where has this guy been?
Christo Savaides May 15, 2012
You'd think he'd just own one.
Dillon Dixon May 15, 2012
I kinda agree, but he has done a lot for the sport. And I mean a lot!
Andrew Grimm May 15, 2012
Tony hawk is over rated.
Chris Penza May 15, 2012
Isn't he like 45?

Obnsx... What the hell are you saying?
Stephen Reed Warren II May 26, 2012
Hey obnxs.... I like Mercedes better than Lexus - but Mercedes makes low end cars with base prices in the 30's too. Just like Beamer, Lexus, and Audi

I'll just say what everybody's thinking. Hold my beer.

For that much money I'd rather have the pride of a Hennessy Twin Turbo Viper... And still have $200k+ to play with... You can make it as fast and expensive as you want, but when you get down to it, it's still a Lexus.
Thibault Leroy May 16, 2012
well im saying in relativity to the price it is underpowered and it lacks the prestige and a soul
Kris C. Lopez May 16, 2012
If he fell on it nothing would Happen. Just a few paint scratches maybe, worst case scenario a broken windshield. CFRP FTW

It seem tony hawk not happy ! He wanna drive at the track instead this silly boring ollies trick !
Patrick Joseph May 15, 2012
It does very well on the track. That's a fact. However I still don't like it. It takes more than performance numbers for me to like a car. There must be something about it. It lacks that something IMO.
Zach Sullivan May 15, 2012
I dont think so but not due to lack of power but aerodynamics i think it would accel faster but once u get to 215 or 220 the bugatti would catch up but I will admit it is over priced considering it doesn't have the prestige of say Ferrari
Byakka Hirakawa May 15, 2012
Underpower? I dont think so U guys gotta relize this is just a v10 with nothing, id say if u turbo or supercharge this, it could well pass bugatti just sayin
Mario Callirgos May 15, 2012
Ya the LFA is a steal compared to the juke R
Zach Sullivan May 15, 2012
So ur saying 3.6 is slow??? That is incredibly fast especially in an FR
Thibault Leroy May 15, 2012
@Carlos well yea but for a 375k dollar car you shouldnt have that problem. If the car didnt look so good everyone would hate it. Thats why i dont really like the LFA its overpriced, underpowered, and its a Lexus.
Matthew Reindorp May 15, 2012
Oh wait just re-read it my mistake
Matthew Reindorp May 15, 2012
Then I've got to ask... Why does 50-60 take almost a whole second?
Carlos Ernesto Garcia May 15, 2012
For those of you who think that a car for 375k should do 60 in less time, the reason is a 6 speed with longer gears than a 7/8 speed gearbox. It hits 50 in 2.7 and shifts to 2nd at 50
Osian Williams May 15, 2012
That was close on the other side
Isaac Taylor May 15, 2012
Just don't fail
Tevin Xko Davis May 16, 2012
Well couldn't 180 the car?? Lol But it's just sweet either way.
Zach Sullivan May 16, 2012
So he got rich by doing stuff for free? Hmmmm
Eli Dirk May 16, 2012
It wasn't a waste if time for him cuz he just got a big paycheck.
Zach Sullivan May 15, 2012
That "waste of time" earned him millions of dollars
John Serely May 15, 2012
Isn't it a waste of time to write its a waste of time to write its a waste of time? JK lol
Patrick Joseph May 15, 2012
Isn't it a waste of time to call it a waste of time ?
Ceyda Deniz Gurler May 15, 2012
Wow!! What a waste of time
