' It would definitely work on racecars like F1s and other racecars BECAUSE the lock to lock distance of the wheel is short and rapid so you basically glue your hands on 3 and 9. This is a car that you pull the upshift pedal to go to drive. Imagine doing a 3 point turn if the pedals were mounted on the wheel and you at full lock. Is the down the up? or the up is down? Does wheel mounted pedals appear on Drift cars or Rally cars? Never! Wheel mounted pedals are for the tracks. I know if this car is out on the track the steering input won't be big. However, this is a car that will mostly be driven on the road rather than the track.

  • I honestly think that Toyota made so many mistakes with the Lexus LFA. 1. The Lexus LFA was too expensive. 2. The hoops that someone had to go through in order to own one honestly insulted practically all vehicle owners. 3. The Dodge/Chrysler Viper did practically all that the Lexus LFA did for one sixth of the price, thus proving that Toyota did not need as much money as they thought that they did in making a Lexus LFA. 4. Toyota and Chrysler honestly needed a rivalry with their V10 behemoths, as it honestly was the biggest missed rivalry opportunity of all time. 5. The amount of Lexus LFA vehicles that were sold was way too small. Had Toyota realized what they had on their hands, they would have made that rivalry happen and that they also would have had one of the best vehicle rivalries of all time.
