Isn't that what that LF-LC concept was all about?
Zachary Maurer Jul 28, 2012
@ Thomas, ya Ikr, I did that for a while
Forrest T. Poulin Jul 27, 2012
It costs around $800,000 to produce this car if I'm not mistaken and it goes for $350,000-$400,000. Lexus is losing money making this car. This car is an engineers masterpiece. It's made only to show off what Toyota/Lexus is capable of doing.
Aaron Cartwright Jul 27, 2012
Hands down the best engine sound I've ever heard, from a street car. I got to watch Tanner thrash an lfa while they filmed top gear at the half moon bay airport, and all I can say is I'd pay the 400 grand to hear that sound everyday!
Thomas Mackey Jul 27, 2012
Zachary the "debate" was amusing at best. Plus you can't deny rattling the cage isn't fun sometimes. lol
Aaron Crisp Jul 27, 2012
But the Lexus is marketed as a luxury car... No denying that you'd have to have some pretty deep pockets to get a hold of an LFA.
Aaron Crisp Jul 27, 2012
I'd say your still pretty exclusive to have a ZR1, I've never seen one. And I live in Vegas, I see Lambos, Ferrari's, Aston Martins and Bentleys weekly. Usually at the outdoor shopping mall.
Zachary Maurer Jul 27, 2012
@thomas, good thing u posted that when this "debate" was dying down...
Abraham Mendoza Jul 27, 2012
Matt the ZR1 gets better brakes, suspension system, more carbon fibre, and better dynamics, not just a supercharger.
John Francis Jul 27, 2012
ZR1 is for people that want to go like hell and only go like hell. LFA is for people that want to go fast while experiencing luxury and exclusivity. They're two different cars for different people. Neither is overpriced. It's all about preference.
Thomas Mackey Jul 27, 2012
Regardless of what all of this means the new viper is going to destroy both the lfa and zr1. End of story.
Zachary Maurer Jul 27, 2012
@connor I completely agree, this is a worthless arguement
Eric Anthony Jul 27, 2012
Better to compare the acr to tha lfa than tha zr1 which wasn't really meant for tha 'ring.
Matt Piccolo Jul 26, 2012
But idk... U do have a good point in a way... I've just always thought it wasn't well rounded for the price due to the cheap ass interior... Like cars like the mustang and 370z have nicer interiors for heaven sakes
Matt Piccolo Jul 26, 2012
Found in a 35k car... Wit the Audi, ur also getting a new engine, same wit some of the Astons as well as better brakes, tires etc. Not just an add on to the engine (supercharger) and some handling upgrades
Matt Piccolo Jul 26, 2012
@ brian... But with the others, your getting more than just performance upgrades for their prices when u pay for the higher end models.. They're upgraded all round.. The 110k zr1 still has the Same cheap interior from a 50k car, that shouldn't be
Zachary Maurer Jul 26, 2012
@daniel, shut up, do you think Lexus the LUXERY car brand was going for 0-60? I don't think so, this is a great combination of a GT car and super car, Lexus gets soo much hate
Daniel Sullivan Jul 26, 2012
LFA doesn't even have dual clutch--shift times are terrible. 0-60 is slowest in its class. Concept car looked way better. Interior looks stupid. LFA is the most overrated car of all time.
Abraham Mendoza Jul 26, 2012
I understand the bad interior of the Vette because it still has to be a Vette all the way to the base Vette which costs $50,000. They can't change EVERYTHING on the ZR1 because it wouldn't be a Vette and it'd cost way more.
Matt Piccolo Jul 26, 2012
It's not even close to as exclusive ( I see vettes very day) and if u can't except the lfa for what it is, or at the price it is for why u get, then leave!
Matt Piccolo Jul 26, 2012
Sound or look as good, but that is personal opinion...
Matt Piccolo Jul 26, 2012
Yea people that call the lfa overpriced are very ignorant... It's priced like that for a reason... Exclusivity, performance, luxury, quality, NOISE etc etc... The zr1 doesn't have anything on the lfa IMO... It's of lower quality, slower, doesn't
Tin Nguyen Jul 26, 2012
A bigger heart and a muscular body.
Tin Nguyen Jul 26, 2012
The zr1 is just a high performance version of a lower priced vett. In the end it's still a vett. Look at the interior of a regular vett and a zr1. Any major differences? It's still the same interior. The point is the zr1 is still a vett with
Kyle Smith Jul 26, 2012
concrete factors such as material costs, production quantity, and cost of development do. I would pay 400,000$ for a Hyundai if it contained unprecedented engineering and an engine to die for.
Kyle Smith Jul 26, 2012
Guys the Lexus is an expensive car to say the least, no one can deny that fact. But to construct a counter argument against the LFA utilizing the phrase "it's a Toyota" is extremely primitive and ignorant. Brand names do not depict prices, more
Tin Nguyen Jul 26, 2012
Dissect both cars and look at the materials used in them then come back and tell me if the lfa is still overpriced.
