2012 Lexus LFA

There are some things that I simply don’t understand about the automotive world. Lexus, who is set to release only 500 of the new 2012 LFA, has already sold out and or leased these vehicles to perspective owners. The flippin’ car isn’t even on the road yet. I mean I know that this thing is supposed to be an amazing car, but is it really that much more amazing than say a Ferrari 458, a Lamborghini Mercialago or even a Nissan GT-R. Combine that with the fact that the car is $375,000 and it truly does make me scratch my head. Automakers like the aforementioned Ferrari and Lamborghini have a long history of making some of the most beautiful and best performing super cars in the world, but Lexus? I simply don’t know and am totally perplexed by all the hoopla surrounding this car.

The 2012 Lexus LFA is a technological masterpiece, there is no doubt about that. It’s fast, handles great, has 2 million computers and looks good, but like the Nissan GT-R the car lacks the main ingredient that makes a super car, a super car – it lacks soul. Take a look at this video and tell me if you don’t agree.

The other thing about the Lexus LFA is that at least in the United States anyway, they are only available for lease due to price fixing regulations. WTF is this all about? The LFA is an amazing car but for people to plunk down $375,000 for an automobile that stems from a company with no history of making super cars, well, that is simply beyond me.

    Well, you know what they say; “Some people have more money than brains.” Besides, if you can afford to plunk down 375k on a car, are you REALLY going to worry about that it’s not going to live up to its hype? Besides, even if it totally bombs, and becombs the Edsall of SuperCars, it’ll still go down in history, and therefore have enough cache’ to enough people, that you could still probably make some money off of it, selling it to someone who has even more money and less brains than you do.

    This article has no purpose. Why buy a Bugatti Veyron, Aston Martin DBS, or any other super car? You buy it because you are swimmin in money like Scrooge McDuck. Soul? Have you driven the car? No. So take this POS article and shove it up your soul-less ass.
