Well, I have to say that this week certainly has been an interesting one for the Lexus LFA right here on AutoSpies.
While Jeremy Clarkson declares it's the best car he's ever driven — it's not like he hasn't done that before with cars like the Ferrari 355 and F430 — people get all up in arms about it. Why? I have no clue. You would think that Lexus is drowning these commenters' mothers or something.
This is what happens when you stick up your middle finger and do exactly the opposite of everyone's preconceived notions. People get pissed.
That's why I LOVE the LFA, not to mention it is easily one of the most amazing vehicles I have had the opportunity to drive.
Here's another news item for the haters. The very last U.S.-bound vehicle has been delivered to its adoring owner, who's based out of Georgia. Even better, this is his second LFA.
Though I don't know Roy Mallady, he sounds like the coolest 68-year-old guy I have ever heard of. That's because he tracks his first LFA and knows what he wants. He doesn't care what you have to say about it.
That's probably because he's owned just about everything under the sun: Maseratis, Ferraris, Porsches, the Nissan GT-R, an Audi R8, etc.
Out of them all he says that the LFA is "the greatest car I've ever owned," and "It's a piece of art."
I raise my glass to you, Roy. Enjoy them in good health!
Roy Mallady turns 68 in a week. So he figured, why not buy himself a car?
He just happened to buy himself a nice, reliable Lexus: an LFA. The fastest, most involving, most superlative vehicle Toyota has ever built...