Tin Nguyen Jul 26, 2012
Y is the lfa overpriced? R&d is expensive. Vett has been around for yrs. Chevy already has the foundation and all they do is change this and that and add a few new tech here and there. The lfa is the 1st of its kind for Lexus.
Zachary Maurer Jul 26, 2012
And the engine note is excellent, one of the best engines out there
Zachary Maurer Jul 26, 2012
Draw those looks too, but we know nothing about the brands reliability, Toyota as we know has great reliability, and gets on recalls fast, the zr1, well just looks like a regular vette with a plexiglass hood and chrome wheels, but all 3 cars r great.
Zachary Maurer Jul 26, 2012
If Jordan is like Connor a couple weeks ago, but you have to remember that this is a LIMITED run car, the zr1 is not, I see zr1s all the time, and the lfa only once, the lfa is well worth the extra money for exclusivity and looks, the mclaren can..
Abraham Mendoza Jul 26, 2012
The vette isn't over priced whatsoever, $110,000 for a car that's as fast as a $350,000 car? What should it cost? Anywho, yeah the car is pretty expensive, but it sounds great, its got a Carbon Fiber woven chassis, and a engineering marvel. But I hear its scarry to drive. I just wish it costs less.
Henz Herrero Jul 26, 2012
Buy one first then tell us its overpriced.. Its funny you keep saying that buy cant give a reason why.. Id rather have overpriced lux than an overpriced chevy anyday...
William Downs Jul 26, 2012
i dont know why it turned into a debate, i clearly stated it was my opinion not a fact, but some corvette fan boy had to take personal offense to it, personally i dont like the looks of the mclarren all that much, good car just not my taste. but to me this car is one of the best looking supercars out at the moment and the sound is just pure lust
Jordan Jackson Jul 26, 2012
Now please understand, I'm not intentionally attacking anyone, I'm just taking part in a simple debate that was already going on in here
Aiden Bass Jul 26, 2012
You'll don't know why the price is so high until YOU'VE ACTUALLY DRIVEN ONE.
Jordan Jackson Jul 26, 2012
And at almost $146,000 more, yes, it is an over priced Toyota, that's all for the L on the grill
Jordan Jackson Jul 26, 2012
And if you're going to call it the best next to the Agera, you forgot that the McLaren MP4-12C is faster, more power full, and more fuel efficient for much less money
Jordan Jackson Jul 26, 2012
Wow some bodies a little defensive about this, lol
David Purcell Jul 26, 2012
Agree with frank
William Downs Jul 26, 2012
well like i said.. imo, i think this looks 10x better then the vett, its faster around the track and sound a million times better, i like the vette dont get me wrong its a great car, but if the only negative u have on the car is " over priced toyota " then u just look retarded cause this car is an eginering marvel and there is nothing wrong with this car besides the price, and i would happily pay ...
Jordan Jackson Jul 26, 2012
Yea, an overpriced Toyota, lol
Frank Lam Jr. Jul 26, 2012
At the end of the day people will see a zr1 as a corvette but an lfa as something else
Zachary Maurer Jul 26, 2012
Eh just let the fanboys have their rants, I really don't care anymore he's just jealous he can't get the zr1 or lfa.
John Serely Jul 26, 2012
@korli because there are always vette fanboys
Korli Jorlk Jul 26, 2012
Y people bring up zr1 every time ?
Kyle Smith Jul 26, 2012
There are some great engines out there. The bottom line is that this is one of them.
Henz Herrero Jul 26, 2012
And u dont think the zr1 is an overpriced chevy? Lol..
Colby Church Jul 26, 2012
Best supercar? Lol. Not even close. I can buy 3 ZR1's for the price if 1 LFA and be happier with the looks and heritage behind the car and just as fast. The ZR1 goes 0-60 in 3.3. The LFA is 3.4. And ZR1 sounds 10x better. LFA = overpriced Toyota.
Jordan Jackson Jul 26, 2012
@Kyle: maybe more #1 for volumetric efficiency in an N/A engine
Jordan Jackson Jul 26, 2012
@Brady: not to mention the vipers V10 makes more power
Nick Schnee Jul 26, 2012
The sound of this thing is spectacular...
Brady Fereday Jul 26, 2012
I don't know the vipers v10 is pretty bad ass too
Kyle Smith Jul 26, 2012
I would rank it as the number 1 naturally aspirated super car in the world. That 4.8L V10 is unprecedented.
John Serely Jul 26, 2012
@william I completely disagree, but it is still a very awesome car!
William Downs Jul 26, 2012
best supercar in the world after the agera imo
Hektor Yberg Jul 26, 2012
It looks like a flat flying rabbit screaming KARATEEEE!!!!! Just sayin
Skylar Grout Jul 30, 2012
I don't see any buts though
Puneet Dass Jul 26, 2012
I like big butts and I cannot lie
David Purcell Jul 26, 2012
Some cool pics of it at least
