God the LFA is hideous

Call me crazy but I actually prefer the V12 to the V10......but they're both

People who buy these cars do not care about how much faster or slower they are around a track. They buy them as status symbols and they probably have everything else already.

agreed - but even the people who can drop $500k on a vehicle still must pause a little and say -- it's a fking lexus/toyota -- what's the resale value and status symbol of that ? w/ a Ferrari/Lambo/Bugatti/AM - the name speaks for itself

I respectfully disagree...
We can't relate to LF-A drivers.. They have even more money than Lorenzo. The LF-A will be a guaranteed classic and I expect the resale value to be as good as a CGT, if not better...

Anyone who buys a supercar as a status symbol would NOT want to be seen in a lexus. No offense to you of course, just use common logic. The status symbol seeking customer would rather be in a ferrari than a lexus.

God the LF-A is such a joke, I mean you could have just about anything you want short of a koenigsegg, pagani, or bugatti for the price.
