This has to be exciting news for fellow car enthusiasts, for it gives us one more rare supercar to look out for on the roads.
When the LFA first appeared as a concept all those years ago, I have to admit, I wasn't very impressed. The idea of Lexus, owned by Toyota, creating a supercar to rival the likes of Ferrari seemed a bit far-fetched to me at the time.
However, I then managed to catch the car in the metal at the Singapore Motorshow back in 2006, and I was simply taken away. It really is one of those cars (pardon the cliche) where pictures don't do it justice, and it just looks sensational in the flesh.
The LFA had a troubled birth, with Lexus wanting it to be perfect before releasing it to the public. Hence it was only until 2009 when the Japanese carmaker officially announced production of its flagship supercar. In the meantime, the concept car kept making the rounds at various motor shows around the world, leaving the motoring press to speculate when the production car will finally come to fruition, if at all.
I guess the wait was worth it, although at a massive S$1.3 million, only the truly rich and exclusive would really get to know the prowess of this magnificent machine.
For us mere mortals, we can only drool as it passes us by on the roads.
