Exhaust note is ridiculous and up there with a straight pipe M5 imho. The gauge cluster is also just pure art. Really really nice but I'm just not a huge fan of the exterior. I know Lexus was trying to make a point and won't make a dime off any of these that are sold but kudo's for doing it. Just watched the review on Top Gear a couple of days ago and it looks like richard liked it too.

lol no comparison... the LF-A is in the same league as the Enzo, Zonda, SLR, CGT, and Reventon. the SL600 is a nice car but its a GT cruiser with gobs of power. the LF-A is a road-going race car. totally different markets.

btw there's no such thing as a SL600 AMG. your friend's car is a SL600 badged to make it look like an AMG. the real AMG car is the SL65 AMG.

Oh I just assumed it was an AMG because the SL600 is a BEAST! :D

And yeah I know SL600 is not in the same league as the LF-A, I'm just jealous that you got to drive it... And I'm just saying V12 > V10 :lol:

haha sorry don't want to take this off topic :)

HUGE. here are my lifetime fascinations (and loves), in order of appearance:

1) cars (been into cars since I was a toddler)
2) art
3) music
4) photography

That list is close to me as well. The only reason I got into photography is because I had to sell my car to afford school. Figured I would try to keep my mind off the cost of cars and into something cheaper.

Beautiful Supra as well. Did you ever go down to the Texas Supra meet? I was thinking about going this year but didnt realize it was in March. Maybe next year.

By the screen name, I would assume you sold it because of crank walk :)
I had a GSX and after the second motor went I got out of that game.. :)

But I'm kinda like both of you,
I mostly got into photography because I had a super cute girlfriend and I wanted to take lots of pictures of her.. :D

Never seen an actually crankwalked bottom end in person. Its funny how people will spin a rod bearing/etc and immediately think it is crankwalk. Not saying it doesn't happen, but considering that it happens in well less than 5% of all cars, I dont worry about it.

Besides, high horsepower Supras crankwalk more than DSM's do, but you never hear people say anything about that.

Really nice of you to rag out your friends car.


Kodak disposable, Ansco 35mm disk, Polaroid my parents gave me. That's about all I need really.
