Not really a fan of this car, but the interior is gorgeous.

I like the car.

But I think, it should have been priced at $120K, with production output upped to 2000 units.

$120k? C'mon that's too low. The car is a 200k car, not 350.

My prob with the pricing structure is that once you get up to $150K+, for my money, I'm gonna buy Italian all day long.

For a jap car, I think it has to be priced less than the euro exotics... obviously Lexus disagrees with me.

Wow... When you see normal shots of sports cars they look so much cooler in most cases. The LF-A is one of them That must be one very happy customer! Didn't know they were delivering yet.

The only thing that resembles a Lexus on this car is that is says Lexus on it. (which is unfortunate) The engineering that went into this car is incredible and it looks pretty snazzy too. The way it revs and sounds is beautiful.

Perhaps Lexus, but a lot of people agreed with you. Witness this weeks edition of Autoweek (car magazine) with an article on the LF-A at Willow Springs saying that world demand has been lower than expected and they are now shifting another 60 units to the US market in hopes of getting rid of them! Too expensive indeed.
