I'm very impressed with the layout of the facility and how well they are doing with 5S.

I believe they actually only leased the cars because they didn't want people to just buy it as a collectable. I would love to see a video of their craftsmanship.

The car is dead sexy! Expensive as all hell, but if I had the money I wouldn't hesitate to buy one. Not the best bang for your buck as far as super cars are concerned. However, when it comes right down to it, the overall engineering of this car is phenomenal!

It has been big news in the lexus community, did anyone see the tweet by Lexus Magazine of Paris Hilton showing off her new LFA? A lot of people think it is good marketing for the brand while others aren't in favor of the celebrity promotion.

What do you think?
