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 prefer aluminum over carbon fiber all day long. lfa is 3200 LBS a 2004 Jaguar XJ weight 3800LBS, db9 weight 3900lbs i might be mistaken but i feel like carbon fiber is over rated. if weight is the only issue i am sure we can shave some weight off without going full carbon fiber.

  • Absolutely a 🏆 worthy video that made me wanna have SG as my only subscription with an active 🔔 👍🏻. So my takeaway from this (tho not much of a Lexus fanboy) Is realizing Toyota does have a “soul” and a true passion for Motorsports - however ironic that Lexus spent a BILLION 💵 on this “Engineering Wet Dream”, but 20y later Toyota could not resurrect the SUPRA with their own design, instead “rebadge” a Z4.

  • An insane amount of engineering effort, no limits on materials, a half million dollar sticker price and zero concerns on serviceability. Yet, a billion dollars later it manages to be SLOWER than a $60,000 C8 Corvette with a push rod engine and steel chassis. No wonder it's a halo car which brought no halo, just a lot of head scratching.

    • @- It's called being SMART... (1) It's faster. (2) It can be worked on anywhere and everywhere. (3) While the LFA tried (and failed) to have a 48F/52R weight balance, it actually does have that magic 48/52 ratio. (4) Despite having a traditional Steel and Aluminum chassis, it is actually 200 lbs LIGHTER than the LFA. (5) ONE EIGHTH the price.

  • First, a criticism: Why would you add generic symphonic music to this, of all videos? You should remix with engine sound only. But, I praise this video for the detailing of design and engineering. The sound is always the prime ingredient in an LFA video, and I loved hearing the car pull from low revs, with those deeper tones I hadn't heard before. Either you get the LFA as is, or you don't. It isn't a stopwatch car, and it doesn't need more power. That V10 may have a place in car history as one of the greatest engines ever.

  • They took so much time and $ developing this car, they didn't try to make it look like a super car. For people who don't know about cars, they would see this as just a normal sedan you see on the street. And it does look like just an average passenger car, nothing aggressive. It doesn't make you look super rich. That's another big reason why the sales was so low.
